“Ante Up For Africa” charity tournament: Adjourned for the month of November
One of the appointments that become indispensable in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) circuit, the "Ante Up For Africa" charity tournament will miss for the first time its rendezvous this year 2011. Indeed, traditionally scheduled during the WSOP summer events since 2007, this poker event of big names of Hollywood film dedicated to the victims of Darfur can't be played at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas during this summer. The reason is that one of the main instigators of the charity tournament, the actor Don Cheadle is currently unavailable due to an ongoing project. So the co-initiator and famous poker player, Annie Duke decided to postpone the competition a few months.
However, the charity poker event will always give appointment to players in the same establishment, at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas in November. "Ante Up For Africa" will take place at the same time as the Main Event Final of the World Series of Poker 2011. Moreover, Hollywood celebrities used to this annual event such as Jason Alexander, Matt Dammon, Ben Affleck, Ray Romano, Brad Garrett and Shannon Elizabeth will still play the game with the legends of American sports and poker. As a reminder, the latest edition of the charity tournament 2010 brought together a field of 500 players and provided a gain of 275,000 dollars to the humanitarian organization. In addition, for information, the fund raising picked up since the first organization of the tournament four years ago, until now has already reached the amount of $ 3.2 million.
