Don Cheadle is one of the guys behind the charity poker tournament "Ante Up for Africa" that managed to collect more than $2 Million for Sudan so far. This event that will take place during the 2009 WSOP is attracting a lot of stars every year. And it is not only poker stars that are interested in this tournament because you will also find movie stars like Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in this tournament.

Other than this charity poker tournament Cheadle have also been participating in a lot of other charity poker tournaments and for the third year in a row he participated in the NBC National Heads-up Championship. This year he managed to beat David "The Dragon" Pham in the first round but busted out in the second round against Paul Wasicka. In his first ever season of the NBC Championship he managed to bust out Phil Ivey in the first round but in the second round he busted out that time as well.

As one of the members of Team FullTilt we can be sure that we will see more of this very charitable poker player at the tables.

It is very nice to see the ones who really have a way to help the most needed doing it! Everybody likes to win big when we talk of playing, but whats the problem if the biggest pot goes to help human kind? Thats a cause! That can be a reason to put people playing, if someone needs motivation to help the ones who really need!

Yep he is great in the Ocean's movie! But he also had the leading role in Hotel Rwanda, a very good movie about the Hutu's and the Tutsi's. He did that very well

I love the guy!

He is a great actor! I did not know that he plays poker too. If his skills in poker are so good as his talent as an actor i think he could make a very good poker career! I hope someday i watch him play on tv and then i will say what i think!
