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.
