The amFar charity tournament turned out really well this year as the buy-in of $5000 didn't scare off poker pros, celebs and other people from taking part (Slash from Guns 'N Roses, Nelly, Mats Sundin etc). Some of the participants of the tournament even made a few re-buys (PokerStars Pro William Thorson, just to mention 1 player with a big heart). Thanks to so many generous people - not less than $97,500 was donated to cancer research.
The winner of the tournament came to be Spencer Benjafield, an Englishmen who won his seat through a freeroll for players with 'supernova status' at PokerStars. For the win he received $37,500 from the total prize pool of $195,000.
