Posted on 25 June 2010 by "T".

Ante Up for Africa is a nonprofit organization that's raising money and awareness for Africans in need. The organization was founded by Don Cheadle, Norman Epstein and Annie Duke. Since a few years ago, Ante Up for Africa has been a returning charity event at the World Series of Poker where lots of celebs usually take part.

New for this year is that they have launched an online campaign where the aim is to raise $10,000 before the Main Event starts on July 5. In 2009, $600,000 was raised and donated to three Darfur-related charities. Let's hope that more money will be raised this year!

Posted on 20 October 2009 by "T".

This time World Poker Tour visited Marrakech, Morocco, and created the biggest poker tournament in African history. Not less than 416 players signed up for the tournament, which had a buy-in of €4,500. The total prize pool landed on $2,450,223, and the first prize $563,551.

This historic tournament was however not won by a local, but instead by the Frenchmen Christophe Savary. Savary and Eoghan O'Dea came to be the 2 last men standing in the tournament. Both of the players had plenty of chips and it seemed like it could be a very long struggle for the win.

However, everything came to an end when Christophe Savary made his straight against Eoghan's top pair when both players went all-in on the flop. Christophe Savary received $563,551 for the win, and Eoghan O'Dea got $392,036 for the second place.

1 Christophe Savary $563,551
2 Eoghan O'Dea $392,036
3 Ludovic Lacay $245,022
4 Julien Arneodo $156,814
5 Adrian Marin $107,810
6 Benny Spindler $83,308
