Ante Up for Africa

Ante Up For Africa Fundraiser at EPT Grand Final


On Monday night at the EPT Grand Final in Monte Carlo, Poker Stars hosted a celebrity charity poker tournament to benefit Ante Up for Africa. A bunch of celebs attended, including Nelly, Christina Milian, The Dream, Joel Madden, James Kyson Lee (Heroes), and Jason Lewis (Sex & the City, Brothers and Sisters). It was a $5,000 buy-in tournament and raised a pretty impressive $341,500 for the cause. Some pics from the event below and above.

Adam Sandler Also Played the Ante Up for Africa Charity Poker Tournament

Adam Sandler at the Ante Up for Africa Charity Poker Tournament

Adam Sandler couldn't hide his excitement of playing in the Ante Up for Africa charity poker tournament yesterday

Not much more to say than the headline above. We have tons of photos from the first 3 and a half minutes of the event yesterday before all the celebs busted, so we're dumping some more on you.

See a few more shots of Adam from a different angle by clicking thumbnails below.

And oh yeah, Johnny World Hennigan took down the event and won a bunch of money. He was asked to give 50% of it to charity and he ended up giving it all away because apparently pros like him and John Phan are out to make us seem like bigger assholes than we already are.

If we were the type of guys who posted on a poker forum run by sanctimonious old douchebag pricks, we'd probably make a Phil Ivey joke here.

But we're far better than that.

Seriously, we are. Don't laugh.

So yeah, Don Cheadle, aka one of the coolest dudes alive, and Mekhi Phifer were among the celebs who played today in the Ante Up for Africa poker tournament and incidentally both showed up wearing the same not-so-limited limited edition Ed Hardy t-shirt (which apparently runs about $2k).
