There are never enough visibility events for modern day genocide, in my humble opinion. So this weekend’s Ante Up for Africa celebrity poker match is a much-welcomed occasion. The online poker site UltimateBet is hosting the event in hopes of alleviating some of the pain and suffering in Darfur, Sudan.

There will be six online tournaments in all, featuring celebs such as Don Cheadle, a champion of the cause, Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke, Shawn Rice, and others. All fees being donated to the cause.

Ante Up For Africa was created to raise public awareness and funds for Sudan-related charities. UltimateBet has been working with them since July, giving players easy options to contribute to the organization using their UltimatePoints. I’m not much of a gambler myself, but with the stakes so high in Darfur, I think I’d like to place a bet.
