Official Report on Ante-Up for Africa

by , Jul 3, 2009 | 9:19 am

Click below for Nolan’s official report — all the data you could want, complete with quotes from celebrity players, information on who exactly played (and won), and info about the fundraising component. A few things that stand out to me:

  • 138 entries. Up from 88 last year, which was way down from 167 in 2007. Wonder what’s up with that — The economy? Celebrity Apprentice?
  • The Scheinbergs played? I was under the impression that the family atop the PokerStars pyramid was taking a long vacation from the United States, particularly in light of the payment processor crackdown … but maybe not? Different Scheinberg family from New York?
  • Philip Tom, dad of accused online-poker bad guy, cashed, finishing in 10th place. Charity makes everything good.
  • Belorussian wins. (Should this event be included in the Pokerati World Standings?)
  • Who was the one player who didn’t play ball with the donation process?
