Two Winners for WSOP Celebrity Event Ante Up for Africa
It's not too uncommon for poker players going heads-up at a final table to agree to share the prize money. But it's a little less common for two players to agree to split the prize money and donate 100% of their winnings to charity.
That's exactly what happened last night at the final table of the World Series of Poker's celebrity charity event, Ante Up for Africa.
After fighting his way through 166 poker pros and poker celebrities, Dan Shak stood up from his seat at the final table and announced he would donate every cent of any prize money he won to the "Ante Up for Africa" designated charities – the Enough Project and the International Rescue Committee.
Shak's opponent, Brandon Moran, then stood up and announced he too would pledge the same donation – 100 percent of all money won to the charities for Darfur. With that, the poker tournament abruptly ended and first place was shared by two players.
The total amount of money donated from these two champions alone amounted to $386,738. The combined money raised from the evening was a half million dollars since every player donated at least a portion of their winnings to the charity.
