Poker, poker. You like poker? Celebrities like poker. On the third day of the World Series of Poker, celebs hit the red carpet and the poker tables to support the third annual Ante Up For Africa charity event.

This poker tournament, created by Annie Duke and Don Cheadle, provides aid and assistance to the survivors of the crisis in Darfur. And celebrities love helping Darfur!

Some stars who attended the event include Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Cedric the Entertainer, Mike Tyson, Nelly, Dean Cain, and Jason Alexander. According to the Casino City Times, although Ben and Matt were the biggest celeb draws, Mike Tyson was the one everyone was focusing on. Maybe it’s cause he could break anyone with one finger? Just a thought.

The night continued with good times, joking, and poker playing, although this happy mood will def be gone soon as the super serious poker players hit the World Series.
