Charles Barkley in celebrity poker tourney.


Charles Barkley, the retired celebrity basketball player, will be playing poker again in Las Vegas. Charles had experienced trouble with a huge gambling debt of $400,000, which he said he had repaid.

Charles said that he was scheduled to play in a celebrity poker tourney. This special event was billed as the “Ante Up for Africa” function. It would be held at the 2008 World Series of Poker.

All poker players have to pay an advance of $5000 to play. If they win, they have to donate at least 50% of their loot to charity. Charles promised to donate all of his winnings. He is debt free now and wants to do something for charity.
