The $25,500 MILLIONS World Resumes with 183 Players Returning | 2018 Caribbean Poker Party

Many of the greats in the game will return to their seats on moving day of the $25,500 MILLIONS World. The partypoker Caribbean Poker Party is being hosted at the Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas this year and all of the best players in the world have made the trek to take part in some spectacular poker tournaments.

There will be 183 players returning after two starting flights but that number is expected to grow with late registration still open for a few hours. There have been a total of 282 entries thus far but with a $10 million guaranteed prizepool, there is still a bit of work to do to reach the goal of 400 entries. The staff still remains confident though as everyone will be given the opportunity of two entries before late registration is closed today.

The heroic moments of African soldiers who fought in World War I

One of the largest and deadliest conflicts in history is the first World War which was fought between 1914 and 1918. With major European superpowers together with their allied non-European forces fighting against each other for supremacy, the war left nothing but emotional and physical ravaging damages in its aftermath.

Millions of military personnel, including nearly two million Africans, were recruited by these superpowers and their allies to fight in the war. Though largely forced into recruitment, it is disappointing that most of the efforts of these African soldiers have not received much recognition globally.

As the world commemorates Armistice Day, which remembers the end of World War I 100 years on, here are the gallant moments of African soldiers who fought in the…

Zambia says World War I ended on Nov 25 — Quartz Africa

As the world remembers the end of the First World War, Zambia is fighting to ensure that its role in the war is remembered. World leaders gathered in Paris on Nov. 11, Armistice Day, to honor the war’s fallen soldiers.

Zambia, however, wants to change the narrative and location of these commemorations. On Nov. 25, Zambia’s tourism agency plans to hold a commemoration of its own in Mbala, in the northeast of the country, close to the Tanzanian border.

The government also hopes attention to the region will “unlock the tourism and investment potential of Northern province.” For now, a monument of stacked rocks with a plaque in the middle of a traffic roundabout marks the spot where the Great War ended.

“It gives us an opportunity to tell our story, the forgotten story, that we played a…

Welcome Back to Day 1b of the $25,500 MILLIONS World | 2018 Caribbean Poker Party

After a low-key opening day at the 2018 Caribbean Poker Party, things are about to ramp up today. There will be multiple events on the schedule as players pack into the convention center at the Baha Mar Resort in the Bahamas. While the $5,300 Main Event gets underway today, the focus here will be on Day 1b of the $25,500 MILLIONS World.

With an ambitious $10 million guaranteed prizepool, there is plenty of money up for grabs that will attract some of the best players from all around the world. There were a total of 77 entries on Day 1a and just 49 players making it through to Day 2. A total of 400 entries are needed to reach the guarantee and that leaves a lot of room for players who may not usually jump into a such a steep High Roller event.

It was a strong first day for the partypoker pros…
