It's officially Summer in South Africa right now which means hot afrikaner girls like Candice Swanepoel (above) in bikinis.
The first WSOP event in Africa got underway yesterday with 187 players entering, including a few notables like Gus Hansen, Vanessa Rousso, a woman, who went to Duke, James Bord, James Akenhead, Beth Shak, a woman, and Maria Ho, a woman.
The field generated a prize pool of R6,053,000 which, if our math is correct from the trip one of the us took to South Africa this summer/winter, we still have no effin clue how much that is in US$.
Bluff Magazine South Africa is handling reporting duties from the event but last we checked their site was down. You can follow updates though on Twitter here.
