2012 WSOP Africa ScheduleThe WSOP Africa is set to begin in just under 10 hours; it offers 6 WSOP rings in 6 days.

The World Series of Poker Africa 2012 will be running from 21 – 26 February at the Emerald Resort & Casino in Johannesburg, South Africa and will be hosted by Scotty 'The Prince' Nguyen.

Scotty Nguyen will be visiting South Africa for his first time and appeared excited in a recent interview with Sport24.co.za where he was quoted saying “You know, the Prince has been all over the world baby! Australia, Asia, Europe, but this is my first time going to South Africa and I’m excited to come and share this great game we love with the players.

“(I’m looking forward to) getting to know them and having a good time – just make sure the people at the Emerald protect me from any lions and I promise you we’ll have a lot of fun baby!”

The 2012 WSOP Africa will consist of 6 ring events including the $3,300 buy-in main event, which will begin on the 24th February. A charity event and a ladies tournament will also be held but no rings will be awarded for those events, the ladies event will offer a WSOP Circuit ladies pendant instead.

The inaugural 2011 WSOP Africa saw 188 entrants in the main event which was won by Warren Zackey ($222,477).
