Lol ... Rafa Nadal is going to play for Pokerstars.es. Incredible. They don't know how to get customers. In Spain a lot of players are on strike waiting for information about taxes. Pokerstars has realized there are not enough players and they are spending money with famous.

The picture and the promotion are both ridiculous. It says: "Help Nadal to learn how to play poker!". Spain is a funny country ... Aww crap!

I saw this too - such a promotional shop cashing in on Rafa who has zero poker credibility lol

Doesn't really sell imo.

PS are a behemoth right now - no one is forking with them.

Can he play poker? Or is this just a cheap shot at trying to get Spanish players to join...or tennis fans? I look forward to the first rafa knockout tournament. Dont suppose he will last as long as he will at Wimbledon!

what's so funny about it? i think it is great that riverstars a trying to do something about the whole situation- remember this situation is something they have to deal with themselves, even though there is no fault from the operators...government just kicked online gambling operators in the ass big time and now every one of them is considering what to do...

What i really dont get is that you are saying players are on strike.
Seemed very funny to me cause its a weird situation.
Who cares from the government if they ever play again or not.
They werent gaining anything before so at the very least they wont get anything now,
either.

Considering how much time it took from boris becker to get his first EPT cash, we can hope that Nadal get in the money from a big event in 5 years Big Smile

Anyway if that can make more spnaish people suscrbe to pokerstars that must be a good deal for them.

If you ask me i think this is a really good PR move made by Pokerstars.es in order to attract more spanish players on their tables!

It will be interesting to see if their strategy will actually work in the end Big Smile

I'm with you, I think is a pretty good move. Morever NADAL is famous around the world, not only in Spain.

In my case, i'm just gonna wait till nadal lost a big macht, get tilted, and I'm gonna log into PS to find him and get somo money from him. Big Smile Cool

I don't like to see his face ,every time i log in at pokerstars.. so F... this promo...

if i wanna see nice girls ,,,i dont log in at poker...

if i wanna see R .Nadal all day ..i would be homosexual ,which i 'm not...

so what's with this nadal playing poker,, who give a damn???

At least not me,,,hope he will dissapear ASAP from my login screen,,,very anoying...

Multimillionair getting contracted by pokerroom...pfff

We in holland have Fatima de moreiro melo...olympic hockey player..now teampokerstars holland for a few years..

I have followed her,, played against her ,tracked her volumes and results..

IF u ask any dutch pokerpro..how does she do as a celeberty?? all of them will say ,she has talent and is doing pretty good ...

Pfff, i say she is just another pokerprowannabee,,,with minimum volumes..( 5 touranments in 3 days, sometimes even less)

and hardly any result....so for me she is crap and Nadal will be the next...

Have seen Boris becker play also...at EPT,,,another worthless player ,,not knowing when to shove..and so timide when he shoved early pos.and lost...with crap hand in EPt...at least shove with :

A-x ,if a Ace shows on flop ,at least ur most of the time ahead and not dominated...

i think it was J-x and x was 7 or lower kicker...How is it possible u can call yourself pokerpro and that is your final hand while being ITM in an EPT-tournament????

Digusting play , by a disgusting player,don't know him in reallige tho...might be a wonderfull person

but as a pokerplayer he sucks...right now.

Please correct me with prove ,if i am wrong. Thumbs Up

I don't know if it's a good move from poker stars... Maybe some players will be attracted by this promo but IMO it'd be better to bring Kara Scott (at least she's sexy) LOL
