Rafael Nadal won the EPT Charity Challenge.

http://www.pokerstars.tv/channels/2013/12/ept-charity-c...

Tennis ace Rafa Nadal and Brazilian football legend Ronaldo met across the poker table this afternoon at the prestigious €100,000 EPT Charity Challenge – held as part of the PokerStars European Poker Tour Prague festival. They were joined by former Ukrainian footballer Andriy Shevchenko, Italian skier Alberto Tomba, Dutch Olympic field hockey player Fatima Moreira de Melo and the world’s number one poker player Daniel Negreanu.

Never thought we would win. Tongue Worship

I saw this too on another news poker site but i guess we will never know if this was for real or not considering the purpose of the event was charity.

But if you take the noble cause of the event i think in the end it counts less if the game was for real or not Smile

Many congratulations to Rafael Nadal in defeating Ronaldo in this heads up challenge. Must be great that people are willing to put money up for you to play cards. The rich get richer is correct, i'm not jealous!! Congratulations again to him

It is a big surprise in my opinion, i thought he have not so much experience with poker. But it seems that he was not only a good tennis player. Now we can wait for the first winning from Boris Becker Big Smile But he is now the new tennis Trainer...

nadal is the only athlete that won big in a tourney. There was many who was sponsored but they did not mange to win. Teddy Sheringam and others. At the end of the day it just boost their image. It make poker more and more known to many people all around the world.

Good promotion and Nadal is a good ambassador!!

You are right man.

Because it was a charity event we cannot be sure if poker pros play their best.
It is likely that they do not.
I can not find in what position Ronaldo finished. It would be nice to have more information about him as well.

Anyway may be this winning motivate Nadal to take a shot in a real tournament at the WSOP ot EPT tour. Who knows, may be in the next months we can see him playing with the sharks.

Gl all.
