If I ever get to the french riviera again the last thing I would want to do is playing some cards.
Im not sure, but Nadal probably lives in Monaco for tax reasons as many other tennis pro, amiright? There you go, now its totally makes sense to calculate odds in a dark room instead going outside to bath in the sun.
He could do it every other day.

Brazilian football legend Fat Ronaldo is playing cards too?
I wonder how many zeroes has he lost at the poker tables in Madrid and Italy when he played there.

Since they have so much money, they could live in their home country and support the economy of this country and not just live in a tax haven.

This should be very interesting to watch and i am looking forward to reading about the outcome. Rafael Nadal seems to know his way around a poker table but playing against Vanessa will be very difficult

Is Nadal opted in on sharkscope? I wonder what his graph would look like... I can't imagine he's a winning player, considering the professionals he's up against (or is this match an exception?).

Against Selbst, he could win the odd match, but he must be a huge underdog in this one.

It seems he exclusively plays cash game... unless he plays under a different screen name... but I doubt that.

The only recorded tournament for him is the Sunday Storm a couple of years ago... He didn't cash.

For reference, I'll make a thread with a bunch of celeb's poker names - could be interesting to some people...

If it waa tennis Nadal would probably win 2-0 and 6-0 in each set I presume anyway this will be a nice match up by looking how nadal play against a professional poker play. A must watch encounter so do not miss it. As usual i will be supporting the underdog that is Nadal here, which is rare Big Smile Cheers thanks for the news!

I don't think that rafa nadal will win against selbst. It's true that he won a charity tournament (he just got lucky) but this time it's HU vs the best female player
So i don't think that he will get crushed by selbst, a high stake player vs a recreational nadal

i hope Nadal crushes her but i can't see it happening as she's probably a bit too good for him.
Selbst is one of those players i just don't like (although she will not be bothered about that Smile )
gl Rafa Thumbs Up

If Nadal will be getting good cards and Selbst will make a ridiculous blowup (like she sometimes does), he can have some chances.

If we analyse this heads up carefully we easily realise Selbst has got all the odds on her side. I think everything will be decided either too quick for her or in any lack of concentration Nadal can use in his favour against her. But if I would bet in one of them it would for sure be on her.

A lawyer and a ping pong players heads up in poker....! I'll go with the lawyer in this one... Thumbs Up

One nice thing about this is that there will be no moaning, groaning, squealing, and grunting like someone's trying to stick tennis balls up the players' butts... Confused

Tennis is a great sport,...but I just CAN'T handle all the sound effects coming from the court...! Aww crap!

Nadal seems to be a really cool customer at the table. I reckon he would be able to do well as a semi-pro once he loses it on the court.

Genuinely nice dude too - hope he skelps Selbst!

Yes she is, when I saw her first time, I thought, that she seems like a lesbian.

And then I heard somewhere that she really is. Big Smile
