Ronaldo Joins PokerStars

Tags: brazil, football, legend, pokerstars, Ronaldo Nazario, team pokerstars sportstar.
Posted on 08 April 2013 by "T".

On Friday, the world's largest poker site announced that Brazilian football legend Ronaldo Nazario had joined Rafael Nadal, Fatima Moreira (one of Holland's best known field hockey players), Marcus Hellner (cross-country skier from Sweden) and Boris Becker on its Team PokerStars SportStar. Ronaldo retired after a long and successful football career in 2011 at the age of 34. He will play under the alias "Ronaldo" on PokerStars, but he will also play live tournaments in Brazil. It will be interesting to see if he's as good at poker as football!

"Whenever I try to deliver my best in everything, in football and in life. Poker is another challenge that excites me: read the game and opponents and choose the best way to win. For some time I have been discovering the game of poker and PokerStars chosen because they meet a community passionate about the sport. Moreover, it has a great team of players," said Ronaldo in a statement.

PS is giving cards all over the world. Recently they moved to Spain, with Nadal, now their moving to Brazil with Ronaldo. Above this, they are also calling these sports lovers, not only from these countries but world wide. Although this is a retired footballer player - different bet from the one made with Nadal, still playing tennis - i guess it's a nice move, for being such a well known name, not only in Brazil but also in Europe, where he played most of the time!

FYI: Illuminati does not truly exist. forgetting that part of your post....

Contracted soccer players will not be allowed to play, let alone be a "face" of Pokerstars as this will contradict their contracts with their respective clubs, this makes Hornaldo, lol, such a good signing as all Simpsons fans will now want on board, I, for one, can not wait to meet Homer and take all his doh!

Nice tactic by Pokerstars indeed.
All these former sport stars are now playing poker...
I guess they have too much time and too much money... (wouldn´t complain if I had the same...)

Whenever a famous sports star gets sponsorship it divides the poker community. There are many who believe that giving someone who is already a multi-millionaire a six-figure bankroll of tournament buy-ins is completely unfair, especially when some of them don't even play that well (or at all).

Iam happy that they are doing this without my money!

What a player, R9 received a standing ovation from Man Utd supporters after an amazing hatrick in a champions league game at Old Trafford. A living Legend, Football misses you R9.
