The world's number 1 tennis player and PokerStars ambassador Rafa Nadal is currently in Monaco to compete at the ATP Monte Carlo Masters, a tournament he has was 8 times in the past. Although Rafa hasn't played his first tennis match yet, he has played some poker...
After practicing tennis for two-hours on Friday, he went to the magnificent Monte Carlo Casino to play a heads-up poker game for charity (5000 Euros was donated to Care International) against the best female poker player in the world: Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst. Check out the video below to find out who won!
Cheers yeah Nadal is getting paid for just playing winning or losing is just for show and he will get his money at the end of the day through membership, glad they are playing for charity and the video is fun to watch with a pro athlete against pro poker players. Both pros! Different fields cheers!
Vanessa was always going to be hard to beat, i just wish we could see more of this video to gauge what kind of poker player Rafael Nadal is. Nice donation for the charity though so well done to the two of them
He's always smilling, i guess it should be easy to read him at a poker table. But he shouldn't be playing always this way, as PS wants him to enter other type of events and i'm sure they want him to make a good figure, at least to hold on for a while and not being one of the first to be put away.
