Brazilian football legend Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima and 14-time Grand Slam winner Rafa Nadal will face each other at the poker table in a heads-up battle named ‘The Duel' on November 6th in London (will be broadcasted here on Bankrollmob).

Last time the two PokerStars sports stars and ambassadors clashed was in a charity event at EPT Prague in December. Rafa eventually won that tournament and €100,000 was raised for charity.

Now, in other to prepare for the heads-up battle against Ronaldo, Rafa will take on all-comers in a play money six-max Zoom poker session on PokerStars this evening. Throughout the session viewers can ask questions using the #AskRafa hashtag. Live stream below:

Will Rafael Nadal not show up against Ronaldo as Gus Hansen the furious Danish pro did agains Viktor isildur Bloom last week on Fulltilt online? Probably Ronaldo is playing poker for longer time so his chance to win seems to be a bit bigger.

I look forward to this and i will definitely be tuning in for it. Rafael Nadal seems to be playing a lot of poker lately and i would make him favourite to beat Ronaldo, good luck to them both

It was becoming hard to see more than the first six minutes of play of Rafael Nadal, he was playing like if didn't have a clue about what to do. Now, we know he's sponsored by PS, could that be made intentionaly so that those who play something of this game feel like they want to play against Rafa and win big? Can that be the message of this video? If not, they just showed an awful player who they pay to play.
