PokerStars: Rafael Nadal Wins First Poker Tournament

January 28, 2013

PokerStars’ Rafael Nadal has won his first online poker tournament at the other day. The Spanish tennis star played in a €10 NL Holdem event, which he won, pocketing €152.4 for his efforts. A total of 47 players bought into the event and while the achievement isn’t a particularly overwhelming one, it is a start for Nadal, who – unlike Boris Becker – never really exhibited a peculiar knack for the game until now.

Nadal has been sidelined from tennis for 8 months and he has apparently decided to invest some of his downtime into poker. Join PokerStars now if you want to play against Nadal or if you just want to watch him play.
