Rafa's International Poker Challenge

Rafa's International Poker Challenge

Tuesday, 18 March 2014

Tennis ace Rafael Nadal has a strong love of poker and this relationship will take another intimate step forward tomorrow when he takes on a slew of grinders in another Zoom Challenge.

Having successfully finished in profit during his recent challenge match against a group of Spanish players, the PokerStars pro will now face off against an international audience for one hour on Wednesday from 5:30pm New York time.

The game of choice will be 6-max Zoom NLHE but for those of you thinking it's a great chance to take some of Rafa's money, the other stipulation is that the match will take place at PokerStarsPlay.

However, despite virtual chips being up for grabs, the contest has some added spice in the form of Daniel Negreanu providing commentary. On top of that, participants can chat directly with Rafa during the challenge and ask him anything about his life on or off the felt.
