PokerStars' Rafa Nadal Holds BBQ and Home Game

Rafa Nadal Home Poker Game
Share this

Rafa Nadal is not only a tennis star, he's also a poker player thanks to PokerStars bringing him into the fold as one their elite Team PokerStars SportsStars. Offering a tennis match to the family and friends that gathered for fun by the pool may have been a little difficult but offering a home poker game and a barbeque was just what the doctor ordered...anyone and everyone can play poker!!!

PokerStars was there to capture the action of the poolside poker game.

The game was a single-table freezeout with one rule that applied to everyone — the first player to get knocked out of the tournament had to jump in the pool. Since Nadal won the PokerStars EPT Charity Challenge in Prague last December, he showed his poker skills by making it to the wee hours of the morning before he was knocked out. Spanish basketball captain and friend to Nadal, Juan Carlos Navarro, took home the title of the home game.
