Online poker: A rather glorious start for Rafael Nadal

As it was announced a few days ago, the Spanish tennis prodigy, Rafael Nadal, started on real money poker tables of Pokerstars on Sunday. He was then part of the field of some 1,842 participants of the main event of € 200 buy-in of the Spain Championship of online poker or Escoop. As a reminder, during this adventure, he took the nickname 'RAFA'. And the huge success recorded by the event has probably a link with the participation of Nadal. The prizepool gathered reach then a much larger amount than that of the proposed guarantee. It reached € 339,241.14.

Nadal has just proved that he deserves a place in the world of professional poker and he can be as successful as on tennis courts. Even if he has not reached the top spot of the podium, his career at this event was remarkable. RAFA passed without any problem the first levels of the game. He was solid despite the aggressiveness of his competitors. He even contributed to the elimination of a player and was powered of the spot of leader. Unfortunately, he has not managed to win until the end. He certainly lacks the required experience to guess all the pitfalls of poker. The tennis star abandoned then the championship after a few level. He still had the right for an award. Note that the tournament ended with the victory of "tonet_1981'.
