Rafael Nadal: The former tennis-man N°1 signed his first success in poker

Six months after his entry into the professional arena of online poker, Rafael Nadal has just signed his first victory in this discipline. It was during a NLHE tournament of € 10 on the Spanish version of Pokerstars. Admittedly, he pocketed only a gain of € 152, far away from large sums played by players like Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey and Viktor Blom, but for a 180 ° reversal of the player, from tennis courts to the green carpet, the achievement of this ancient No. 1 in the ATP rankings, deserved to be highlighted. During this tournament, he faced with 47 players as De Raul of Granada, Alicante Sergi ... and was able to end the game in 2 hours of play.

It was therefore necessary for this player who won seven times the tournament of Roland Garros and dozens of other Grand Slam titles, now aged 26, to pass through 19 tournaments and make a deficit of € 400 before finding the path to victory. With this success, he brings his balance to a little less than € 250 of loss and the road to the positive balance is certainly not very far. As a reminder, the arrival of Rafa in the middle of online poker coincided with in one hand on his absence on tennis courts due to injury and secondly by the legalization of online poker on the Spanish market. Indeed, who could better serve as bearer to a poker room in this country than Nadal?
