Rafael Nadal Will Take on THE WORLD in a Charity Poker Tournament


Last November, we wrote about Rafael Nadal trying his hand in his first live poker tournament—an event he would go on to win. Seems the top-ranked tennis superstar is so confident in his second career that he’s ready to challenge the world.

For an hour on Wednesday, March 19, at 5:30 ET, anyone can log-on and play poker against Nadal. The Spaniard will get a point for every hand he wins, while “the world” will notch the score if Nadal loses. The play-money tournament is all in good fun and benefits a good cause, as event sponsor PokerStars will donate $100 per winning hand by the higher-scoring side to Care International.

Nadal will be playing out of Miami, where he’s set to compete, for real money, in the Sony Open this weekend.
