PokerStars Lands Rafael Nadal as Ambassador

Online Poker, 2012-06-21, by Ozone

PokerStars has signed one of the most visible global athletes to represent their brand. Tennis superstar Rafael Nadal was announced this week as the newest member of Team PokerStars SportStars.

Just last week, Nadal defeated world number one player Novak Djokovik in the French Open to capture his eleventh career Grand Slam title. He will continue to focus on tennis throughout the summer before dedicating more time to playing online at PokerStars in the fall.

"It's no secret that I love to compete and try my very best in everything, whether that's tennis, golf or video games," Nadal said. "When I discovered the game of poker, I chose to join PokerStars because they understand what it takes to be the best and associate themselves with the qualities of champions. I'm very happy to be working with them."

PokerStars is giving players a chance to win an all-expense paid trip to EPT Barcelona this August for providing Rafa Nadal with poker advice.

In a video, Nadal states, "Hi, I am Rafael Nadal, I just joined PokerStars and I hope to become a good player, but I need your help. If you could give me some advice, what would it be? Thank you!"

To enter the "Help Rafa" campaign, participants must send a video with their best poker advice to and include their full name and PokerStars ID. Each worthy entry will receive a $22 MicroMillions Main Event ticket. Five runners-up will receive an autographed chipset. The creator of the video that impresses Rafa the most will receive an all-expense paid trip to EPT Barcelona this August.

Visit PokerStars to participate in the Help Rafa campaign and receive a first-time deposit bonus of 100% up to $600 by using bonus code STARS600.
