Rafael Nadal and Ronaldo to Play Heads Up in “The Duel”

Two of the greatest sports people ever to play in their respective sports will be challenging each other in a special heads-up challenge from Pokerstars, known as “The Duel”. The battle between the two will be broadcasted from London, England and will be played on November 6th this year.


It's not the first time that either play poker, as they are both part of Pokerstars' special team pro, where famous sports people are sponsored by the world's biggest site. The two has played poker for several years and are allegedly quite good at it, which the world will get to see soon.


“It was my first live poker tournament when I last played against Ronaldo and one year later I’m more confident with my skill level. I really enjoy playing poker and the challenge of learning as quickly as possible, so I can’t wait to get back into training on my game and to play against Ronaldo,” Rafael Nadal said in a press release from Pokerstars.


“I challenged Rafa to a rematch after finding out he was preparing for another live Poker game. The last time we played together Rafa won the match and it was a lot of fun. This time it will be different, though, because I have been improving on my own strategy and will be more prepared,” Ronaldo added.
