Play, watch and chat with one of the worlds top SportsStars this Wednesday, March 19th


When & Where

Wednesday, March 19 at 5:30pm ET, Rafa will be in Miami for the Sony Open. While he's there, the PokerStars SportStar will jack up his competitive juices by taking on all comers in six-max Zoom on PokerStars. You're invited to play, watch, and chat with the current No. 1 tennis player in the world.

The PokerStars webcast is following Rafa to Miami where he will battle for 5/10 play money blinds on PokerStarsPlay (the Facebook poker app). Play money players can also join the action on PokerStars.com or PokerStars.net. You can take on Rafa and ask him questions while he plays. Team PokerStars Pro Daniel Negreanu will be there to commentate on the action.

Webcast Viewing Options

PokerStars.tv on desktop and mobile/tablet devices
PokerStars Facebook App

The stakes may be play money, but there will be pressure on the champion. The webcast will be keeping track of all the hands Rafa wins. It will also keep track of all the hands the rest of the world wins after the flop. When the hour is over, PokerStars will multiply the winner's number of winning hands by $100 and give the cash to Care International.

Wasn't Care International the non-profit that FTP was matching donations to last year after that typhoon hit the Philippines?

Here's an update from their website on the work they've been doing there:




Wonder how many people'll show up to play - maybe this might a fun thing to do, especially if it's for charity ...

Looks like this promo got a nice turnout - about 1,000 people showed up, even though Rafa's only playing about a hand every 10 minutes


Guess I'll just go play at the regular tables - am a little behind schedule ...

I got to play a hand with Rafa and it was a "corker" of a hand to see.
Nice feeling to be right there and I could almost feel his pain.

Check it out.
