Watch Rafa take on Ronaldo in The Duel!

When it comes to a contest, Rafa Nadal is used to taking on one opponent at a time. But when he faces Ronaldo on November 6 in a heads-up duel, he won’t have his years of tennis experience to draw upon - he’ll be facing him at the poker table using all the skills he’s learned since starting on his poker journey.

You can join Rafa as he trains for his match, follow his progress with video clips, ask him questions, watch live and even take him on yourself at poker!

Rafa vs The World

In preparation for his match with Ronaldo, Rafa will be taking on a team of players from around the world at the 5/10 Play Money heads-up Zoom tables, and you can be on that team!

Join the ‘Rafa vs The World’ Zoom table on September 22 at 19:00 CET, and on October 14 at 20:00 CET, and you could find yourself heads-up with one of the world’s greatest competitors. Rafa will play for an hour on each occasion, and for every hand won by the winning team PokerStars will donate $50 to the charity Care International.

During these sessions you’ll be able to put your questions to Rafa by tweeting your message using #askrafa.
