Re: The Tennis player Rafal Nadal will be the new ambassador of PokerStars!!!

So some guy who plays tennis is the new ambassador for PokerStars?
And I'm supposed to care why?
What's this got to do with poker?
Wat?

Because he is

A. Mainstream
B. A huge international sport star
C. Endorsing poker as not only a legitimate activity but a fun way to spend your time

Here's some free advice for you. Don't ever either start a business or be involved in one at an executive level. Ever.

Look, I am a poker player and I have no interest in sports. All I'm saying is having some sports star representing PokerStars has absolutely no effect on me...none whatsoever. Obviously I'm in the minority as you have so graciously pointed out.

Nadal already losing in the 2nd round of Wimbledon.

Clearly he is broke and does not want to the media to know. So he permanently busted Wimbledon to go home and rebuild his roll online.

Just letting ppl know Pokerstars is running a promo, if you make a 30 second video giving Nadal a piece of advice, you get a $22 ticket to the micro millions main event or another equivalent buyin tourney. Seems easy enough for a free shot at 150k+

Re: The Tennis player Rafal Nadal will be the new ambassador of PokerStars!!!

Big fan of this guy. Great pickup for Stars. His loss at Wimbledon was a fluke. Already the best clay court player of all time. He's an easy pick for another 10 majors before he retires. That being said, I was happy to see Roger get another one Sunday.

I really dont know how an active tennis player can escape from the so busy schedule he has to do anything about poker.

Is Liv Boeree trolling in that advice video?

Surely she can't be that out of touch with reality.
