PokerStars' Rafa Nadal Hosts Home Game; Juan Carlos Navarro Claims Title
This past week, tennis star Rafa Nadal gathered his family and friends for a barbeque and poker home game by the pool, and it just so happened that PokerStars was there to capture the action.
The poolside game, which was a single-table freezeout, had one special rule – the first player to bust had to jump in the pool. Fortunately for Nadal, it wasn’t him. In fact, Nadal, who won the PokerStars EPT Charity Challenge in Prague last December, he lasted until the early morning hours, though he wasn’t able to capture the title. That went to his friend and Spanish basketball captain Juan Carlos Navarro.
