The online gambling specialists at Super Casino have offered their congratulations to tennis player Rafael Nadal after news that he has won a charity poker tournament held in Prague.

Tennis World has reported that the Spanish tennis player, and current world No. 1, has won 100,000 Euros for charity in the poker tournament. Playing his first live poker tournament, Nadal beat the no.1 poker player Negreanu to receive the EPT Charity Challenge title. Other famous sports personalities such as footballers Ronaldo and Andriy Shevchenko, alongside the former Dutch field hockey player Fatima Moreira de Melo and alpine ski racer Alberto Tomber also attended the charity event.

Before playing in the tournament, Rafael Nadal spoke of how he enjoyed playing poker and discussed the similarities between tennis and poker. He said that:

“Like tennis, poker is a competition, you need to control your emotions, you need to be focussed all the time. You need to have self-control, you have to wait for your moment.”
