Flat Noise 'Helps Rafa', wins a €5,300 EPT seat
Rafa Nadal may be one of the greatest living sportsmen, a terrifying opponent to face across a net, but when it comes to poker the King of Clay is yet a rank amateur. We asked the PokerStars masses to step in and offer Rafa a helping hand during his first forays into the world of poker. You responded in your droves (the incentive of getting a free $22 tournament ticket was, of course, nothing to do with it). Songs, planes, parodies and pastiches were all used but in the end it was one man with a pram and a plan that won out.
Not only does 'Flat Noise' take the glory of helping global superstar and PokerStars ambassador Rafa Nadal but he gets a PokerStars chip set signed by the man. Oh, and the small matter of flight, accommodation and buy-in to the EPT Barcelona €5,300 main event.
Flat Noise may have taken the big one down but Rafa's thanks (and a signed top-notch chip set) also go out to fellow finalists 'notbrook', 'Aseefo', 'GigaRaizer', 'grucha888' and 'RectalRash'. You can see their videos at the PokerStars.tv 'Help Rafa' website. Separate winners will be announced for the French and Spanish markets.
