It's perhaps a little presumptuous to suggest we mere mortals could help Rafa Nadal with anything. The eleven-time Grand Slam winner is a superhero. He's been a superhero for as long as anyone can remember. How could we simple citizens of Earth possibly offer aid and comfort to a man of his stature?
Well, as you might have heard, the tennis legend joined the PokerStars ranks. When it happened, even he admitted he was going to need some help. He may be the King of Clay, but he will need some help on the felt. That's where the Help Rafa campaign comes in.
PokerStars players are allowed to enter a video (in English) to email@example.com (firstname.lastname@example.org for Spanish speakers) that is up to 30 seconds long (no larger than 15MB, and be in one of the following supported file types: MP4, .AVI, .FLV, .MOV or .WMV). The aim is to offer the best advice possible for Rafa Nadal as he enters the poker world. Here are a few examples from people just like us.
If you'd like to see what all your other fellow PokerStars players are telling Rafa, head on over to the Help Rafa channel on PokerStars.tv.
You will be rewarded for your advice in a big way. Any PokerStars player who submits an eligible video will get a $22 MicroMillions main event tourney ticket. When the contest is over, PokerStars will select a grand prize winner to receive an EPT Barcelona prize package. The winner and five other players will also get a signed PokerStars chipset
Before you get started, be sure to check out all the rules and regulations on the PokerStars Rafa Nadal homepage.
Good luck, and keep that advice coming!
