With 11 Grand Slam titles and over $50 million in winnings, there is no doubting Rafael Nadal's ability on the tennis court. But put him at the virtual felt and the newest member of the impressive Team PokerStars Pro roster will be the first to admit that he needs to work on his game. You can help.
The 26-year old has spent years perfecting his tennis game to become the world number one and he is now attempting to do the same on the world's biggest online poker site, PokerStars; but he needs your help. Unlike in the tennis arena, Nadal has never won a poker tournament but with your help we have no doubt in our mind that he can become a winning player.
In order to help Nadal become as great at poker as he is at tennis, PokerStars has asked for you to send in a video clip showing your best poker tips. The creator of the best overall video will be rewarded with a fantastic package to the opening stop on this season's European Poker Tour in Barcelona! Each package consists of:
- €5,300 buy-in to EPT Barcelona (Aug. 19 through 25)
- Eight nights accommodation in a 4-star hotel
- €1,500 spending money
Last season's EPT Barcelona Main Event attracted 811 players who helped create a prize pool of €4,055,000. The eventual winner was Michael Schleich of Germany, who returned home with the coveted EPT trophy, an exclusive Shamballa bracelet and €850,000 in prize money. Will it be you who PokerNews is reporting on this time around?
In addition to this amazing EPT package, the overall winner will receive a custom chip set that has been personally signed by Nadal, as will five runners-up, plus every single person who sends in a video tip will be rewarded with a ticket to the upcoming MicroMillions II Main Event, worth $22.

- Make a video highlighting your best piece of poker advice for Nadal.
