New Partnership Forged Between PokerStars and Ronaldo, the Football LegendPublished July 25, 2022 by Brett C
Brazilian sporting sensation Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima is now a part of the PokerStars family. This lucrative partnership focuses on Nazario's off-pitch passion, Poker. Nazario understands when to hold and fold as a skilled poker player. This time around, he's going all-in with PokerStars.
Several years ago, Ronaldo displayed his exceptional poker prowess at the tables. In 2015, he placed 26th at the PCA (PokerStars Caribbean Adventure) Main Event. This fantastic achievement was bested by another poker performance in 2016, where he placed 7th in a festival side event.
Ronaldo Set to Stream PokerStars Tourneys on Twitch
Ronaldo will be a frequent guest on Twitch, where he plans to stream PokerStars tournaments direct to fans.
"I am very excited to announce that I am joining the PokerStars family again. Since childhood, I have been a big fan of the game and look forward to getting involved in exciting projects soon. Keep an eye out for Ronaldo TV, where I will be streaming some tournaments very soon!"
The Brazilian football icon has been associated with many big names. However, after retiring in 2011 at 34 years of age, the legendary striker decided to lend his name to worthwhile causes. Poker has been his passion for many years, despite his incredible 62 goals in 98 internationals for his home country Brazil. His PokerStars ID – Ronaldo – is seen in many major tournaments where he competes alongside passionate poker players for big prize money.
Ronaldo plays live Poker, too, notably the Brazilian Series of Poker (BSOP) alongside other serious competitors.
