PRAGUE - Tennis star Rafael Nadal will take part in his first live poker tournament in December, Czech media reports said Friday, after devoting himself to the game since a knee injury last summer knocked him off court for several months . Nadal will participate in the European Poker Tour in Prague from December 8 to December 18, according to Dnes newspaper, which quoted online gambling company Pokerstars. It is the first time the Spanish star will have played “offline” in a tournament, but whether he would take part in the official competition or a separate fringe event was not specified. Nadal appears in advertising for Pokerstars and has previously participated in online events. A documentary about the current world No 2 and winner of 12 Grand Slams will also be screened at the tournament.–AFP
