    Who do you think won the poker game?

    My money on who is the better poker player disregarding luck of the draw and previous experience playing the game would definitely have to go with the Joker. I don't really think i need to elaborate why.

    Also what is the welt on the side of Federer's face?:confused:

    Federer's lump has been discussed in a lot of detail in a thread somewhere but I'm not going to look it up right now.

    My money would be on Djokovic. I think he would have a more calculating mind than Nadal for something like poker.

    I think Djokovic would be the bluffer in a poker game and Nadal always has a real hand;)

    Lol, your right hahahahaha.

    I guess Nadal obviously isn't that naturally skilled at poker or any card game for that matter. I think most people would be aware if they were exposing a card at an angle an opponent could see.

    Nadal looking kinda flustered or confused in the photo.

    Djokovic seems smarter and would have a better understanding for the game.

    Whatever. That's a vast generalization... Nice attempt to cover up your prejudice with "SEEMS"...

    "Whatever?"

    Okay, what is your contribution and who am I prejudice towards because I am not a fan of either? :confused:

    A vast generalization yes, but that's my opinion and your opinion is based on mines, so what exactly is your opinion on the matter? :roll:

    The Djoker of course. He looks like he knows what he is doing moreso than Nadal.

    Ok I just watched the 2:00 minute flash video about the poker game on the monte carlo homepage.

    The peaking was for a photoshoot.

    THey were simply posing before the game and getting in character for the photographers while their picture was being taken.

    You can see during the video Djokovic intentionally does that as all the camera flashes are going off. He's simply trying to live up to his character as a willy sly invidual I think. Remember Joker is a jokester and loves to joke around and fool around alot, so pretending to peak while the camera flashes go off is him doing just that.

    Nadal can't play poker. He'd stand up and shout VAMOS everytime he got a good hand.

    Djokovic has an advantage. He only needs one joker to make a pair.

    Djoker will flip his cards 40 times before calling a bet and then Nadal game will go off.

    I wouldn't base the outcome on those pics. Judging from this clip, they were just posing. :p

    Nadal admitted he's competitve in most things he does and i wouldn't bet on Djokovic winning if this was real.:shock: From the clip you can also tell that RAFA wasn't too engaged in this pr thing. wonder if he wanted to be somewhere else or whether he just didn't like his company, Djoker. Lol.:shock:

    Well it was all for the photoshoot, of course. Whoever though differently does not know a lot about todays PR practices. Anyways Rafa & Joker go way back and are ok with eachother. Though Nadal has a hard time with so many of the mandatory things he does, since he is doing it for a while and they are pretty much abusing him but it's all for the good of the game as he says. It seems so to me just by watching him in few events he did before, and by reading his blogs.

    I've heard that Djokovic doubled his career prize money on that single evening.


    Nadal was seen looking for a cab on a rainy night ...

    And then Joker kindly offered him a ride in his private helicopter, because he had enough room for Rafa and his team. The two players exchanged tips on how to maximize effects of their games on hard/clay. Beware rest of the tennis world.

    Nadal may win because everytime he wins a hand he will jump up on the table and do a huge fist pump that will **** Djokovic off so much he wont be able to focus on his hand.

    Djokovic can flip 36 hands at first and 29 hands in second try in a row to **** of nadal, as he does with his serves. Then hit him when he least expects it and go for all in ??

    and Djokovic in returning the favor, would grab a tennis ball and bounce it on the table 37 times everytime before he bets on the flop. and if he wins a hand he'd do a Nadal butt picking impersonation.lol
