WATCH: Stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Aaron Paul, Neymar Jr., Miss World Play Heads Up in New PokerStars Web Series

PokerStars has produced a new Web Series featuring six global super star celebrities playing in a set of challenging, one-on-one duels for charity, filmed and released on YouTube.

**please note some videos are unavailable for UK audience due to advertising restrictions**

The six stars are:

  • Cristiano Ronaldo (football superstar from Portugal)
  • Neymar Jr (football superstar from Brazil)
  • Aaron Paul (actor from Breaking Bad)
  • John Boyega (actor from Star Wars)
  • Sara Sampaio (Victoria’s Secret model)
  • Mireia Lalaguna Royo (Miss World)

Professional poker players, and members of Team PokerStars Pro Fatima Moreira de Melo, Vanessa Selbst, Andre Akkari, and Felipe Mojave acted as poker coaches, and were there to provide support when called upon during the matches.

Each celebrity who took part was playing for $5,000 in each match to be donated to a charity of their choice. The charities included ‘Right To Play’ and ‘Save the Children’.

Cristiano Ronaldo said:

“I love the surge of excitement you get when challenging others, which is one of the main reasons I love poker so much; it provides me with a thrill that I normally only feel on the football pitch. The duels were challenging but also really fun.”
