in my opinion it's just a marketing thing , nothing more ... I don't think he's really passionate about poker , just like many other athletes have done in the past

Yes, everything is exactly like that, this is a marketing ploy. After all, a poker room should have its own representative face. And Negreanu seems to have played his :ahhhhh:

From what I observed, the poker sites seem to be stuck in one gear when it comes to celebrity ambassadors. They feel compelled to throw money at them but their benefit in terms of attracting new players to the sites seems very limited.

And this keeps getting proven time and again. Kevin Hart, the shouty one? Ronaldo?

If they insist on taking the ambassador route then they should stick with poker players and those who value the role (rather than those pros who accepted the role and the paycheck and never seemed to promote anything)

I'd love to play poker with him. I would have a chance here if I couldn’t trick him on the football field anymore. :D

I don’t like Neymar, but I think it was a good news for us Brazilian players because with more players, more chances that poker be regulated in my country.
And unlike the other opinions, I think Neymar likes a lot of poker. It’s very common to see he hosting and playing poker tournaments.

The usual advertising contract for Neymar, what's so special about it? It would be better if the rakeback system was restored so that more players would return.

Nothing special, just a marketing ploy.As a football player he is certainly good, though without character.But in poker he is an ordinary amateur,me need to meet him at the table and get a reward for his head

Is he who plays at the tables? Because he achieved some good results this year.

And Cristiano Ronaldo? Has anyone seen him at least once playing at Pokerstars?

I think the same. It's all marketing. Poker rooms need a personality that attracts more new players

I suggest you read this article my friend.


One of the main controversies that exist when it comes to poker, often due to ignorance of the law, is about its legality.

Many consider the game, and especially cash games, ring, table game or free (where player buys chips equivalent to the amount they want to invest and, if lost, can buy more), illegal. However, poker games are totally legal in Brazil because they are not considered as gambling.

According to § 3 of Article 50 of Law 3.688/41, the "in which gain and loss depend exclusively or mainly on luck" are considered, such as casino roulettes. Regarding poker, there are studies, both national and international, that show that most of the time the winner wins the chips without showing the cards, depending solely and exclusively on his skill.

The Brazilian Confederation of Texas Hold'em recently stated that the Ministry of Sport is working to create a study group to regulate poker as a sport in Brazil; currently with more than 4 million practitioners. The sport will have all its legislation analyzed by the ministry to be recognized legally as a sport.

Jurisprudence is definitively moving to admit, irrefutably, the entrepreneurial exploitation of poker tournaments. In view of the constitutional principle of free enterprise, the wording of § 3 of Article 814 of the Civil Code, and especially the absence of a legal prohibition, it is absolutely lawful the activity of business, physical or virtual exploitation, of matches or tournaments involving mind sports, such as chess, backgammon and even poker. Let's see what Judge Sebastião de Moraes Filho, tj-MT, quoted in Civil Appeal under no. 00161747120148110015 64465/2015 on the illegality of poker games:

"In the modality that occurs, the game of poker is an activity recognized as a sport whose representation at the national level is given by the Brazilian Confederation of Texas Hold'em – CBTH, entity registered in the ministry of sport, with no way of not being rejected the initial under this argument, which is why the file must return the initial instantiation for its regular continuation. Poker cannot be considered a game of chance in the exact definition of art. 50, LCP. It's just that card games depend a lot on the player's ability."

Therefore, professional poker players, or even those friends who meet at the weekend, can continue playing Texas Hold'em guilt-free, without the risk of being charged as criminals or interrupted by any police inspection, which in this case would be more abuse of authority.

Good luck at the tables!

Yes, I’ve read many articles and I know poker here is not illegal, but only because the servers of poker rooms that operated here are hosted in another countries. There are a huge difference between been not illegal to be fully regulated and licensed by government.

It would be smarter to stick with poker players not athletes who probably never played more than 2, 3 hours session games, but it's just an opinion and it doesn't affect us which one represents this poker interfaces as long they put profitable tournaments )

The strategy of hiring sports stars to attract new poker players is repeated!

Ronaldo, Boris Becker, Rafael Nadal, Cristiano Ronaldo and now Neymar Jr.

Repeated history. I would prefer the ambassadors to be there for their achievements within the rooms and for their history in poker.

Why not both? Expand the boundaries towards new recreative and potentially more serious players and make the community stronger with pro players leveraging the brand image

I could swear he was in the past once again embassador , sport ambassador like Ronaldo , maybe my memory makes games with me . Anyway , they do not find the solution to keep Moneymaker , but they bring to their ambassadors team sports' great names or famous youtubers who are not poker pros . I do not know if this is a successfull strategy , to me it doesn't seem to be one . Recruiting twitch poker pros streamers , on the other hand , is sth I and many like , it's a good investment .
