Today we’ll take a look at some of the best poker moments on YouTube, that took place in PokerStars tournaments.

  1. Ronaldo at the 2015 PCA

The poker fans are always fascinated when a celebrity gets in poker tournaments. In 2015 it was the famous soccer player Ronaldo (not Cristiano), who made a big splash. He plays heads up with Lockhart and goes all-in with suited A2, while his opponent had suited AK. Initially Ronaldo had only 27% chances of winning the pot. The flop reveals a flush draw for Lockhart but no one has a good hand yet. The turn doesn’t change anything and the cards on the table are a 9, a J, a Q and an 8. Surprisingly, the river reveals a 2 and Ronaldo wins the big pot with none other than a pair of deuces. Ronaldo is eventually out of the tournament, yet still cashes $42,000.
