After 40 days in Las Vegas in which I’ve been playing almost every day, breathing mainly conditioned air, I really needed some weeks off. I do not mean a true holiday, but just to take a break and enjoy a normal and healthy life.
I’m living in Malta from about two years although I really like to spend part of my summer in Sicily with its beauiful sea, where my family lives and where I still have several friends. The 31th of July I celebrated my birthday, spending a wonderful day on a boat with my brother and some of my closest friends, mostly ex-classmates at high school.
At the end of the day we had a nice and quite dinner with my relatives, during which we also celebrated my mum’s retirement (a secondary school teacher). From now on she will have a lot more spare time and perhaps she’ll come to support me in one of my next live tournaments.
Since I stablished in Malta I’ve been hanging out at the beach, at the swimming pool or at the gym most of the days, and nearly every night I went out with some new friends which I just met. Beside that I didn’t miss a chance to play few online poker sessions, including a sunday MTT one.
The 20th of August I’ll end up in Barcelona to join EPT festival and play plenty of tourneys. In September, there will be loads of interesting online tournaments, in addition to some small live events like WSOP Italy, IPT Nova Gorica and PPT Malta, which I’d like to play.
In general I’m enjoying life and summer so far. Starting from EPT Barcelona I’ll be quite busy with poker, therefore having a chilled-out time right now is really important in order to have a good mindset next months, so I’ll keep doing it as much as I can.
