Greetings from Barcelona.

It was very hot here yesterday, about 27C. I haven't really been on a sunshine holiday for years now. The whole experience of arriving in Spain, going through the airport, travelling to the hotel, etc really felt like the tacky package deal holidays I used to go on as a kid. Of course, I'm not here for a break. There is a tournament at Casino de Barcelona starting in 3 hours + change.

So, I'm sat here in my hotel room in limbo really. There isn't much time to go out and see anything plus I haven't eaten yet and I'm starving! The restaurant opens in 40 mins, until then I will chew on the desk in my room.

A 4pm tournament start time is a little unusual. I note on the schedule the heads-up draw takes place at 9pm. It'll be interesting to see how that goes, assuming I'm still in after 5 hours, that is! I'd really like to cash in this one. I'd like to cash in every one, but I don't often play buy-ins that are €1000+. It would be great to leave the sunshine for rainy England tomorrow with a few extra Euros in my pocket.

Enjoy your weekends.
