Hi everybody,


yesterday I did not write my daily post because I have been around the city to take a look at the Christmas' madness I have to say that Christmas is something really big here in UK... It is amazing to see all of those people invading the city centre and the shop, but at the same time it is cary as well... ahahahahahah!! Even in Italy Christmas is something important, but I never ever seen so many people going out for shopping, and I have workedin a mall, that has been the first in Italy for the number of people who went there everyday... But I have to say that the most shocking fact for me is that people were really calm and there wasn't so much mess... You know in Italy you would have been scared by the mess, the confusion and the noise that the people would have done, in fact I think that a single Italian is loud as 10 people from any other country put together, we are the best in making mess ( but maybe we are even with Spanish and Brasilian ) ahahahaha

In the end everything it seems so different and new for me and I like it, even if sometimes I miss my family and all of my friends in Italy, but I know that they are well and that my decision has been the best possibile for me...

Anyway, talking of decision, I said that by sunday I wanted to decide what to do with my poker career... Well I hoped to get the 2$ bonus from the Bankroll Builder, but unfortunately I passed the PokerBasics and Cash Game quiz ( YEAH FINALLY!!!) but I think I haven't done the things right by doing all the lessions before taking the quiz, and so I cannot recive it.  I am a donk, ahahahahaha

Anyway I am gonna ask if I can still have it in the Forum, and see what will happen.

If I manage to get the the Bankroll Builder promotion I want to try to recive the 8$, but I know it is going be difficult, so I am thinking about asking a staking on the Forum and start with the 45 people SnG. Then when I have 10$ I am gonna try with the Zoom 6max.

I want to concentre in Zoom because I really like it and I studied it before leaving the Italy, with some good results and also because the poker pro that I worked with had made is fortune by playing rush poker and I want to continue his "poker history" in some way.

By the way my girlfriend got a job today, so no poker but party

But from tomorrow I am gonna start to look for the staking and to concentrate on playing, because I am applying for any kind of jobs but without a good plan and I believe that by going on like this I will not find anything... So I am starting to plan my work career as well, to increase my possibility of doinga work that I like and that I am good for.

In the end planning a good strategy in every situation it is the best way to achieve a good result
