      Malaga is my main airport ;)

      And I'm not the only one in our office, as Gibraltar airport is not the best solution at all the times..

      Malaga and Gibraltar are about 1 to 1 and a half hours apart driving, I live in mijas costa used to play a little at sitngo in calypso but haven't played live here for about a year, I hear there is a casino opening up in gib that will have poker but know nothing else any more info on that would be great.

      I,ve posted this elswhere but I thought I'd do it again coz I want to show off,



      Just thought I would post this as a wee ego boost for myself.

      I played in the costa del sol poker festival live main event this weekend, 500euro(i won the seat in a 50E sattelite)buy in and a field of 45 or so players. after the fist day of 10 hours of play finishing at 5am saturday we had a break until 7 pm and I started on the final table of nine with 47000 chips (average 85000 or so) the tournament paid the top six I was about 7th place. after 5 and a half hours more very tough play against some very experienced scandinavian players I took first place and a cool 9400euros!!

      Apart from showing off I wanted to post this to thank the guys and coaches on poker strategy who can certainly take some credit for helping me play a far more disciplined game than normal, cheers and good luck everyone.

      By the way winning hand, my A9 os against my opponents all in with 300000 chips showing A3 os , a 9 on the flop gave me the prize

      where in calahonda? I do know calahonda so you can be brief. and do they play any omaha cash games? I stopped going to sitngo in calypso due to only small rebuY holdem tourneys and nl cash games which to me is a little boring, also no action during the day cash games started way to late for me. has this changed then?

      Well, flights from Gibraltar go only to Madrid and UK - and the connectors from London are not too good. So driving to Malaga and then flying from there is better nearly all the time.
      But the Autopista del Sol is a highway with a great sight, so it's okay ;)

      @wininagn: congratulations! :)
      Interesting to hear that a few bigger tourneys are around there.
