Alicante Tournament aftermatch

First tablesLast weekend I took part in Alicante Go Tournament, as organizer and player. People from different cities of Spain (and London) came to play. At the beginning I suffered a lot of stress, due to some later time problems with the venue, but finally we had a smooth tournament, with a familiar mood among 36 players.

I won 3 out of 5, quite good result, beating some a priori stronger players. The tournament was also the “ambassador cup”, a korean event to decide the Spanish representative who will take part in the World Championships in Korean next November, and I’m really happy about the result: Pablo Morales, a young player from Alicante, make it with surprises and became the best Spanish in the tournament, getting the right for going to Korea (for free!). Congrats!

But the best part of all was the weather… I’ve come back to Barcelona, and it’s too cold for September!

I got a new job!

Is it me or is Barcelona a surprising city where you can get a good job in less than 2 weeks?

10 days ago I decided to look for a new job. I chose just some interesting companies, I sent my CV and… suddenly, everybody was trying to set me job interviews. It looks like my skills are highly demanded. In one week I was interviewed by 4 different companies, and got offers from all of them. So it was not easy decision.

From now on I’m a phpauction-guy. Good salary, good people, real flexible timetable, options for remote-work, and a challenging project based on a open-source product. The future is now!
