We got into Jaco, Costa Rica about a week ago. We're right on the water in a beach town that's loaded with restaurants, bars, and shops. The weather has been about 85-90 every day and pretty humid some days. The people all are pretty friendly though they don't all speak Spanish so there's a little bit of a language barrier. I was able to get a bank account and internet setup with the help of Poker Refugees and started playing a week ago.
On the poker front, I've run exceptionally well at 200-400 and below average at most of the other limits.. I feel like I'm playing well though there's been a couple of days where I wasn't at 100%. The games seem to run from about 10 AM - 7 PM here and I'm working on adjusting my schedule to that. I've been waking up at 6 AM every morning for some reason.
I won't be posting a whole lot of results this year, my primary goal this year was to process oriented and forget about results. That said, I know a lot of people enjoy seeing them so I will post them every now and again.
If I have some time, I will add some pictures from Costa Rica as well.
And on the VPP front, I'm at about 160K VPPs, behind pace but I should be back up to speed in a month or so.
Good luck at the tables.
