Something to think about

I had some thoughts recently, regarding chess and how chess players turn into genius or just best gamblers. Why not onto teachers, which can point is the right way how to think  in a non standard manner? Because, the main clash when we speak about betting is ” Who is smarter? “.

Bookies, do have a huge staff of employments, who are monitoring every single step you take. But I have started which chess players ,as they have in their heads many scenarios and immense strategies. Strategy is not always about winning, it is mainly defending and turning your disadvantages onto great pluses. You may think, that I am writing some “smart” sentences just in order to have a content for this post. Here is the right way to give and example or just few of them:

  1. When I was a little kid i had just one passion – chess. When I was at the age of 4, my father learned me the most important steps in chess. With every cent I had left, I had saved it and bought to myself 7 different set of chess. I started to read in few years and got hypnotized from the images of such geniuses as : Alehin, Capablanka, Bobby Fisher , Karpov and Kasparov ( The POlgar sisters and many more others). It was all about one dess of 64 squares , 32 figures and great fight of minds. All the schemes and movements have been played in your head for thousands of times. This was not just a world, this was an universe of great opportunities and challenges and surely  I got impressed and challenged for whole my life. These first steps in chess playing and realizing the way how the “system” works, helped me a lot in the world of betting.
  2. Anatoly Karpov vs computers– do you think that is easy to beat a computer? Do you know what is the capacity of PC memory versus the mind of a human? We are like a little babies when it comes to a comparison on those two features with personal computers. Them man, the legend , the minds or the genius – all these words are just vague description of the magnificence of one man. A Russian chess player, which made all the machines and Pc’s look pity. Actually this guy showed to the world that nothing is impossible.

At the end of the day or the post, the main thing and point is , that if you do not feel luck and winning enough in world of sports betting, you have to change your way of thinking. You have to find a key in your internal universe and  go to see what is behind unknown door. If you change your priority sooner, there will be no secret or hidden way in the world of sports predicting and wining. Thinks and put yourself in deep action. It is your move now……

 

Pending winnings

Good morning ,dear fans. Start of the weekend is a very special time always. Not because it is a time for rest after a hard week, but it is time for big predictions, great emotions and valuable winnings. Weekend is the time, when you sit alone look at the stats and the games, and figure out for yourself where the exact bet placed, can turn onto winning one.bet365.com

Today I had spotted, two very special games. One from them is from Italy and the other one is from Germany. One is a definite derby, the other is just a game where many value bets can be made. It is good , when you see something that you are convinced in . Good punters make winning from small details. Let’s check the special details, I have monitored:

  1. Napoli – Roma : I will start this analysis with two names Milik and Sallah. First can score from any position, second is a magnificent player, about whom Fiorentina and Chelsea regret that they have not kept it in their squads. Both teams are chasing Juventus, which is in a perfect strike of wins and Higuain found his perfect place in Turin. Both teams to score and over 2,5 goals in the match are the first spotted markets. I think that Napoli will win with 2-1 result at the end of the game. So this gives a high way to Asian Handicap – 0,5 , which is 1.82 at bet 3,65 and European handicap -1 for draw 3,75 at the same bookmaker. When such derby is about to come, it is usual and common thing to do, taking the over line for cards ( over 5,5 cards – 1,66 you know where). Last prediction about this game – over 10,5 corners in the game ( odds is 2 at bet365.com. )
  2. Werder Bremen – Bayer Leverkusen : when you see this game, the first question that comes is how many goals will we see? Would it be 4 or 5. I guess the lowest number is 4. Leverkusen are somehow of Arsenal in Germany. They play very nice football and scoring goals is their specialty. Both teams have any injured players, but the level in top 5 European countries is that high, that anyone from the bench can replace the main players with an ease. I suggest you to take here with half of your stake the combo pick over corners in the game and over goals which as an odds combination in bet 365 will give you ( 1,53 * 1,83 = 2,81 ( over 2,5 goals and over 9,5 corners)). I advise you to take also the market result/number of goals – Bayer Leverkusen and over 2,5 goals – 2,37. Bayer Leverkusen team corners over 5,5 – 1,83 , you should take it with 100 % of your stake, even with more. Time of first corner : before 9th minute – 1,83. All odds are gives as per bet365.com sports book. Last two picks from this match : goal before 25th minute and goal after 76th minute- both markets are with equal odds -1,83.

Wish you all to have a pleasant winning Saturday . We all love to watch and bet on football, this is our passion and our devoted love for weekend and beer 🙂 If you have something more to add or want to advertise on my blog, please feel free to contact me – info@toppix12fix.com  Have a good weekend and will see very soon 🙂

 

End of the season

Hello, dear friends. It has been a long time since my last post. It is the end of the football season in all the top 4 European leagues and I feel obliged , I have to say few words about the Champions an the runners up.

As bettors and fans, most of us , had watched all of the games, been to some of the stadiums and made a lot of bet on all popular and not that popular markets. We have been in all the epicenter and now we are expecting Euro 2016 Finals in France. But lets try to stick to the main line of the post – the top 4 European countries and their Football Championships:

 

  1. England – actually , I like most watching football from Italy , but this season was a great surprise what have happened there on the Albion. One team, who was close to relegation , played several seasons ago in the Championship, had pointed out and left all the competition far behind and far away. Yes , I am talking about Leicester , the foxes . Maybe there is one cunning fox- Claudio Ranieri. He made in Italian way, he created and inspired an army of humble players, who became stars and heroes. Premier League will never be the same 🙂
  2. Italy – “Old segnora” and new title. Napoli was the team , who was the main pretender, but unfortunately the short bench was the losing card for the coach – Maurizio Sarri. Roma were very close and the magic of Toti and his experience, will leave a remarkable sings in our memory. I have to say few words also for one player of the rivals of the ” wolves” – the eagles , Lazio. Miro Close played yesterday his last game and had scored a penalty as well. He is a hero, not just because he is a humble warrior, who was the World record for the most scored goals in World Championships player. He is a hero, because he is a good man, a decent member of the ” old school” players , who never felt or behaved like stars, but whom people and fans will love till the end of their lives.
  3. Spain – a classic clash, became a fight between 3 teams – Barcelona, Real Madrid and Athletico Madrid. Zinedine Zidane had to be earlier put as a coach of the team, but however the title is for Barca and the other two will play in MIlano for the Champions League trophy. Spanish Championship is probably the strongest one in Europe for the last 10 years. Just look what is happening in Europa League tournament, Sevilla are again at the final, but probably Liverpool will “steal” the trophy from them..
  4. Germany –  Bayern , Dortmund and all the rest. When you see the standing after the last games, you fully realize the meaning of my words. Competition is the last word we connect with the Bundesliga. I want to say some words about the Euro games of both teams. The boys of Guardiola, had played a magnificent second game against Juventus, but the same magic and good luck did not appear in the game with the boys of “El Cholo”. The second game of Dortmund against Liverpool, reminded me of the final which LIverpool had against MIlan. They were losing 3-0 and the half time, 3-3 at the final whistle and everyone remembers the penalties and the missed one by Sheva. There is some great atmosphere on Anfield , some magic and fortune that helps the Liverpool team always. Not on the last place, Klopp is the man that can motivates and ant to become a spaceman and  an invader.

Whish you all a pleasant day. For those who have predicted the champions on the outright betting – bravo , lads. For the other- we all are learning from every single game. And learning not only how to become better tipsters and bettor, but also hot to become better sportsmen and people. Be good and be good persons as well 🙂

 

Passion + warm people = Spain

I love when it is weekend time. I love to see the sun and listen to unbelievable music. It is just harmony to have a trance or just chill out set to relax you down and to be able to sort out all your ideas, that you had during the hard working week. It is something very special and thrilling when you write about countries and people that you love. If some or most of you remember , I had written a month ago article about Japan , which was named : ” Japan – love from first sight”. Today I have prepared for you another interesting story.

The article that is currently crawling  through my fingers is about Spain. First of all, when you like or fill interested by someone or something, especially when it is about a country, you listen very carefully to the language people speak. As per me and my relatives and friends there are two languages that are like love songs, like whisper of an angel, like a softly breeze in the hair of the most beloved woman. They are: Spanish and Italian languages.

When I was for my first and unfortunately till now for the last time in Spain, I was in Madrid and was more then astonished by the way people smile and speak this blessed by God language. The time I was there , was when Inter won Champions League title against Bayern Munich at Santiago Bernabeu. I celebrated with Italian fans all night, it was a dream come through . In the center of Madrid we were singing songs, drinking beers ,listening to Spanish and Italian speech. It was a miracle.

Maybe till now , you will find this post a little bit romantic or poetic. Yes, we want to discuss, write and read about sports, but as most of you had seen and written the heading of this post, this will be a mixture between passion and warm, good people which lead and led Spain to many wins in different sports. I will continue later with the names of best Spanish sports men , who inspired and currently inspire me and my close friends. When you have such type of blood, which is mainly consisting of emotions and great will to have the God Nike on your side, nothing can stop you.

Win , victory , title, medals – all these word of success belong to that soldiers of great will, who are ready to die on the pitch, court, basketball field on each game they do present or participate. These proud people, had inspired a lot of people and gave good lesson to all of us, how to be not only strong and constant in all our daily routine, but also showed as how to be good people as well. In the next lines , I will try to mention all the sports man and trainers, who had left a big trace in my heart and soul. I would like to apologize if I miss someone, but this will be because, I am very emotional, even now  when I am reading this post :

  1. Raul – the magic #7 from Real Madrid – the icon. Maybe on the modest and at the same time one of the most talented football players of this century. Just remember his smile and his great will to score and participate in every stage of the game. One grown up boy , who has the charm and the heart not to be only good football player, but even a perfect trainer , after he finishes with his career.
  2. Iker Casillas – Saint Iker. He is more then the best goal keeper in the world. He led Spain and Real Madrid to great success , but also he led millions of fans as a star, which never stopped to shine brighter and brighter. He had and is having reflexes of a cat, no not of a cat – of a tiger. He gave a perfect example to all children , that if you are believing and fighting for your dreams, one day they come true.
  3. Rafa Nadal – there are no impossible balls for him, to play and to return. Nowadays he is not in his perfect shape, but he is a symbol of great will, passion and devotion on the tennis court.
  4. Pau Gasol – the leader not only of Spanish national team but in each teams he plays in NBA.  He reminds me of Michael Jordan and Larry Bird. All three of them are lions, who have fear from no one and can score, no matter how many defenders they had against them. Congratulations Pau, your heart is like of an army of a hundred soldiers, ready to die every single moment on the basketball field, for their country and for their team mates. Bravo !!!
  5. Mark  Gasol – the little brother ot Pau, but the one who learned very fast English in US and deserved the respect of all trainers and players, with his brilliant rebounds, with his smile and his devotion to shine even brighter then his most popular brother.
  6. Gerard Pique – not only one of the best defenders. He is that intelligent, that he could play at least 10 other sports. When you see him smiling on the football playground, nothing good will happen. On my opinion he could be better in basketball, volleyball and intellectual sports as chess .
  7. Fernando Alonso – man of steel and grandeur. I have 3 favorite pilots in Formula 1 : Sena, Alonso and Schumacher.
  8. Vicente del Bosque – the gentleman who created miracles and brought back the smiles to the faces of Real Madrid players and created one of the best national teams for the last 20 years. Great mind and man who has strategy for everything.
  9. Xavi Ernandez – the magician , who invented the passes, the speed and all the other pieces of marvel and breath taking moment. He is one of a kind. Let’s say he was the heart of Barcelona and the Spanish national team. I have to admit that , I am Real Madrid fan, but Xavi is one of the players , that I admire most and do like how he is playing and what good man he is.
  10. Ruy Lopez de Segura – one of the best Spanich chess players. When I trained chess , I heard his name a lot . Most of you had hear his just as Ruy Lopez .

It is a very long post by now, I guess you all stayed till the end. Spain is a wonderful country, with wonderful people and many successive sports men and women. Just go there if you have a chance and you will see if my words came from the heart.
