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……

 

Blink before you think

Hello, dear team. I am calling you team, because we are on the one and the correct part of the betting industry and it is definite on the victorious one. Sun is melting around me and the high temperature and the motivation to right something good are on my side. I was about to write about the upcoming snooker tournament which will take place soon in Sofia, with the participation of my favorite player – Ronnie O’Sullivan – ” the rocket”, but I changed my mind.

Snooker is sport of high class, I will put it in between the intellectual ones like poker and chess. I do promise you , that there will be soon a post about snooker, but the truth is that post, you are currently reading , wanted to take place and appear on the scene first . Maybe this will be for good, we will see at the end.

Usually most of the bettors, do think firstly with their hearts, which is not the right way and advise. To bet and back on all the outcomes of your favorite team, will lead you in long term to a bankruptcy. Thinking is the guiding star, that prevents us from being prisoners of our emotions. Thinking is our key to success.

What we know about blinking? Is it just a reflex of the eye, or is it is something deeper?  Blinking is maybe one of the most pretty reflexes that our bodies have. It is like the butterfly flying but multiple by two. When we combine blinking and thinking, we achieve great goals and conquer unknown horizons. Here are the steps and my point of view about these verbs and symbols of action :

  1. Why poker players wear glasses in big tournament? It is because, they are blinking a lot before they do their decision. Also they do not want their eyes to be seen from their opponents.
  2. Kasparov, Karpov, Anand, Topalov – if you had watched some chess games they played, just look into their eyes.
  3. Pirlo – the great Italian master and football magician. When he scores a penalty , just before the whistle of the referee , he is thinking and blinking as well.
  4. Blinking is that doze of reality and precise success generation point, which help us to concentrate like yoga masters. Somehow we do not realize it, but it is the inner voice for the reflex of body and mind, which clear thinking and emotional vibes , in order to take the 100 % of one special moment in our life or in a sports competition.
  5. Look at the pitchers in a single baseball game. They have a million of thought, how to throw the ball. The best of them are blinking that much , like if they were shooting with Kalashnikov, it would have been a shot of over 250 bullets per minute.
  6. In basketball, when there is a special free throw to be made and scored in the very last seconds of the game. Sometimes  players do not realize that process of blinking, but it is essential for their concentration and strategy to score into the basket.
  7. Blinking and thinking are like the two wings of a super modern airplane, like the wing of an eagle , like the hands of professional box player, who is determined to make the best hit in the last second of the round. They can not exist separately.

Sometimes is hard  to be motivated or to stay focused for a long period of time. My purpose and goal is to have you all – my readers focused in all the articles you are involved or feeling currently part of. When you have a good strategy, that can help you survive and win for a long period of time. Keep focused and let’s learn and win together 🙂

 

 

Big thanks to India

It is time to meet again today. Usually for me on Saturday is the best day to give life to ideas that chased me for a week or two. We will be speaking in the post about chess ,when and where it has been invented. It is maybe one of the most powerful and inspiring strategy games with figures. But actually it is a game of geniuses , who create magic and universal order, while calculating mathematical and statistical algorithms and formulas.

Is it chess a game of prediction and strategy only? On my humble opinion it is a complex of many things and qualities that you need to have in order to be among the best. This game would not have had its glory , if it was not invented and discovered in India ( 700 B.C.). An uncle of mine had told me that the game was invented by a man in jail, very honorable mathematician and smart guy for its time( unfortunately I do not remember his name). The game was invented , in order for prisoners to have better times and to be too bored in jail.

India is famous for many things, but we have gathered today to speak about that sport, who rules all other sports and is the origin of many war strategies and many ideas for most popular PC games. Chess also gave inspiration not only to men but also for women. There is such great magic hidden on the table of chess and with all that figures, that are symbols for every people ( friends or enemies), who we meet every day in our daily routine. Chess is a like the book of life , you can read and see everything if you could be able to see the little details and the move not only made by men and women, but by universe and the logic of mathematical secrets.

I have to tell you , that I first fell in love with chess , before any other sport. I was on the age of 7 , when my father and mother bought me the first chess. I liked to play it, to learn it and to be curios about everything connected with it, that few months after, I saved money and bough my self another 4 chess sets. I played binds with imaginable opponents, learnt new moves and tricks from books I bought and read. It was a miracle. I entered in one perfectly new word, there were no lies, no tricks and hidden thoughts . It was all about winning, losing and playing from your heart. Even I went to chess school for few months. Seven years after this situation, I felt in love the same way with basketball. I will try to explain you what chess was, is and will be for me :

  1. It is a very honest game. Like you have to solve a mathematical problem. You can not cheat, lie or make some bad tricks .
  2. Every time, when I start a new game it is like I am having a battle. And it is not battle only with my opponent, it is a battle with myself. It is a battle with my qualities, with my abilities to be good, strong and right. The battle is always not when you are moving the figure, it is when you are thinking. Because a powerful thought can change the move of the world and the Universe.
  3. When Topalov and Anand were playing game for the world title, I was proud that I am Bulgarian . Also I was proud that Veselin Topalov was playing against a man fro the land , in where the chess was invented.
  4. The magic and grandeur of a “Queen“. It is not only the group of great Freddie Mercury, I like a lot. I like this figure , because it has special powers. As in life, everything is circled and moving around a woman. If you are a nice gentleman, a smart person, or just a genius, you will always know what to do and never to lose your queen. I remember from my child hood, that the best chess players around, in order to demonstrate how good they were, they played without a queen. Queen is like the operation system of this game. Without it “King “is sad and players are depressed 🙂
  5. To play for time ( clock power) . If you are professional of too high level, than you will be able to do grand thing in zero time. Here come the number zero and the meaning of time. Biggest masters in chess , move not only figures and now a hundred, some of them thousand games, they also have time on their side.
  6. When I play chess , I feel like an emperor. Like the king of the world. I am the ruler of destiny of 16 different persons. I am a director, general, creator, artist, mathematician and first of all – human.
  7. Black and white – colors tell everything. It is like “an“and “yan“, it is day and night , it is black people and white people. It symbolizes and says everything. Just two simple colors, but when you see them on the figures dressed – black and white, and ready to play – it is harmony.

The end of this post has come. As a final words, I want to thanks to India, that the game came from there.Also I want to thank to all the chess players who inspired me during the years : Topalov, Kramnik, Alehin, Kapablanka, Anand, Karpov,Kasparov, Boby Fisher , Polgar sisters, Antoaneta Stefanova and many others. Not on the last place, I want to tank you, that you read this post.

 

 

 

Most powerful muscle

Hello , dear friends. So far you have read a lot of, I guess very interesting articles. In order to attract and have your attention to my blog, I had promised to add some new sections, and also to have few words for the one of the most powerful sports. Today we will speak about chess.

I will start from a very different angle. As the header gives you a hint, we should speak about brain and what influence it has on us, on our routine and in my case on chess, as a play and strategy. Brain is the most significant structure in our bodies , we know hardly nothing about . It is kind of “terra incognita”, as we use very small capacity of it. Geniuses of our and other times, use twice the amount , that we are used to.

Have you ever thought that the most hard thing on Earth is to train your mind well? Most of you had read a lot of smart sentences, smart books and also had followed or currently are following mental guru’s. The point, the way I am trying you to get to is that your brain has to give you an indication , that he is ready for the process to be trained and evaluated. It is all bout impulses, map of success and daily routines. For me the most important routine is reading different books, who are always provoking my mind and the “status Quo”.

Game of chess, is like all the words  I had just written. Chess is one of the most influential and powerful game for the brain. I will just mention you few chess masters and you will agree with me: Kramnik, Anand,Kasparov, Karpov ( last two had the chance and accomplished it- to beat a computer machine, just designed to play against them), Boby Fisher, Kapablanka, Veselin Topalov, Alechin and many more.

Game of chess, magic of chess is figures and numbers, and a great memory. We have to admit that Russians are among the best for all times , in this sport. I will try to explain you my point of view. In order for the brain to be “pumped up”, you just put in the role of some figure on the chess table and begin to think how to develop it.

All that our brains need is movement, dynamics and problems to be solved. Brain is like an Arabian horse. You have to treat it right , feed it , love it and keep it always in good shape.

What have you done today for your most “powerful” weapon ?
