World Cup qualifiers madness

Good morning, my friends. I am glad that you have chosen my blog among all the other available in the net ( over 1 million I guess :)))). There is something very special in Sunday’s , usually the best derbies in Italy and UK are payed on these days. Also I have integrated in my mind , the program that Sunday suspense for football is much more intrigue then the ones we have for the midweek derbies ….

So as it is a Sunday, special day but mainly with World Cup qualifiers games , I have brought to your attention two very interesting matches.  Usually when we speak about qualification games, we count on stats and the experience and the momentum form of the teams. Also the home scene advantage  , should be taken … Let’s check the games I have for you today :

  1.  Serbia- Austria : from first sight it looks like a draw game with not over 2,5 goals . Both teams now each other very well and the competition for the top places in this group will be among them and the brave team of Wales.  All the odds , I should give you will be according to bet365.com sports book. Both team will score – 1,95 and over 9,5 corners in the game 1.9.  Draw no bet for Austria – 2,38 ( in my humble opinion the game will end 1-1 or 2-2).  Any time goal scorers – Arnautovich at 4 and Alaba at 4,33. Let me introduce you some Asian lines from bet365 about this games :  Austria + 0,25 ( 0 , 0,5 ) at 1,975 , over 0,75 goals in the first half – 1,7 and first half over 4,5 corners ( asian line) – 1,975. To bet on corners is a very interesting challenge . Usually people who are not totally aware of it, think that corners is for gambling purpose only. The truth is , that is one of the favorite markets for bookies and for punters. Good and very open games are evaluated will goals and corners. When we have a rough player or  harsh players, then the lines for cards appear with its strong value. In this game I do not expect many yellow cards to be shown. If you find the line for yellow card in your favorite bookmakers, then I advise you to take it with half of your regular stake.
  2. Iceland – Turkey : Croatia is the leader and favorite in this group. The team of Turkey is hard to be beaten , but I think today this will happen. Everyone remembers the games Iceland had played, even that 2-5 with France, they had humiliated the UK team and also were and are known with their passionate fans. 10% of the 300 k population of that incredible Iceland country were on the European Championship  in France. When those two team are paying , the advantage is on the home squad. I expect win for the home team and over 2,5 goals in the game. Over 8,5 corners in the game also deserve your attention and a 100 % of your stake ratio. Both teams to score – yes is with 1,75 rate at bet365.com

This is my analysis for today and for the games , I had prepared for you. And do not forget the most important thing is to bet smart. Smart means, that if you have today 1000 $ in your account, not to lose all of them and tomorrow morning to be in a wonder where from to take money for another bets. Let’s watch the games tonight and count the winning tips and predictions tomorrow. Wish you well and wish you rich winnings 🙂

 

 

One totally crazy game…

Good day  , dear friends. Yesterday night we saw several nice games from the Champions League elimination round, one phase before the true games for entering the Group stage. One of them was the match between Crvena Zvezda – Ludogoretz. A game that had everything in it.

First game in Razgrad ended 2-2 and no one convinced the visiting squad to be the winner after the second game, which has been expected to be played against 50 000 fanatic fans of the Serbian team. Mala Marakana expected this game for a days now. Even some of the home team Ultras went in front of the hotel of the Bulgarians and flamed piro effect, which was very cowardice and mousy thing to do. They wanted to scared the “eagles”, but …..

I am actually fan of Levski Sofia, this is my team and this is where my heart belongs to. Levski are in crisis, not capable to overcome Maribor from Slovenia after two draw games. But we are here today to speak about Ludogoretz. I am not quite sure how many people have believed in a miracle in Serbia to happen last night. The results from previous game had put Serbians as favorite, because of their crazy and devoted fans. If you want to pass to the next level , you will be needing a result like 3-3 or to win by a goal difference. No Bulgarian team has been achieved this in the previous match-ups in such phases in Euro Football Competitions. But traditions are always to be broken in some way and in some time ….

Most of us, you, me , fans, people who regularly visit the stadiums, they are there for the game to see passion, suspense and many goals. All of you perfectly know what is the feeling , when your favorite teams scores, scores and early opener and you start to scream and sing and all the crowd is totally mad, full delirium… This is is what happened yesterday night, Zvezda scored the first goal, and this was it… Vlado Stoyanov made a mistake after the long shot, but he is human. I respect that man a lot, he saved a penalty from Ronaldo , not only for his team- Ludogoretz , but also in friendly game we played and we had won against Portugal , earlier this year. He is not just a goal keeper, he is a hero and great motivator. He had no chance to save the penalty for the equalizer 2-2 at the beginning of the second half, but he did many brilliant saves ever after.

Bulgarian team, played the game in the best technical and pragmatical way. The players of  Ludogoretz waited patiently to hit the opponent in fast and killing counter-attacks. This was how the 2 goals in the extra time were scored. There is one man  , who made the miracle a fact and a story to tell in the upcoming months. He is a Brazilain and his name is Wanderson. He scored 3 goals and killed the intrigue in extra time. He is very fast and I thin many good games, and many goals are up front to come…

I have to say good words for Zvezda players , they also played good game. It is one of the best games,   I have seen recently. We are proud of you Bulgrian heroes, not because you are passing the next round, it is because of the critics , you had. All which did not believe in the final win, are not very happy and dream big, maybe we will see againn Real Madrid or Barcelona in Sofia, only Fortune can tell us.

 

 

 

 

Poker place/face

Good day , if you may my fellows.  I see the sun is taking his path through the clouds and maybe gives me a sign, to start to create. If this is your first time on my blog, you may think that writing is a very easy process. You stay in front of the desktop and start to… Stop,stop – I do not want to lose you in the beginning of this article.

The birth of idea, of this story was one week ago, when I saw a black cat crossing my way, when I was turning back home from the gym. I asked myself, how come that intelligent beings as humans, can be so superstitious. Is it about the belief in good and bad luck? Is it about the will to discover and have faith in some mysteries and hardly to be explained matters of life and death? Or we want to disguise our dreams that way, that only other common people to us, to recognize and feel it ?

One of the games with more or most superstitions , which are implemented in it, is poker. Maybe the leadership can be taken from time to time by casino, but in our case , the main focus is on the game with cards. Poker has a deep magic, if you are a creator , author, mathematician , man of arts, photographer, sport guy or a woman, you will see yourself in simple situations of this game, or when you watch some big tournament on the TV, you will see some of the best players in the world, do have resemblance with you. Poker stages , poker scenes are kind of gladiator battles in the Colloseo. You are fighting for the life of your dream, and you are trying to convince all the other opponents on the table that your brain is sharper, your reactions and reflexes are moreover like of a tiger, than of a human being. You are also fighting with your superstitions all of the time.

I ask myself from time to time, am I superstitious that much to be a great poker player? I am , but playing poker is not my best side. Yes, I can give you betting advice, I can tell you how to win on roulette and slots, but the big love magic between me and poker, just had not happened by this moment 🙂 I like all of the aspects of the game, I had played with friends and online of poker tables and tourneys,but the species where not in my heart. I had also worked in one of the most popular poker rooms in the world for a year. I am in the game, but the game is not in me. Something had to be changed, something which will destroy my images about that game, and that will make me shiver just when I think of a man holding 2 cards on the river calling in Texas Hold ‘Em madness….

It was one of those normal and too routine days, when nothing happened – going to work, meeting the same people, drinking beer in the same pubs, going to another bars  etc. Even if I was searching for an adventure, I could not bear or afford to see it, because I was blinded by the grey daily routine picture . I came to home and opened  my e-mail. There was a notification by  stranger, he was asking me to attend some special place with him. Risk is in my soul, I accepted.

Do you know , that one of the best decisions in our lives have been taken spontaneously ? Best choices are made when the brain is having interference for a 0.05 % of its capacity. There is a moment when instincts, senses and brain power act like  super weapon- laser that can hit from any distance.

We took the plane several days after the mystic letter in my mail box. My new friend explained me all and was wanting me to participate in action that was about to took pace in the last 48 hours. I had a special role and just keep patience to learn and see what it was.  Maybe special roles, open and provoke special senses and emotions ?

We landed in some island. I was kindly asked to have a blindfold .. During the upcoming 48 hours, I was about to be this way because it was about to be a great poker tournament between very powerful and famous men and women from all around the globe, who would not have wanted their eyes to be seen by  stranger. My friend convinced them ,that I will only present there with a blindfold all the time, the competition was held. I was shaking, trembling and wanting all this to start . Will my attitude and perception for poker change upside down and forever till I am lasting on this planet ?

It was an experience , that has no price. I was blind, but with my ears sharpened more like a lasers. I heard the hearts of the winners and losers, I heard their glasses when they were sipping whiskey or just trembling nervously with their fingers , when they had bad beat. I heard  and understood different types of laughs, screams, shouts, even tears. It was not only a game of poker , it was a game of domination, game of one of the best minds in our century. In front of the cards and the tables with chips , they were all equal. They all wanted to be the stars and I was the star in the shadow – the blind , but most provoked and happiest star of all , that was happening around me. I began to realize on the second day what actually poker is about. Why is this all passion involved in it? Why people go crazy or go desperate? I realized why the masters of big buff are most likely non crowned world champions of chess. I have to say big thanks to me close friend Mr. Green for the another portion of lessons and great experience he gave me. Maybe I am blessed with friend like this. You can also stay and begin part of the society of green players he had created. Do not rush just make it right now, he has prepared a lot of games for you . Maybe he has that special one, that will make your brain shiver for a week or more ……

 

 

 

 

Sports madness

Hello, dear all. It is raining in my country and I am very positive about how we will grow up. I say “we”  , because without you, my blog would have gone away, long time ago. Writing is not just a pleasure , it is an adrenaline that does not let you down till you finished your post, or until the last word of idea that is coming regularly to your mind and dreams.

The dream come trough is when you watch, participate, feel, love, adore and cannot live without sports. In my daily routine I do practice fitness, basketball and table tennis. It is no need to explain you what energy you have and how powerful you feel after practicing the most beloved sports. It does not matter from the age or from your social status, but sports are the most valuable motive and scenario, which helps us to survive during the long way called life and freedom.

Have you ever thought that the most free people are the mad ones, they do not obey rules and do follow directions , whispered by their inner voice. We have come today to speak about sports madness and how I had such one several years ago. It was a crazy decision taken by impulse and I never regret about it. I gave myself a word , that I will watch sports events for 24 hours, no matter of the sport, no matter of where the event is watched – PC or TV, just watching and obtaining emotions .During that process , I tried to keep all of my senses open, because afterwards, I was about to make an analysis.

This day was a sunny Saturday morning. I started with football from South Korea, with the morning coffee. The next episode was a game from Japan, J-League 2.( When you are totally in love with sports, the time just passes like that, like a blink of an eye, or just a click with  fingers). The third game was Philippine’s basketball game(in this country, they do play very nice and interesting games, with many players from US and the rules of NBA ). On the scene came the early game from UK, Premier League on the TV. There are moment, when you just hear how the fans are singing. I have my favorite moments , when I listen to fans singing from Italy, UK ,Germany,Japan and Argentina. The most memorable thing is that they sing not only during the time-play of the game , they sing even before and after it. The feeling is gorgeous. It was time to change the sports and watch some tennis. I love Nadal, Rafa, This is the guy who knows how to play not only in clay. He has very smart hits and is moving like a tiger all around the corner, chasing every hard ball accepted. In my opinion there are top 5 best tennis player for all time – Nadal,Djokovic, Federer , Agassi and Sampras.  Suddenly , I felt interest to watch football again and switched the TV on Eurosport for a German, Bundesliga game. I have to say big thanks and to ask you to move your hats down for the fans of Borussia Dortmund ,Schalke 04 and Bayern Munich. In all of the games of these teams, I had watched, they were that noisy , that the feeling was as you have been in the center of volcano or like storm going strong. During the time of that marathon, I tried not to be for a long period away from my source of sports madness.It was 20:05 and was about time for the early game in NBA. When I watch basketball, I do totally crazy. I begin to shout , to jump , to say bad words 🙂 I am totally in the game. I love this game and most magical and amazing team is when the ball goes in the basket, trough the net. Three hours later , there was another game from the best basketball Championship all around the globe. I watched a lot and decided till 09:00 in the morning on the next day to watch only baseball. It was not long ago, when I traded baseball. It is not that popular here , in Europe, but it is a sport with a special magic and blaze of glory.

After the final game ended , it was time to mane an analysis, about what was the feeling during that 24 hours marathon in watching different sports:

  1. My mind was full with new impressions and ideas. My eyes were hurting , but it did not matter. I was happy.
  2. Sports is some special world, when you are in the deep parts of it, you never want to leave it or to stay away from it. I was one with fans, with players and trainers.
  3. I was united with ball, net , bat and the spirit of the different games. I watched the eyes and the strategies in different games , no matter if they were individual or team ones including.
  4. I watched every game in a different language . But the most powerful and inspiring thing is that the language of sport is one and it is unified. If you are in love with what you watch and practice , you perfectly realize what and how is happening.
  5. My adrenaline was on an unknown level. This was what I wanted to achieve, to jump that high in order to get to a new orbit. I love that orbit and that place.

Actually, my dear friends, I introduced you to a small part of my universe. I guess, you liked being part of it. If I was not in deep love with sports, we might never had met each other. The pleasure is all mine . See you in the next post. Be mad for every thing that you do, in order to shine not just to glitter 🙂
