As I promised, this blog will be a very different one and I will try to add and write articles about all well known sports, places or passions on which people like to play , win or lose any money.
I will not give you or tell you any facts about that magical game that you already know. I will try to put my unique point of view. Actually every single one of us has it.
You will say to your self where are the common things between chess and poker. Let me give you my arguments:
1. Poker is a game of tactics and strategy, you have to know perfectly yourself and the future plans of your opponents. Same is with chess.
2. In chess you have figures that symbolize the quality and the quantity of play and hit. As in poker, you have perfectly to know in every single moment, when to hit or with what to improvise a surprise or “all in” measurement.
3. Both games are old as as the world. Ancient people always tried to invent games with which to kill some time or why not to win any money.
4. Both : chess and poker are games like a total war . You are fighting with all the weapons you have: brain, skill, cunning, to predict the next move and card of all the opponents in the table. In war, love, poker and chess anything can happen and there are no rules and forbidden things in the name of victory.
5. Passion and thrill . In chess , you think from the beginning, without making a single move hot to capture the opponent’s King, in poker you see and think about capturing other men capabilities. Passion is when you see and hear the cards move , when you see the eyes of the opponents sharpen or hidden behind the fog of a great fear…
6. Both games had produced great geniuses and men world and wide known. Kasparov, Karpov, Boby Fischer, Kapablanka , Veselin Topalov, Kramnik . For the side of poker : Tony G , Ole Scemion , Dan Smith, Scott Seiver , Bryn Kenney.
We all love both types of games. For each one of them , you have to have great skill, knowledge and “balls” to compere among the best.
