The man behind the world’s first chess notary, who was the first person to use his smartphone to play a single-move game of chess, is being hailed as a visionary who inspired generations of young people.
Mariusz Szczypinski, now 53, said his early chess playing helped him to understand how the brain works.
“It’s an amazing skill that I’m trying to impart to my children,” Mr Szczypeinski said.
“The fact that they have a brain that has developed at such a young age is a miracle.”
Mr Szczipinski, a notary at the Szczecinski Hotel, said he had been playing chess for about 30 years.
“I remember the first time I had a piece on the board and I was thinking, ‘It’s going to take me two to three hours to beat this,'” he said.
He said his fascination with chess led him to a career in the notary business, and eventually his own business, which he opened in 2003.
“A lot of the notaries are not just interested in the game, they’re interested in what they do,” he said, adding that the business helped him earn his first living.
“We were making a profit for about four months, but it was a lot of work,” he added.
“But then I thought, ‘I can do this.'”
I’m the first to tell you that I am a very competitive person and I think I’m really good at chess.””
I like to win and I like to see my chess skills reflected on the chessboard.
“And so that’s why I’m going to make the chess notaries my business.”
Mr Szyczyinski said the business had not been a huge success so far, but he said he was determined to grow.
“One of the challenges is to find enough people to do this.”
So I am going to find a company and then I’m just going to work on it,” he told the ABC.”
This business has really changed the lives of the people that work here.
“Mr Karel, who lives in South Australia, said Mr Szypinski’s passion for chess made him a natural fit.”
He is a very good person,” he remarked.”
His interest in the field is very genuine and he’s very passionate about the field.
