This informative and appealing professional lottery book is written by a Russian from Novokuznetsk, an industrial city of miners and steel workers in the south of Western Siberia. But Yury Goldyrev comes from Magadan, a city of gold miners, sailors and fishermen on the coast of the Okhotsk sea. That is why, in his lengthy penname there is a link to a sea activity.
In 1957 he was born in that city of white summer nights and in 1974 finished a high school. Then he left for Tomsk and entered the Institute of Automatic Control Systems and Radioelectronics (TIACSR) to become a radio engineer. Tomsk, a city of university students, is to the north of Novokuznetsk. In 1979 Yury moved to Novokuznetsk to aquire skills of a TV-systems-of-technological-control electrician at ZapSib, now EVRAZ ZSMK, MetCombinat. Three years later, after feeling an overwhelming desire to study English (due to his dad’s genes) and pedagogy (due to his communicative abilites) he entered the Novokuznetsk Pedagogic Institute to switch to the career of a school teacher of English.
Gail Howard, the queen of the US lotteries, got her first AWMs for Pick 5 and Pick 6 lotteries from a Bulgarian immigrant, as Yury learnt on her site. It’s a pity, she passed away. He used to hope he would talk to her some day.
However, unlike Gail, Yury with all his school and family routine, being, by the way, a deputy headteacher for two years, didn’t have much time to look for lottery stuff anywhere. Stirred by his ancestor Lavrentiy’s genes, HE TAUGHT HIMSELF TO WIN PRIZES IN DIFFERENT TYPES OF LOTTERIES INVENTING ALL THE NECESSARY LOTTERY TOOLS BY HIMSELF, HAVING BECOME COMPLETELY LOTTERY EQUIPPED and INDEPENDENT.
