Please give me examples of out-thinking ("meta-game" or "leveling") during sports
The classic basic example, is a no look pass, ie: I'm looking right, so you know I'm gonna pass it right, then I pass it left!, I was intellectually one step ahead of you, so I succeeded.
After doing the no look pass several times, it is occasionally possible to "level" your opponent by thinking on a 3rd level, and deliberately look left, AND pass left, because he "knows" that a no look pass is coming!
Please give me other examples in sport, of leveling.
Given, any one fake move, is a 1 level fake, which is not interesting, I'm talking about anything 2nd level and up!
Another example would be the goalkeeper in soccer who during a penalty kick leaves an opens pace to his right, and jumps right to save the ball in the obvious open space. He does this 3 times, and on the 4th time, does not jump right but stays put.
Another example might be the fake statue of liberty play
. They pretend to do the statue of liberty, but actually don't.
I know this also comes up in poker quite often in many different forms (that is where I got it from).
I think the interesting part of these plays are that it requires a history between you and your opponents, where they are aware that you are thinking about the game at hand, and so they try to out-think you, and you take that to your won advantage!
