    To "run a gambit" has a very specific meaning and if you've never heard it, you're unaware of what he meant. So try not giving him the definition of gambit or anything else if you're that clueless.

    Guess who needs definitions now? Go read what indiscriminate and sophomoric mean, and see how neither applies to Omega's posts. That's strike three and four for you, in terms of basic English.

    [sarcasm] How dare you attempt to correct me. I am the great and powerful Omega. My judgement is final. I never use the a word incorrectly, that word simply changes it's meaning "So says Omega"[/sarcasm]

    Seriously though, gambit can be synonymous with gauntlet which is the context that I assumed everybody understood. And nobody likes a grammar Nazi.

    Actually people who scream keep your hands up usually have a rudimentary idea about the reasoning behind it. I think I'll start a different thread on the subject. The short answer here is because he slows down when he keeps his hands in the "boxer's" guard. I made him do it for days just to get him used to it. It's not cohesive with his style of fighting in which I'll need at least a year to beat out of his reflexes. Just saying.

    It has a specific meaning in chess.

    Without getting technical, it means **** up an opponent sideways.

    dare il gambetto.

    I understood Gambit as one of two things: 1. A manouvre in which material is sacrificed to gain an advantage, tactical or other wise. 2. That cajun ************ from the X-men that wanted to **** Rogue all the time in the animated
    series.

    Incidentally, I never understood why motherfuckers used either the King's or Queen's Gambit, I've always detested those moves that **** with the symmetry of the board in the openings. Having a pawn advance past home territory that early does not please me aesthetically.

    And for further stories of my triumph in my active days: I defeated a team mate with the Blackburn Gambit because he hadn't ever seen it before. Then he sinks a girl from rival high school in a tournament because she played Italian and fell for the Blackburn Gambit. Clearly she wasn't that smart, but still that **** was over in like 8 moves from black. I lost in the same tournament to a girl from the same high school because I was playing black and got fucking sloppy with my defense as I was watching my homie destroy the other girl. No one ain't get no ***** afterwords though. We were a bit disappointed with that.

    The origin of the Ango/French word "gambit" in chess is from the Spanish translation of Italian for "sweet ass leg throw" or something like that.
