    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I started playing chess when I was 7, then I taught the basics to this absolute geek across the road because I was like, "yeah, smackdown time". But I wasn't a geek and I liked to play basketball, skate and do things outside. Two weeks later geek comes over with his own chess board, much better, cleaner and shinier than mine and owns me in a game. I was all, "**** this ****, I'mma go play outside" with dude going, "we should play again" and me like, "nah, I'm done with this geek ****, I'm a boss, you a nerd, we on different sides of the fence, bitch" then I wedgied the **** out of him and stole his calculator to write 'BOOBS" on it.
    GET A RED BELT OR DIE TRYIN'.

    I love that this became a chess thread. Are we agreed that gambit means "opening (involving, in chess, a sacrifice)" and not "smackdown"? (And if you "ran a gauntlet", you'd be the one in danger.)

    Btw mad respect for Omega for everything outside of his prose. God knows why I felt like starting ****.

    No, because chess was a red herring.

    A gambetto means to trick your opponent into ending up on his ass, using your legs.

    To run a gambit means to throw your opponent onto his ass by being deceptive.. In chess, this is done by sacrificing material. In Omega's context, he literally meant tossing you on your ass.

    Or you should stop trying to debate definitions and semantics in a YMAS thread.

    Um......in that case I used it in the correct context. You just misunderstood what I meant. Letz meese esplain:

    When I say gambit I mean
    1 round kickboxing
    1 round grappling
    1 round sanda
    1 round mma
    1 round weapons
    1 round Jiu Jitsu

    See? Gambit.

    Who said I was trying? I wasn't the one who started picking on Omega's word choices.

    Wait...you didn't read the actual thread did you? You just came in this one to cry.

    Last week, a friend of mine and I learned that we both played chess, so we played a game. I won in a few moves with classic dick strategy of going straight for the king with the queen along a diagonal within the first few moves of the game when the king's still surrounded by its own pieces. Is there a name for that?
