    Yes, luck.

    Wait...you didn't read the actual thread did you? You just came in this one to cry.
    I refuse to enter into a semantic argument with you about semantics.

    That just way too meta...

    What Fake said, but sounds like "Scholar's mate", or the "Fool's mate".

    There is. I can't remember what it is....and your friend does not "play chess" if it worked.

    This was an ADHD motorcycle afficionado who learned to play on a trip to China, so I figured his game wasn't very good.

    This isn't Your Word Usage Sucks, but neither is it Your Chess Partner Sucks...

    So you ran the gamut of rulesets with him. Or he "ran the gauntlet"--but only him, because he was the one getting his ass kicked. Your gambit, in this case, would have been the first tactic with which you opened a given round, or any risky trick you used.

    In Googling this stuff (you should try it!) I also found the fun fact that "run the gauntlet" was originally "run the gantlet" or "...gantelope", but we mixed it up with "gauntlet" as in "an armored glove", and it stuck. Also this.

    I happen to like talking about word usage almost as much as I like playing jiujitsu...but I wouldn't do this in a thread that wasn't already so, well. So like this.

    Yeah...no. I chose to use the word gambit which is a synonym for gauntlet.


    I'm not going to keep going around in circles on this matter.

    If you don't change it to "a Hurricane of Fightey Stuff" sadly, I'll never get it.

    That and it's also in part of his TKD training. I do something similar, sometimes on purpose, it's kind of predictable to see what your opponent is doing next when there is some distance.
    however, if the opponent happens to be fast, my hands become glued to my head.
    IMO. I think it's a bad habit that comes out involuntarily or subconsciously. Against a decent boxer(golden gloves competitor status), and you'll be in for a treat if you continue to do that.
