Pablo Sacristan om utställningen Shameful Gambit

1) A chess opening in which a player, sacrifices material, usually a pawn, with the hope of achieving a resulting advantageous position.

2) A device, action, or opening remark, typically one entailing a degree of risk, that is calculated to gain a future advantage.

In chess, a gambit is said to be 'sound' if it is capable of procuring some concession from the opponent.

There are three general criteria in which a gambit is often said to be sound:

-Time gain
-Generation of differential activity
-Generation of positional weaknesses"
