The Gambiteers Guild


The Gambiteers Guild has built up an immense experience in a vast number of imaginative openings and defences, most of which are gambits that only a few dare to play in correspondence chess. We believe, however, that they are fully playable irrespective of the level of playing. The only talent one needs to have is imagination.
Remember our creed: "Only those who dare deserve glory - OYA, SUMUS QUOD SUMUS, OYA."

"GAMBIT - An opening in which one player offers to give up material, usually a pawn sometimes a piece or more, in the expectation of gaining positional compensation. The word gambit is derived from the Italian gambetta, a wrestling term for tripping up the heels, and was first used in its chess sense by Ruy López in 1561" (D.Hooper and K.Whyld, The Oxford Companion to Chess, Oxford University Press 1987).
