"A series of three successive moves made with strategic intention."
Listed below are a few examples of the many opening RPS gambits:
The slow-building nature of this gambit makes it a very elegant opening series.
The Denouement is the mirror of the Crescendo and uses a "cooling-down" approach. When used in tandem with the Crescendo the result is often a baffled opponent.
This move took the 1967 RPS World Championships by surprise and is arguably still one of the great surprise offensive moves.
A subtle, yet aggressive gambit. Was the first of the Triple Gambits developed in the early 1890s (the others being The Bureaucrat and Toolbox).
An invasive and devious gambit.
The complexity of this series is belied by its apparent simplicity.
