DUTERTE GAMBIT

IN CHESS, a gambit is an opening in which a player offers a piece with the hope of achieving an advantageous tactical position.

An entry in Wikipedia said the word "gambit" was originally applied to chess openings in 1561 by Spanish priest Ruy López de Segura, from an Italian expression dare il gambetto (to put a leg forward in order to trip someone).
