Quick Definition: A short memorized line or routine that can be used to deal with specific situations that arise during a pickup.

Full Definition:

Gambits are canned routines designed for specific purposes such as increasing BT, creating DHV spikes, or keeping a conversation going. Well developed gambits are like grenades in a PUA’s arsenal that can be thrown into an interaction to deliver the desired result.

For example, Mystery’s kiss gambit:

PUA: “Would you like to kiss me?”

HB: Yes/No/Maybe/Hm

If yes, great.

If maybe, “let’s find out” and lean in.

If no, “that’s okay, I didn’t say you could; you look like you had that on your mind.”


I have a whole series of gambits prepared to deal with any situation.
