This word is usually used in connection with chess. A gambit is an opening move in which a player sacrifices a less valuable piece (such as a pawn) in order to gain an advantage over an opponent.

Related to this is the word gambit to describe a trick or trick-like device, used to gain an advantage in any situation.

There is also a term "conversational gambit," which means an opening move in a conversation or discussion. This does not necessarily imply a trick or dishonest move, but may just be to get the conversation going: "Nice day, isn't it?" is a common gambit in this sense.

The word comes from the Italian gambetto, which means "tripping up."
