A New Opening

Los Angeles Times Headline:

In Wisconsin, GOP gambit pushes anti-union bill forward

Senate Republicans omit financial provisions from legislation to curb public workers' collective bargaining rights, skirting a requirement that a quorum be present.

Too much material to capture
The GOP Gambit is more of a middle game tactic than an actual opening but we will have to see how the proletariat responds to this as Wisconsin heads into the endgame!  Will the pawns overpower the major pieces in this pseudo-chess game?

What's a gambit?
gambit (from ancient Italian gambetto, meaning tripping) is a chess opening in which a player, most often white, sacrifices material, usually a pawn, with the hope of achieving a resulting advantageous position (from Wikipedia).
