The following were the main lines of the Swiss Gambit given by F. A. Lange in 1859:
Polish theoretician Alexander Wagner (1868-1942) published an article entitled A New Gambit. The Swiss Gambit in 1912. The Wagner Gambit begins with the moves: 1.f4 f5 2.e4 fxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.g4.
The term "Swiss Gambit" is also used colloquially to describe a (usually unintentional) strategy for Swiss system tournaments. In a "Swiss Gambit", a player loses or draws against weaker players early in the tournament, in the hope of being paired against weaker opposition in later rounds and finishing in the prize money.
