Although not a cut and dry strategy for Gambler, here is some advice I can recommend for the Open League. (The guide below will help with defeating him and for those still in the earlier leagues looking to score points).)

Gambler's weakspot early on is striking him with a low hook in the stomach region (1-3 strikes), best done after dodging one of his strikes. This will cause a Breathless status effect.

He is also somewhat weak to being blinded by hitting Elbow strikes to the head as his Focus Gauge is low but this is not something I would rely on often. When blinded, he takes more strikes to the head easily.

Once Breathless, he is vulnerable as he will not attack from what I can remember. He will still dodge attacks however. What I suggest is to follow up with more low hook punches until he is pushed into Long Range, then follow up with kicks, mixing it up to increase the damage output. Opinions may very and some may very well suggest to skip the low hook punches and just kick him.

Be very careful not to kick as the Breathless status is just about out; he loves to sweep. What makes the sweep annoying is that you cant dodge his next strike as you stand up right into the next hit.

The biggest problem is that once his Focus Gauge is empty or near empty, his attack pattern becomes erratic and very difficult to dodge. At this point of the game, a two string strike will pretty much ruin your score and life total.

Heres a few choices that you have remaining.

-Dodge and low hook.
He has a tendency to dodge the counter low hook when his gauge is near empty or empty.
Doesnt change anything besides lower his health. Only really good to catch your breath if he gets too erratic.
-Low hook
Works sometimes and causes a 2nd Breathless by the 3rd strike. The biggest problem with this is dealing with this game's silly choice of priority. You can be doing the motion for hours and it'll choose to let his moves come out first.
-If you can dodge a kick, sweep him by ducking and doing a low kick.
Fantastic if you can pull this off as this will actually raise his Focus bar and slow him down a tiny bit.

If you can cause a 2nd Breathless, you should win the match.

One last warning, the low hook superstrike really drains his Focus bar. I do not recommend it unless you're about to win the match. Do the superstrike anywhere else. I personally like the Straight Punch superstrike as it comes out quickly.

These tips should help improve your scores or help you secure wins. I was able to get 13k in League 1 and 14,759 in Open League with this strategy.
