But, of course, we have now heard these skin-crawling Weinstein stories many times. A teamster on the set had informed her that the car was faulty; the sequence, from every indication, needed a stunt driver.
How can they know in advance that a man will go to a certain pay phone at a certain time, so that he can see a particular truck he needs to see? How can the actions of security guards be accurately anticipated? Isn't it risky to hinge an entire plan of action on the hope that the police won't stop a car speeding recklessly through a downtown area?
A convoluted plan that relies on events completely within the realm of chance, yet goes off without a hitch.
If your first reaction to seeing The Plan unfold is "There is no way that you could have planned that would happen!
A Gambit Roulette tries to make a character seem impressive, but can break Willing Suspension of Disbelief if not done correctly. You really have to establish a character as The Chessmaster for them to be able to pull this off without arousing your audience's skepticism.
If the character pulling the roulette is a god, a person with precognition, a hyper-advanced AI, or someone else with similar abilities interacting with mortals, it becomes somewhat more believable, but even then, the suspension of disbelief can be tenuous at best.
If, as part of retconning in a new villain, everything up to then including the supposed successes of the heroes against the old villains is all part of a new Evil Planit's Arc Welding. Also often the justification of the Omniscient Morality License ; their control over events is supposedly total.

May be parodied by having events obviously and blatantly be out of the character's control, and yet still have them take credit for it. Note that complexity alone does not make a plan into roulette.

If the character has plans for either outcome, not just the improbable one, it's Xanatos Gambit. If they admit that they hadn't planned for certain occurrences, but took advantage of them as they came upthat's Xanatos Speed Chess.
Contrast Batman Gambit which is based on the most likely outcome, based on the planner's knowledge of the people involved, rather than an improbable one. A roulette requires the planner to say that events that were literally impossible to predict were All According to Plan.

I'll get stuck at the keyhole with reason alone. By trying to open the lock, you'd have to use another force. If I had to call it something, it'd be the "force of coincidence". You're defenseless when things happen by accident.
He's depending too much on coincidence! The plot of the Golden Age Arc relies on a certain series of events that would be otherwise meaningless without each other. Griffth's fall from grace, for instance, requires four things to happen in sequence or it's for nothing.
Justified by events being orchestrated by an Eldritch Abomination. Griffith's plan to capture Doldrey involves a legitimate Batman Gambitbut it also works flawlessly in spite of a factor that Griffith apparently left up to chance but would have ruined everything if it hadn't gone his way.
After Griffith lures Gennon's forces away from the castle, Casca and her group simply ride in through the castle's front gate which has been left wide open despite a battle being in progress.As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
