The Holfstedter Gamble was modified by Sam Tucker, who realised the play could be used specifically to prevent the opponent playing a station without accruing a cost. The Tucker Block is simply discouraging an opponent from moving to a station that is beneficial to them by making it beneficial to you. This tactic has been used quite extensively, but is rarely accredited to its creator.
