Forced drawing line in the 2. ... Nf6 Scandinavian

    I'd try 14 Qf3, and before that I'd try 7 c4; but I really think that the extra check on b5 is just helping Black get a lead in development. I think Black's 4...Bg4 should be met by 5 f3.

    A gambit position with complete compensation. White almost never plays c4.

    really didn't know that but my point is black is always going for a gambit when he plays the modern scandanavian so it shouldn't be a suprise if he doesn't get the D-pawn

    The best try against it gains a really nice position though, so I don't know why white would want to force a gambit line or draw.

    Not necessarily. The main line quoted earlier in this thread--1 e4 d5 2 exd5 Nf6 3 Bb5+ Bd7 4 Bc4 Bg4 5 f3 Bc8 6 Nc3 Nbd7 7 d4 Nb6 8 Bb3 Nbxd5 gets the pawn back, after all. With 2...Nf6, Black simply delays recapturing. Black *can* play a gambit line with ...c6 or ...e6, but he hardly has to.

    No when black plays Nf6 white plays c4 and black is forced into a gambit position

    3. c4 c6 4. d4 cxd5 leads to Caro Kann, Panov Botvinnik Attack. 

    3. c4 c6 4. dxc6 is completely dubious for white. I have played several games with it. But that discussion is for another topic.
