    I do not study the Scotch Game so I don't know this variation well. Some help?

    29 minutes is not a long time to bump a thread. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Bc4 Nf6 is a line of the Two Knights; 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. d4 exd4. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Nxd4 Bc5 is other line. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. d4 can be met with 4...Bxd4, but 5. c3 Bb6 6. Ng5 looks bad.

    So if you play the GIoco Piano meet the Scotch Gambit with 3...Bc5 if you play the Two Knights met it with 3...Nf6. I don't really consider the Scotch Gambit its own opening, it is really more of a move order.

    stop bumping christ. Just look up the kingcrusher video about a guy winning his first game against a grandmaster using the scotch gambit. They had an equal endgame after 4... Nf6
