lol. Good Game!
This is a Delayed Scandinavian Bongcloud. It's not to be confused with the Scandinavian Bongcloud (1. e4 d5 2. Ke2?!). The Delayed Scandinavian Bongcloud is better for white because of this trap (1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Ke2! Qe4#?? 1-0).
The best moves for black after 3. Ke2! are 3. ... Bh3! (setting a counter-trap: 4. gxh3?? fatally opens white's g-file, preventing white from getting the f4-g3-h4 setup with the king on g4, which is very strong) and 3. ... h5, giving up half a tempo to prevent the move 17. Kg4 in ECO F34 line C.
I stand corrected.
