This is what happens when you have your queen chased around :)
that;s what happens when u play a novice
Yep a novice for sure. The correct move for black after taking the d5 pawn back is 3...Qa5! anything else is risky. Then your meant to continue developing basically....
Qd6 has also gained some popularity, but yeah if you play the Scandinavian like this, you are sure to lose.
Yeah its a good lesson for novices to see how useless it is to move the same pieve over and over again with no real developement.
i also like how you hung your knight for like 3 moves and he didn't even notice.
on black's 11th move why wouldn't he take the Knigt on e5??
Scandanavian is my secret weapon. u destroy white centre instantly.
Beating someone who forgot to learn the third move of the Scandinavian. ;)
...Qa5, ...Qd6, ...Qd8, ...Qe5+ are better.
But memorization is not essential. It's enough for Black to realize he must move the queen to a square where it won't be chased around. ...Qd4 is an unfortunate choice.
rofl shit game
2... Nf6 variation is my favorite. I've been working on the sicilian dragon a bit, but the theory is just too much for me. I understand what's going on in 1. e4 d5 2. exd4 Nf6
That is unofficially known as the Patzer's variation :D White gets too much development with Qe5+ white plays Be2 and then kicks the Queen with Nf3.
I used to play the 2.Nf6 variation until I looked at the 3...Qd6 variation :D
trentthechessnut> Not Qe5+
I stand by what I said. Even 3...Qe5+ is better than 3...Qd4.
From a practical perspective, 3...Qe5+ gives White some small chance to go wrong and play 4.Qe2?. According to my database White finds the best move after 3...Qe5+ 'only' 75% of the time, but 3...Qd4 4.Nf3 100% of the time.
From a theoretical perspective, 3...Qe5+ encourages White to put his bishop on the passive e2-square. The same can't be said for 3...Qd4.
GM John Emms makes the case that even though it fits the "Patzer sees a check, patzer plays a check" profile, ...Qe5+ is not as bad as it looks--the point being that the maneuver ...Qe5+ + ...c6 + ...Qc7 takes the same number of tempi as ...Qa5 + ...c6 + ...Qc7.
Lastly, ...Qe5+ has been attempted by at least nineteen FM or better players, while ...Qd4 hasn't been attempted over the 800-elo (OTB) level.
In my estimation, ...Qe5+ is unsound while ...Qd4 is an error.

I like ...Qa5 and ...Qd6 myself. :)
