Mistakes for black in the Scotch

This is my first blog post so bear with me, and let me know what you think!

In the game below I play white in the Scotch opening. My opponent played 3.. d6 which was the first time I had seen this reply. An interesting idea perhaps, looking to develop the QB but he quickly falls victim to a queenside pin. A reminder to study all openings and learn a few moves of the main line, at least, to get you through an unfamiliar opening.
