How to play the Scotch Game

The Scotch is a hard opening to play. I am going to show you a few different lines black might go for. Here is some back round info.

Rather than develop another piece, in the Scotch Game White chooses to break open the center, challenging the e5 pawn. This opening was named after an 1824 correspondence game between Edinburgh and London.

  Classical Line

 
 
 
Qh4 Line
 
 
 
Bb4+ Line
 
 
Mieces Line
 
Now the lines if you do not take the pawn.
 
 
 These are some links that gave me information. 
Later I might find a new line so look in the comments. happy.png
