Scandi - part 2
This time a Qd8 line game. Queen retreat to d8 is what the achja chess study group members are testing themselves.
Queen back to d8 is considered the most solid, as white cannot attack the black queen right away, like in the Qa5 and Qd6 lines.
GM Kogan calls the Qd8 line the Illudain line, in one of the SOS opening books.
