Forced drawing line in the 2. ... Nf6 Scandinavian

    The best try against it gains a really nice position though, so I don't know why white would want to force a gambit line or draw.

    Not necessarily. The main line quoted earlier in this thread--1 e4 d5 2 exd5 Nf6 3 Bb5+ Bd7 4 Bc4 Bg4 5 f3 Bc8 6 Nc3 Nbd7 7 d4 Nb6 8 Bb3 Nbxd5 gets the pawn back, after all. With 2...Nf6, Black simply delays recapturing. Black *can* play a gambit line with ...c6 or ...e6, but he hardly has to.

    No when black plays Nf6 white plays c4 and black is forced into a gambit position

    3. c4 c6 4. d4 cxd5 leads to Caro Kann, Panov Botvinnik Attack. 

    3. c4 c6 4. dxc6 is completely dubious for white. I have played several games with it. But that discussion is for another topic.

    When Black is a higher rated guy. Simple. 

    then black will not go for this variation

    The diagrams in post 45 are taking too long to load. Forgive me if I'm repeating something that has already been said.
