Scandinavian - Moves other than 2... Qxd5?

  • #21

    3.c4 c6 looks like pretty much playable.



  • #22
    Here is an amusing line:
     


    Not at all sound, but few players will be able to resist Qa4+?

  • #23

    Think about how stupid the average person is, and then realize that half the word is stupider than that.

    I'm always amused by this cliché...because it actually turns out to be false.

     

    Lets say I have 9 people who are 2 feet tall and 1 person is 12 feet tall. The average height is 3 feet. but 9/10ths of the group are shorter than average.

    I would probably not resist, as 5.Qa4+ is a very good move.

    The real lemon is white's next (6.d5?)

    Indeed. 6.a3 then d5.

    #23 and #24...

    Think about how stupid the median person is, and then realize that half the world is stupider than that.

     A fun line to play is 2...g6 which also can be played with the Modern defence move order. The idea is that if White becomes greedy to hang onto the d5 pawn can easily found himself in a trouble, otherwise, it's a typical fianchetto Scandinavian where White plays with free risk to build an attack.

    @pfren, @EricWQ, you both get 5 points

    You could play the Icelandic Gambit and you can learn about it on www.Thechesswebsite.com

    Black is master.

    White is stuppid.

    This position is good for white.

    The best variant for sharp players.

    The "Foxy DVD #19 Center Counter Carnage!" by IM Andrew Martin deals pretty well with those moves other than 2...Qxd5 from black standpoint.

    Regards.

    5. Nf3, of course. Then 6.d4..+/=

    I'm playing a training game with someone at the moment, that's similar to some of the analysis in this thread, except that I inserted 5. Bb5+. It's a fun game which I can post here when it's finished.

    Btw, 1. e4 1... d5 2. exd5 2... c6 would be a very bad variation for a sharp player, because there's too much temptation for white to sit o the game with the extra pawn and win it while avoiding a tactical fight. Black doesn't have enough compensation, which is why it's only playable after a c4 by white.
