    My favorite opening, even though I usually play white. It opens up many options for attack and counterattack.

    My friend (who became first in the Sri Lanka qualifying to the Asian Schools Chess Championship with an Elo rating of 1493)plays this opening.But I don't play it cause I prefer e5 and the Petrov's defense which I get good results with.

    The Scandinavian Defense is a perfectly playable opening for black.

    It also has a great advantage:you can play it on the first move,which means you can play it everytime you want against "1. e4";so if you are a beginner or you do not have a lot of time for the study of chess theory you can use this opening as the "universal" move against 1. e4

    I have played a little while, rank only 1100. I just started to use this when playing black against kings pawn open, any thoughts? Is this completely  retarded?

    If White plays 2.e5?!, Black gets a good, solid game after c5 followed by Nc6, where he has pressure on the advanced pawn and relatively easy play

    why not go for the dunst opening ? 

    this position is great for white.

    In my opinion, this is not a big deal. Obviously, taking the pawn in d5 it's an error, the best response is the simplest: 2. e5. It switch the position to a french defense. Just like I did in this game: http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=619446033

    The best defense against 1. e4 is 1... e5  The easiest and most natural response. Having trouble with Italian? Try two knights' defense. Don't like Ruy López? Try Bird's defense.

    I love the Scandinavian Defense!!  Not only does it lead into the Icelandic Gambit, but there is also a cool secondary gambit you can play if white declines your first gambit pawn.   This gambit will give you a semi-open F file for your rook after you castle.
