Chess Openings for Beginners – Beating the Scandinavian Defense

♕ ARTICLE: target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>
The Scandinavian Defense is a common beginner chess opening, allowing black to immediately challenge white’s center and activate his queen. However, I believe white is able to generate very dangerous threats very early in the opening if he plays very actively and with a clear plan. In this article I will be examining the main line of the Scandinavian Defense with 1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qa5. There are other principal continuations that black can employ, however the ideas presented in this article should overlap and transpose very well with different move orders by black.

PGN’s can be copy pasted by dragging your mouse over the chess moves on the diagrams on my site.
