Chess Books Scandinavian Defence

Chess books about Scandinavian Defence

A defence for black that is highly popular at club level is the solid Scandinavian Defence, 1.e4 d5. With 1...d5 black opens lines for his pieces, enabling him to develop smoothly. The price black pays is a loss of time. After 2.exd5, 2...Qxd5 is the most direct recapture, after which white gains time by attacking the black queen. White has various attacking methods against 2...Qxd5, but black can retain a solid, if somewhat passive, position. 2...Nf6 entails more risk, as white has some ambitious ways to hold onto his extra pawn, although 3.d4, returning the pawn, remains the most popular choice.
