Black counter attacks on white’s center with first move (e4-d5) Now white has to capture the pawn if he wants to get advantage, but after capturing pawn black captures with Queen (Main Line). Now after 3. Nc3 white wins a tempo but the fact is White can not do anything with tempo! (Sounds good for black player while white players in shock now 🙂 ).
Black has very solid position in Scandinavian just like in caro kann, So don’t underestimate this defense be prepared against it.
