The Smooth Scandinavian Defence with 3...Qd8 - IM Robert Ris

Are you looking for a simple, easy-to-learn repertoire against 1.e4? Then the Scandinavian with 3…Qd8 is yours! After 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 the retreat 3…Qd8 leads to a very solid type position for Black. At the expense of two tempi, the pawn structure has been defined, and hence a clear developing plan can be made for our minor pieces. The first goal is to get the light-squared bishop out to g4, then placing the pawns on c6 and e6. Now Black has a rock-solid setup and good chances to build up pressure against White’s pawn on d4 and/or use the d5-square as an outpost for any of their pieces.
