Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-12-04  InspiredByMorphy: Mate in 9 moves! Not sure why theirs not a ++ next to the last move. Big win with the elephant gambit!

  beenthere240: what's a better 5th move for white? This looks a lot like the center counter game.

  tpstar: White should have played 5. Bc4 because 5 ... Bg4? loses a Pawn to 6. Bxf7+! Kxf7 7. Ng5+ & 8. Qxg4, otherwise White gets a fine game with 6. 0-0. Note the main line is 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d5!? 3. ed e4 and now 4. Qe2 makes sense G Kramer vs G Primavera, 1950 whereas for this Scandinavian Elephant 5. Qe2?! was a mistake. Nice miniature.
Sep-07-04  RubyDragon: "Well that rook won't matter, I'm fine here. I just... wait? Huh? Oh dear..."
Feb-27-05  soberknight: <tpstar> White could have done MUCH better than 5 Bc4 with the simple and strong 5 d4! This position, from the Anderssen variation of the Center Counter, normally comes after 1 e4 d5 2 exd5 Qxd5 3 Nc3 Qa5 4 Nf3 e5 5 d4. In this database, White's record from here is a convincing 7 wins, one draw and no losses!

I found on the web the following correspondence game, which was given as proof that "this aggressive counter attack is not considered entirely sound."

White: Lyskow/unknown
Black: Persitz/unknown
Event: correspondence
Date: 1957.??.??
Opening: B01: Scandinavian Defence
Result: 1-0
1. e4 d5
2. exd5 Qxd5
3. Nc3 Qa5
4. d4 e5
5. Nf3 Bg4
6. Bb5+ c6
7. Be2 Bb4
8. O-O Bxf3
9. Bxf3 Ne7
10. dxe5 O-O
11. Bd2 Qxe5
12. Re1 Qc7?
13. Nb5! cxb5
14. Bxb4 Re8
15. Rxe7 Rxe7
16. Bxe7 Qxe7
17. Bxb7!

Black resigned. White either wins a rook or checkmates on the back rank.

Feb-27-05  midknightblue: There is no ++ next to the 9th move because it is a 'mate in 1,' thus way to easy to earn ++
Feb-19-06  ArturoRivera: 5.-d4 sounds much better

  GrahamClayton: Is 6. ♕b5 exchanging Queens a better option?

  tpstar: <soberknight> The move order for this Elephant Gambit into Scandinavian is a little confusing, as 4 ... Qa5 is not forced = Opening Explorer

White gets a good game out of the Scandinavian transposition with 5. Nf3 = Opening Explorer
