  OhioChessFan: Black has to play 5....a6?
Dec-25-05  ichessu: If I am not mistaken, in scandinavian black plays c6 immediately after the queen goes to a5 allowing for an escape route.
Apr-17-06  Luckyicekiller: Best is to leave development of Queen knight until after 4. c6! The best transposition that can be hoped for after the counter attack. Play could continue with the development of the Queen knight to d7. The queen will be chased back but at least a flight square has presented itself.

  FSR: 5...Nxd4 was of course correct. Black is fine after 6.Nb5 Qb6 7.Be3 e5, e.g. 8.Nxd4 (8.c3 Bd7) exd4 9.Qxd4 Qb4+ 10.Qxb4 Bxb4+ 11.c3 Bd6 12.Bb5+ Bd7 (Houdini 3).
