A Scandinavian for black -Icelandic
Compiled by takchess
--*--

I started playing the Scandinavian after years of being a 1 e4 e5 guy. This is a source collection for some ideas. Just bought Smerdon Scandinavian book (Recommended) as I am intrigued by his lecture found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m2Q... .

My collection starts off with 5 games copied from Kellworthian Smerdon Scandinavian Collection.(thanks!). It then moves through the various flavors of the Portuguese Variation depending of whites move after ...Bc5. Then other variations where white does not play 3 d4. The banker goo.gl/13Hwkc
The risky banker goo.gl/yPrV7T dxe7 check
The safe banker goo.gl/QNydEp Be5
