Love it. It's also a excellent opening for beginners; as John Emms says in the Scotch Game (a book I highly recommend):
the Scotch is a very well respected opening that you can rely on ......................... It's also relatively easy to learn and can be played after little study; unlike the Ruy Lopez, Black doesn't have at his disposal a plethora of tricky sidelines.
