    I am trying to get familiar with the Scandinavian. Which players should I look up if I like to learn a little about the Qxd5-line and/or the Nf6-line?

    Thank you in advance!

    I would recommend Larsen for starters, and in the modern era look at games from Ivanchuk, Kramnik, Gashimov, and Nakamura.

    There are some strong and creative players who play it as black, so you are spoiled for choice!
