I hate the scandanavian as well. I have learned a great trick from Mr. Fischer.
This line e4 d5 exd5 Nf6 c4 c6 d4 cxd4 Nc3 transposes into the panov-botvinnik attack. I like playing this type of pawn structure against the scandanavian, french, and caro kann. The games are all similar and is much easier to try for a win with these types of games.
Originally posted by greenpawn34The problem with the blackmar is that black can simply move into a caro-kann with 2. ..c6 or french defense with 2. ..e6. Though I suppose you can still play for the gambit in the first case after 3. Nc3 dxe4 4. f3. But the caro-kann approach is probably the most comfortable versus the blackmar gambit - rock-solid as usual.
Try 1.e4 d5 2.d4 The Blackmar Gambit - that's good fun and
you get to sac some wood.

This is the most common one
1. e4 d5 2. Nf3 dxe4 3. Ng5 Nf6 4. Qe2 Bf5 5. Qb5+ Bd7 6. Qxb7 Bc6 7. Bb5 Qd7 8. Bxc6 1-0 [/pgn]
Those greedy pawn grabbers never knew what hit them.
