Scandinavian Sorcery

I encountered Phil a second time in just a few weeks and having lost with my favoured French I thought I would revert to 1.e4 which I hadn’t played in ten years.

I was playing down a good line but h3 was imprecise and once I had a rush of blood with Bxb7 I suffered badly. I had intended to simply play Qb3 and computer analysis shows this was fine as the Black King is a bit exposed.
