The first-move advantage in chess is the inherent advantage of the player (called White) who makes the first move in chess. Chess players and theorists generally agree that White begins the game with some advantage....
Unlike Fool's Mate, which rarely occurs at any level, games ending in Scholar's Mate are quite common among beginners.
By the way the most common opening in white is e4 e5
So If you see the...
1. e4 e5 2. Qh5 Nc6 3. Bc4, if Black continues 3... Nf6? then White can end the game immediately with 4. Qxf7#. However, Black can easily avoid the mate: either 3... Qe7 or 3... g6 defend against the threat. If White renews the Qxf7 threat after 3... g6 4. Qf3, Black can easily defend by 4... Nf6, and develop his bishop later via fianchetto to g7.

One of the oldest chess openings, the scandinavian defense, black immediately challenges the center from white's e4 with d5. After white recaptures black has two options to respond. Black can immediately recapture with his queen and reach equality in material or play Nf6 and try to gain a spacial and developmental advantage. If black chooses for Nf6 both sides need to keep their eyes open as there are many small traps that both sides can fall for that will destroy their position.

So on move 3 after capturing with the Queen, when white attacks with the knight, you pull her back to d6, which I felt was safer than leaving her on a5. Sorry for not explaining myself properly the first time, but back to the original question. Isn´t this the Bronstein variation, or have I totally gotten mixed up again?? H.G.
and white's next move is d4 to open the both bishop's way...
1. e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qa5 4.d4 Nf6 5. Nf3 Bf5 6. Bd2 c6(making a safe square for queen) 7. Bc4 e6
