First, White has no way of avoiding the Scandinavian after playing 1.e4. After 1…e5 the game is on!
Second, White has limited options and Black is forcing the game in a favorable direction.
Mixing those 3 ingredients and sprinkling with the ‘element of surprise’ gets you a perfect recipe for a high-scoring opening!
FM Neustorev goes a step further and builds this repertoire around a rare 2…Nf6 variation, which requires even more knowledge and precision from White.
