Alekhine-Scandanavian I have every so often gotten into an interesting position playing the Alekhine Defense that goes into the Scandanvian.
Here are the moves:

1. e2-e4 Ng8-f6
2. Nb1-c3 d7-d5
3. e4-e5 Nf6-e4
4. Nc3xe4 d5xe4

Now from this point I feel that I (black) have the advantage. So first do I have an advantage in this position? Is there a better move after 3. e4-e5? And lastly is there a name for this openning, because I like these games, because they are already unusual from the "norm" and provide an interesting middle game that is very open.

hello I ve looked throug the cm database.I think e5 is the most active and used move. After your moves I dont think black has any advantage at all, but the game is even. Its interesting to see that this variation u suggest r so seldom seen maybe white has a little advantage..I dont know
The more used move after 3.e5 is nd7 and then white has the very interesting move e6!? That swedish gm Hector used at some games with promising wins.. it sacs a pawn but makes blacks development complicated and opens up the e8-h5 diagonal for attacking chances.

4.Nce2!? 3... Ne4 is considered a sideline (3...d4 or 3...Nfd7 are more common) because after 4.Nce2!? black's knight isn't well placed in e4

3... d4 is the most common move. 3... Nfd7 and 3... Ne4!? are also seen, although the former allows a transposition to the French Steinitz as well as the move 4. e6!?.
