Scandinavian Defence Zdun 3.c4

I played a Scandinavian Defence 2...Nf6 line with the intention to play a gambit. When White protected d5 with 3.c4, I challenged his forward pawn with 3...e6!? Dick Zdun figured that taking my offered pawn on e6 looked dangerous, so he just developed with 4.Nc3. That was fine, but his 5.Nxd5 gave Black a strong center. Soon White got into deep trouble. At first, he lost the Exchange by move 15. Then he fell for a mate when I sacrificed my queen.
