Scandinavian (centre counter) Anyone can offer me some analysis in these lines?

1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qa5
1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qd6!
1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. d4 e5!
1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Nf6 3. c4 c6

The first line is the most frequently played variation or is the main line.The second variation is quite interesting but still its unclear.Third one I believe is better for black (Anderssen var.) In the fouth line,black sacrifices a pawn for rapid development.

Which one do you belive to be better for black?

I believe the actual Anderssen variation is 1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qa5 4.d4 e5 and doesn't quite have the same level of justification as the perfectly good 1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3.d4 e5 line. I'd usually play 4...c6 after 1. e4 d5 2. exd5 Qxd5 3. Nc3 Qa5 4.d4, a move order that is designed to avoid various annoying ideas white has. Admittedly it looks a bit slow, but so far I've no discovered any problem with it (hence I think option one is definitely absolutely okay for black).

Here are the main Anderssen variations...

Anderssen counter attack - Orthodox attack.
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qa5 4.d4 e5 5.dxe5 Bb4 6.Bd2 Nc6 7.Nf3

- I used to think 6. Bd2 was whites only choice but Ngd2 is fine.

Anderssen counter attack - Goteborg attack.
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qa5 4.d4 e5 5.Nf3

Anderssen counter attack - Collijn Variation.
1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Qxd5 3.Nc3 Qa5 4.d4 e5 5.Nf3 Bg4

I'm all ears if anbody has real solid opinion or experience on these.

I repeat again there seems to be no analyisis of this on the internet... perhaps somebody have access to some Kibitzing on these openings and other variations?

short comment on the last line I ussually don't play c4 to hold the pawn...I play 3. Bb4+ and then if Bd7 hold the pawn with Bc4. The games I have played in this line so far are of low quality full of mistakes and not worth mentioning.
Consequently, right now I am trying to reduce the number of games so I can play higher quality games here. But I would like to investigate the 3. Bb4+ line at some point, so if someone is interested in a game send me a message and I will get back to you.
