Hi, I wana sugest a new thematical tournament: 1. e4 d5; 2. exd5 Nf6 I think is called the Portuguese atack in the scandinavian defense. What you think?

That's a nice idea. Great opening with interesting recent developments.
Waiting list is now open ;)

and i hoppe some strong players came to play to.

I thought the Portuguese attack referred specifically to the line 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Nf6 3.d4 Bg4!? which would certainly make for an interesting thematic tournament.

Do not listen to Miguel too much... there would be a portuguese variation in every opening ! :)

I can't say if the portuguese attack start's with Nf6 or after d4 Bg4, because i never study this. Like you say i find a new line that was "invented" by portugueses: 1.d4 d6; 2. c4 e5; 3. dxe5 Nc6!? IS called (in Portugal) The Gambit of Barreiro. when you wana you can start a new thematicall tournament
