7...0-0? The most plausible move on the board - yet it loses! The correct move is 7...exd4

If 11...Nxe4 12.Nxc6 Nxc3 13.Nxe7+ Kh8 14.bxc3 and White is two pieces up.

Of course not 13.Rxe4??, Rd1+ forcing mate.

If 16...Rde8 17.Be7 wins the exchange.

18...Rxe7, Black has no choice, as a move by the other Rook permits 19.Bxc5.

White has won the exchange.
