As we have seen in the two previous traps (Chess Traps #14 & 15), 7...0-0 loses for Black.

Relatively best is 9...Nxd4.

Of course 10...Qxe7 or 10...Nxe7 loses by 11.Rxe4.

12.Bxc3! is an important move. If instead 12.Raxd1 Raxd8(or Rfxd8), and Black is a pawn ahead.

No better is 12...Bxc6 13.Nxc6 bxc6 14.Be7. Or if 12...Raxd8 13.Bxd7.

Or 13...Rfe8 14.Raxd1 winning a piece.

White wins the exchange. White should win despite technical difficulties.
