Chess Traps #11: A Trap in the Sicilian Rossolimo

This is a chess trap that, oddly enough, you’d be more likely to see an experienced player fall for instead of a beginner or amateur. I say this because acquiring the position for the trap out of the Sicilian Defense, Rossolimo variation is more likely to come about from a game between two experienced players. At first, it is black who may think white has blundered on move 7, but black can easily overlook a super beginner-like move by white that is in reality both deep and deadly.
