1. e4 e5 2. Bc4 Nf6 3. d4 exd4 4. Nf3 Nxe4 5. Qxd4 Nf6 6. Nc3 Be7 7. O-O O-O?!

Better 7....d5!

 

8. Bg5 Nc6 9. Qh4 d6 10. Rfe1 Bf5 11. Re2 Qd7 12. Rae1 Rae8 13. Bb5 Bd8 14. Nd4 Rxe2 15. Rxe2 h6 16. Bd2 Bg6 17. Qg3 a6 18. Ba4 b5 19. Nxc6 Qxc6 20. Bb3 Re8?

After simply 20....Kh8!, White might have pressure but Black might be able to make his pawn count in the end. This move loses the Bishop at g6.
