  1. After the bishop "sacrifice" you just have a losing position, but after the further knight "sacrifice" the position would have been completely lost.
    That's what everyone is aspiring to !

  2. Alternative title could be that you shouldn't just trust your opponent's sacrifices. Like you said, they can consolidate with Bf5 and the attack completely fizzles. After Qd1, Bf5 is not even an only move. Qe8, g6, even Bxg5 are all fine. I honestly think this game is just not a good example since the most obvious and forcing line is terrible for white with no compensation.

    There's the Colle vs John O'Hanlon game where the computer doesn't love Colle's Greek gift, but the normal move of Kg6 in response was a blunder. Even Kg8 would've required a series of precise moves to keep his advantage.

  3. This is a good example position and probably a good idea to sac, but i think you did a poor job explaining why. In order for this sac to be good you have to calculate at least "takes+ takes Ng5+ takes takes+ Kg8 g6". The advise to sac just because you have seen similar pattern before is terrible hopechess.
