Sacrifices for the attack

I played this game in an International Master Tournament in Budapest. My opponent was an International Master who did a lot of effort for the chess life in Hungary.
I played the Nimzo-indian defense. The game went well until the middle, when he decided to give up the defense of the king for the attack of my rook and later also his queen left alone the king. Then I was able to make several sacrifices to open the kingside and break in to give a checkmate.
When you replay the game, please look the annotations under the board and look also the variations and side lines!

    Thanks for the article. It was useful to see how instead of obsessing over material advantage, you evaluated the positional weaknesses and exploited them quite nicely.

    Are there techniques, guidelines etc. that you can talk to us about how to effectively use those pawns when they are together but hanging like that? Maybe you could talk about gaining space, defending them, attacking with them, include some game examples of effective and ineffective play when this pawn structure occurs? Thank you so much!

    Also, I like how the 1st knight sacrifice didn't just open up the diagonal and take out a pawn, it seems it opened up your incredibly useful rook on the e-file too.
