Let's look at the position after this sac:
I think it's interesting that this works so early in the game.
Black has a lot of development, so fun tactics pop up :) Also it's not really a sac, black gets 3 pawns for the exchange (plus white is still in the middle).
Oh, I didn't see how black lost a piece before giving up the exchange... so I guess he is a rook down, I missed that :p
take the knight
Taking the knight gives up the attack and black loses right away. I was looking at threats on f2 so maybe Qc7 or Qd6. Also after black plays Rb1 (which seems forced) black can go for the skewer theme with Bf5. But just looking on my own I can't see very far, this position (or before) would make a good puzzle.
The ultimate reason why you should never ever ever ever ever ever resign...
