The long tactic....

I've had some luck exploiting positions where there's a tactic there, but it might take a few moves to resolve itself. If you can spot these, it could make the difference against even strong players.
In this game, I seemingly sacrifice the Knight. I say "seemingly" because it was not really a sacrifice at all. It was a well thought out tactic that didn't reveal its advantages for about four moves! I suspect White didn't know what hit him.
Check it out:
As a point of conversation... I'm sure someone will post how "easy" this was... that seems to be the thing to do here . But for those who don't think this is easy, you may wonder "How did you see that?".
There were a couple things I saw that I knew I could exploit if just timed right. Here's the whole game:
I welcome any feedback, if someone sees some alternatives or just wants to discuss. I know a couple continuations that might have been better for white, but I was confident I'd end up with at least a +1 material advantage regardless of what white did.
The moral of this is that if you can train yourself to see complex tactics and predict the continuations you'll smoke a lot of players!
