Hello chess friends ! :-)

I am starting with a new idea. Not simply tactic puzzles, but a more generic game question. Here's number one :

Today I played a hectic and exciting blitz game, in which I decided to sac material in the opening, with 7...dxc3

The question is : Was this sacrifice correct ? Should black have been able to profit from the exploited white king, and also win the stuck white knight on h8 ?

Please do not use a chess engine right away, but try to evaluate the position by yourself first.

Here's the full game, with the diagram "pauzed" just before 7...dxc3


If you have any interesting game for the game quiz, let me know !
