Using the typical Sicilian exchange sacrifice

Typical exchange sacrifices in the Sicilian are not so difficult to learn, and can be great fun!

Usually 1 pawn for the exchange is good, plus having some active play. More pawns is often better. But of course it all depends on what is on the chessboard, and what the options are.

In this game I was very pleased with the exchange sac and the follow-up.

Here's some more exchange sacrifices to look at :
