Cool.  I've seen this one before though.

yes, but aren't all chess positions different variations on the same recycled themes, varying only in the minor details?

too bad for black....

chess players should bear in mind that every strange sacrifice follows a very awful harm....

no candy is given for free.......

so don't take any bait,..                                                                                     think twice or more before moving ....

Yeah, it was supposed to be over the top. It turns out black's knight is also beyond saving (this would not be the case if white took h6, because it would allow a rook check), and afterwards, unsurprisingly, his pawns. This is an easy endgame for white.
