Losing for a second time to an eerily similar idea happens... but falling for the same long term, positional sacrifice to the same opponent? Here GM Mikhalevski takes his opponent to school a second time with a similar early sacrifice of a knight on f7. In the style of Tal, Victor gets a strong initiative and a lot of pawns in compensation for his pony, and his opponent wishes he had learned his lesson the first time!
