Alekhine reborn?

 The following game was played at Street Chess today. At first I wondered how sound White's piece sacrifice was, but after a few more moves White gained an overwhelming initiative which soon resulted in a forced mate.  Black did make one major mistake (14 ... N8h7) but this did not detract from how White won the game. Making constant threats to drive the Black pieces to worse squares even reminded me of how Alekhine used to win his games.
