Catalan: Sacrifice and Tactics!!

A great friend of mine Stephen Milford, had a lovely win the other day with his much-loved opening, the Catalan. I myself have spent over 2 or 3 years on and off playing this opening with him and I rarely got a look in with it as black - Here is a great example of sacrifice and tactics working together in harmony! As per usual the commentary is exquisite and the game is a real gem: Catalan officionados "Take Note!"

As usual, any comments welcome ...
