It looks as though White will win one of the knights. Fortunately for Black, there is a counter-thrust which turns the tables neatly.

12.Nxe6? The correct line is 12.f3 Bd6 13.fxe4 Bg4, which leads to a complicated game with Black having a strong attack for the sacrificed piece.

13.f3? White expects to win a piece, but he forgets the danger to his King.

14.Be3... There is nothing better. On 14.Kf1 (14.Kh1 allows 14...Nf2+) Qh4 15.Q(or R)e2 Ng3+ 16.hxg3 Qh1#. Nor does 14.Kf1 Qh4 15.Qc2 Nxf3 16.gxf3 Rxf3+, followed by 17...Rf2+ yield any better results, for White\'s game is torn to shreds.

If 16.Kh1 Ng3+ 17.hxg3 Qh5#.

Any examples of this in games?

I\'m sad to say that I don\'t have any example of this game being played in a tournament. The tactical ideas might be useful if played in an actual game.
