I think the sacrifice was quite sound and anyone who
would ever resist it is would have to be a coward.
White has severe problems with his pieces, especially
his dark squared bishop and his a-rook, while you have
plenty of attacking chances, some nice advanced pawns,
and a light squared bishop that can come help at any
time. Castling was a nice touch. After 1...Ke1 though,
you have to look very hard at the position and decide
whether it is appropriate to retake the bishop as an
alternative to taking the pawn on f4 and getting a nice
pawn structure while still retaining the initiative.
However, the way you played was fine also. I would have
been very fearful, however, if your opponent had played e6
in the endgame instead of capturing on d6.
