A Piece Sacrifice Against Fischer Himself! Can That Work?

In this video I am analyzing a famous chess game where American GM Bobby Fischer demonstrates precise defensive skills after his opponent Romanian IM VIctor Ciocaltea sacrifices his knight on d5-square in Sicilian Najdorf! Fischer repels the attack pretty easily and left with a piece down White resigns seeing that there is nothing else he can do!
