Right now, <32...Nb2> is given as an exchange sacrifice by Black, but it is White who ends up an exchange down after the Knight is taken followed by <33...Qd1+>, winning a Rook. At no time is Black down by an exchange, but he is currently down with two pawns for a minor piece.

Isn't this a sham sacrifice of a whole Knight?
