A Win In The Birmingham Rapidplay

This was a game I played in the recent Birmingham Rapidplay. I was pleased with how this game went, I managed to control the c-file and with 25.Rc7 got my rook to the important 7th rank. When my rooks got doubled on the 7th (32.Rcc7) Black was already losing a pawn and I went on to polish him off in the technical phase.
