Taking that knight down

Sometimes all it takes for white to get an attack is removing the black f6 knight from the scene. It may be a case of personal preference, but a nice way to do this can be with a rook. (A friend of mine has a particular liking for giving up the exchange in this manner).

Below is a casual OTB game I played with a college friend. It is the second game I played with him at that occasion, and I lost the first one with black. I was very unhappy with my play in that game, and intent on getting back at him. Turns out I managed to do so by taking his f6-pony down with a rook!

The game is below. Annotations will follow soon.
