A striking rook sacrifice

This game is from the last round of the Seattle chess club's March Tornado. I was not in a very positive mood as I played blunders in Round 2 in a winning position and almost lost but drew with some luck. Also the previous day I lost against Barton and didn't get any money at the Tacoma chess club. But after this game my mood was entirely changed and began to look up to my next tournament.
After winning this game. I went to the cross table and verified that I am atleast winning $75 even if Brugg wins on the first board. But within a few minutes Brugg and Tim agreed to a draw and I became the joint champion once again! A nice end to what could have been a disastrous tournament
