    Why promote a pawn to a queen if you dont use it?

    After 1. Nf5 black was lost anyway, so since it really didn't matter what black played, black decided to gain material by queening, and that move probably held out the longest.  Even though black's newly promoted queen never moved, it did alter white's follow up plan.

    Curious if black plays 1...Qf3+ right away. After 2 QxQ e1=Q the knight is pinned. But, 3 Rc8+ Kh7 4 Qb8 should do it.

    White could have matted with 5. Qf8 But I suppose the game was timed and the mate here is nice too

    Not quite, because white is in check.
