    i am the king of queen blunders. would be of little help to you.  maybe moving the king rook threaten the pawns with a f/u bishop move to take the pawn?

    At move 11 you could've done:
    11.Qh5+  g6
    12.Nxg6  hxg5
    13.Nxh8+ Kd7
    14.Ng6   etc., wins exchange

    I think 10. Nef7 just wins stuff. Point being 10..h6 fails to 11.Nxh8 11..hxg5 and 12. Qh5 +. After which you can (at least) castle and consolidate with extra material

    10.Nef7 would be stunted by 10...f4 and white has two threats to black's one: if white takes the rook by 11.Nxh8, then 11...Qxg5 and the knight at h8 is trapped if white saves the bishop. If he saves the knight instead, he loses the bishop.  The end result is two minor pieces for a rook.  Not a good prospect.

    theboo i think i would beat you at queen blunders, at least in blitz games lol it happens to me all the time mostly because i like to force open attacking positions then somthing distracts me like a message on facebook or somthing makes a sound then i totaly lose my concentration and it all falls apart lol

    And then 25. Red1, attacking the Q, with an eye to covering d7 so you can effect a mate with Qa8.  But maybe 24. Red1 would be better instead, then the bishop.  The idea is to try to gain tempo with both moves.

    exactly that was in the back of my mind, but yeah Red1 is probably better as his queen has limited movement and then the bishop black is in a horrible possition.

    Actually, looking again, 24. Bxc5 is best after all, because you don't want black gaining tempo on you with 24.Red1 Qe3+.  Sorry, I overlooked.

    lol your right after Kh1 black can regroup a little although his position still isnt great i can trade off rooks and he has too move his king into the middle within striking distance for my other rook and queen to threaten matedo serious damage
