I'll appreciate any comments about alternative/better moves.

[EDIT - I think the puzzle is a lot better without the first move]
You missed a mate in 3 on move 25, starting with sliding either one of your rooks to g1. In the given puzzle Rhg1 is better than Rdg1.
Good job anyway! It feels so good to give up your queen, doesn't it?
Thanks Nate, right you are. Why is it better to move the rook on the h-file?
They are very close, but the best reason I can give you is that after some trades, a rook on the d file is better than one on the h file. Here is a puzzle for you, in the real game, after 26. Rdg1 Qf8 (not Qg8 which was played) what is whites move? and why?
I see your point.
How about 27. Rxg7+ Qxg7 28. Qf5+ winning the rook on c8? (And then yes, it's probably better having that rook on the d-file isn't it?)
That is correct!
Or that alternative is a lot better!
