    6...Qd6 is bad for a whole host of reasons.Β  You need to develop Kingside pieces first and not plan to castle on Q-side

    Β 

    7...Ne4 does not develop efficiently.Β  7...e6 or g6 were better

    22. Qf5...Queen is too offensive here. Plus, she doesn't make any real threats = f2 is guarded by Rf1 and Kg1, e6 guarded by d5, and d5 is guarded by Bc4. Queen never makes another move and is unable to help defend the O-O-O castle. Queen's position at f5 would have made more sense on a O-O castle.
