If he hadn’t played Qxd2 like an idiot, Nxf3+ among other moves win

Um, the final position looks equal, maybe even winning for white. White gets the piece back as the knight on a8 must sacrifice itself for the two past pawns after d7. Suddenly black is one pawn up but very passive playing d7 is not forced, there may be some better continuation

36 Qe5 is blunder I suppose.

I think it's white's best choice. It frees up with central pawns and bishop. As well as giving himself attacking chances.

Obviously. Hence the need to announce it as such.
