    Well, in such a haze of mistakes how knows. But I believe that you had a fair chance of winning.

    I had a look at that game from around move 20 or so. Black can relatively easily win this as far as I can see it. Don't take the pawn on g6 (it gives some protection for your King. If necessary take the rook back to the 7th or 8th rank (your King should be pretty safe), and the main point: Push the c-pawn. It is unstoppable. If white sacrifices a piece for that pawn, push the next c-pawn. You have two of them!
