    What about this game, Game 3907814, sacrificing a rook suddenly opens room for ideas, i'll try this in some more games

    What if your opponent had played 10...g5?

    After 10...Qc8 black would avoid checkmate threats with material advantage.

    I think after 10..g5 he would follow with 11. Qh5+ g6, 12. Qxg6#

    Of course 10..Qc8 would give black the room they needed - as Korch mentioned.

    Or even 7...g6 and then taken the rook on the next move.

    I remember paying for a few of my OTB games to be annotated by an IM. After submitting a (won) game of mine with annotations I was quite surprised by the IM's notes. I'd made quite a few poor moves that I thought were good and misunderstood my opponents play. The win was due to a later mistake by the opponent.
