    This player, Iwillgetyou, thought name calling would bring victory, sadly in a blitz game, there is so little time.

    Doesn't matter now, but you could also have taken his bishop and gotten the rook in the bargain, bishop forks rook after queen takes bishop. Two rooks to one in end game.

    If you are that bad at chess, I guess you'll try anything.

    Some would say he screwed it up by hanging his Queen. I'd say he screwed it up by failing to grab obvious opportunities like 9...Nd3+ early on. The former is a careless blunder that all of us are susceptible. The latter indicates a lack of understanding of the game.

    Do you think the OP is much better?

    Seeing as how he blocked his own B and allowed ...Nd3+? Nope.
