  fredthebear: A few nice tactics by Black here.

Black robs the pinned pawn with 14...Ng3! to win the exchange of the hemmed in White rook.

I preferred 16...NxBd2, but it's a fair exchange of knights by the actual 16...exNd4 17.QxNf1.

The bully 24...Rxg2+! is a gut punch to the White king. If 25.KxRg2?, then 25...Qc2+will lead to mate. So 25.Kh1 was played (which actually sped up the mating pattern).

26...Qc6! sets up a diagonal discovered check followed by mate. The queen can deliver mate on the g2-square, supported by the Rg2 moving to clear the square and protect Her Majesty's arrival.
