Help Mate In Seven On ICC

Here is a fun filled game that my blitz opponent who was white made a helpmate move on move 29 by moving his rook on F2 after that all hell broke loose. By moving his queen from the H file to Qf2 would have offer more resistance to me especially since this was a blitz game on ICC and I was running short of time.

But instead by Black moving his rook to F2 it was force mate in seven. In blitz time settings when one only has less than five seconds a move to make the right choice, sometimes the wrong move results in catastropic consequences.
