T9030 (Round 1)

I played the first of my T9030 games last night.

Overall, enjoyable, but I continued my losing streak with a misguided early h3 ( intending to support g4, but not really correct ) and a pretty bad blunder.

Qf3 ?? White loses immediately 
The position wasn't best before this, but I really shouldn't miss such tactics.

Not an excuse, but the time limit should not be under-estimated. Not being at my peak to start with doesn't help after 2,5 hours of play.
