Hanging Pieces? Quiz for 12/29

This was from a recent game I had online. I'm not too proud on how I played many parts of the game, but was happy to get to this position.
The last two moves prior to this position were 22... Rd2 23. h4
I am black and it is my turn to move? I didn't play the best move, but was fortunate to win the game. What is black's best move here?

  1. ...Qg6 looks good to me, but I am not sure, I always miss hidden threats that my opponent has. ...Qg6 has double threat of ...Rxd1 as well as ...Nxf3. Queen cannot take black rook since ...Nxf3 wins queen. Also queen cannot protect bishop at f3(i feel so).

  2. My first reaction was ...Qg6, and it seems it is fine move

  3. Although Qg6 (approximately -2 value per Fritz) is a "fine" move, and certainly better than what I played-Rxd1 (-1.4), the correct answer is Qf4!(-3).

    With the best continuation for both as 23.Nxd7 Rxd1 24. Bxd1 Qd2

  4. To complicated (good for Keres). I would just win with Qg6
