  wwall: After 23...Nxe4 24.Rde1? looks like a mistake (White should just play 24.Bxe5 and 25.c4).

After 24.Rde1, instead of 24...Rac8, Black can hold onto the pawn with 24...exf4 25.Rxf4 Qg5 26.Qxg5 (looks forced) 26...Nxg5 27.Rxe8+ (27.Kh2? Rxe1 28.Bxe1 Nf3+ wins for Black) 27...Rxe8 28.Bf1 (or 28.Kh2 Re3) 28...Re3, and Black should be winning with the extra pawn.
