The king goes to g1 and loses straight away. Going to e1 was the only alternative. I can't se any immediate win for Black after 25.Ke1.

Timman, in his book Art of Chess Analysis, called 11...e5 "consistent but bad".

  jith1207: Yes, I thought Nd4 and Nf3+ by black after Ke1 would be a threat but after Ke2 and Qg4, white could ward off the queen by h3 and g4, so engine offers draw by repetition as the best solution.
