25...g5 I assume. Then 27...Qg5 loses the exchange.

  plang: 25 Kg2? was an error that Black could have punished with 25..g5 26 Qxa7..Bd5 and the bishop on h3 cannot be saved. After 27..Qg5? Black lost material; better was 27..Nd5 28 Qxh7..Nxe3 29 fxe..Bxd4 30 g4..Qxb5 31 Bxd4..Qe2+ 32 Kg3..Qf3+ with a perpetual. After 37..Bxg3 38 fxg..Qxg3+ 39 Qg2..Qxe3+ 40 Qf2..Qxa3 41 Qf4 White would have been winning.
