  wwall: Better was 24.Qxf5.

Black should have played 24...Bc8, winning a piece.

Not 25...Rxe8?? 26.Rxe8+ Nf8 27.Rxf8 mate.

Best may be 26.Qb5 and try to exchange queens.

Why not 30.Qxa7?

Perhaps better is 32.Be2 or 32.Qxa7.

Perhaps White could try 35.Bh6, and if 35...Qg3+ 36.Rg2.

After 25... Qg3+, why not 26.Kf1 (26.Kh1?? Rh5+ 27.Rh2 Qxh2 mate; 26.Rg2?? Qxe1+ 27.Kh2 Rh5 mate) and if 26...Rxf2 27.Bxf2 Qh3+ 28.Kg1, it may not be that easy for Black to win.
