    If the white had moved to 27.Qxf3 and got the black knight   instead of the white move 27.Rb5,  the white could have been better.

    27. Qxf3 b1=Q+ 28. Kg2 Rxd5 29. Qxd5 g6 30. Qd8+ Kg7 31. Qd4+ Kg8 32. Qxa7

    Or

    27. Qxf3 b1=Q+ 28. Kg2 Qb6 29. Qe4 Rd8 30. Re5

    Not g6, but h6.  Then there's no fork and the pawns should hold.  My queen covers the b pawn and the diagonal that leads to my king after Kh7.  If the White queen leaves the e4 square, then I have a check and can slip to somewhere useful. It's hard to win from here, but at least it's not lost and I can say I sac'ed my queen.
