The right time to resign a game

At the Bratto International Chess Tournament I saw this position arising from a game played between two strong Class B players (Fide rating between 1700 - 1800). Black has just played 26...Qf1+ ...... and you know what happened..........

White  resigned (???) 
After 27.Kc2 Be4+ (if 28.Kb3 Qb5 draws by repetition) 28.Qxe4 Rxe4 29.Rxf1 Kh8 the game is still open.
