          A game lost because of disconnecting of my opponent 

      After 23...Qxf4 i give mate in a few moves. In this moment i had 1.45 minutes - time enough for a whole game. Just here my opponent disconnected and  the screen became frozen for about 2 minutes . When it normalized at last , i saw message that i have lost the game 

      I must say this is not the first time to happen to me but it is the firs time 1.45 minutes (too much) to be eaten from my clock.

                 A small correction - white win in 46 moves, not in 47

    If Mario and Bowser are the kings then Mario's side would be white.

     #362 can have many solutions,here is the one i have in mind :

      ( for convenience Mario will be from the our side )

          34.Qg4 is may be the best move, but the next Alekhine's move - 34...Rf7 is not the best defence.What could happen if Alekhine played 34...Rg8 ?

    How can the king go there on the first move? Is the board not flipped or something?

    VULPES_VULPES, yes, may be it is because the board is not flipped...

    IM pfren, thanks for your post . I tried this position with Fritz (an old version ) and he (it) gave the same line :
     
    The position looks equal, but i think white have an advantage : white pawn ' h ' can go ahead in comparison with black's pawn ' f ' which is very difficult to move.
    If the pawn becomes to ' h7 ' there could be difficulties for black.What will Houdini say about this plan ?
