The importance of castling in proper direction
This looked like a nice puzzle
to play and win.
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.
There is a fantastic puzzle on this link :
An interesting way to relax ... from too much thinking too...

White to play and win in 47 moves
A small correction - white win in 46 moves, not in 47
Which side is white?
May be not white, but green ...
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?
An old analysis gives 34...Rg8! 35.fg6 Kg7 36.Rd7+! Bxd7 37.Qxd7+ Kxg6 38.Bd3 with a winning attack. Actually Houdini is sure this is equal: 38...Kh6! 39.Qh3+ (if 39.Nxf6 then 39...Qxf6! 40.Qh7+ Kg5 41.Rg1+ Kf4 42.Rf1+ Ke3 43.Rxf6 Rh8! with a small advantage to Black) Kg7 40.Rg1+ Qxg1+ 41.Kxg1 Nxe4 42.Bxe4 Rac8.
