When I am hungry

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.

             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?

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.

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 ?
