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

    Which side is white?

    May be not white, but green ... Wink

    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?

  • #336

    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 ?

    This doesn't look good for black
