My 45.N*2d was a bad move. It should have been Rx6i instead. If you took my N on 2d by Sx2d instead of 46.S*1b, you should have won the game because there was a mate line to begin with B*4g and you could respond to my Rx2d by L*2c which would be also threatmate to be followed by B*4g. Overall, your attack was very good. And giving up your R on 6a was a nice judgement. Only one thing you should learn from this game is that castling your King is important before attack.

Thanks for the game. If you captured my pawn by Px2d instead of 42:Gx6f, then it shoud have been uncertain which to win. After 42:Px2d, one variation would have been as follows; 42: Px2d P*2g 43: S*2c Gx2c 44: Px2c+ Kx2c 45: Rx2g K3b 46: G*2c then I had 3 choices to escape my King to 3a, 4a or 4b. It should have been very difficult to read through up to the end.

Thanks for the game. Instead of 12;S-6d, R-7b should have been better. S-6d is a good move when my left silver goes to 6g.
