AAARGHH !!!

Yet another win by resignation, and this time (sorry but i have to let them see) it was the last game between me an jtun23 (1feb 08) I saw a lot he could do, a lot i wished he did'nt do and some things i could do if he did the things i thought he would do - but he resigned.

Now, i have made some crazy-ass moves in my days, but still tried to end the game without just flipping my king. Im more of a fight until the end kinda guy, so i guess i can understand those who are not - but its like a boxer that just walks out of the ring. He might walk away from a knock down - but leaves a fighter behind with a whole lot of fight left in him.

Unsatisfying to say the least... So to quote my first blogpost "winning by not defeating" is not as motivating as a mate....

    You should post your games with your comments, it would be easier for us to see what you are talking about instead of having to go to your home page to search the games. :-)

    Okay I do absolutely agree with that. It would've been beautiful to see it all play out... I mean, you practically had a windmill going there - have you heard of that? It's where you use a series of discovered checks to take a ton of material. You're right at the end of the day - he did lose but it's too bad you didn't get to see the windmill go down.

    I did play it some on my analysis board, and yes i would have won on several variations, but its kinda frustrating not to be able to do it you know?

    I just watched your game with jtun23, and sir, he was right to resign. Not only had you taken his queen, but you were about to eat both of his bishops. I agree with you that it would be cool to watch such combinations play out, but that game was over for him anyways. You made an analogy about boxing, well, it's less like a boxer walking out of a ring and more like realizing that all you're going to be is a punching bag.

    If you actually think he had moves left to play, howabout we replay through the game and I'll play your side of the board and you can play his and we'll see if there is anything he can do at all, what do you say?
