The Long Sleep

When do we admit defeat, when do we quit? In a game, a major loss is experienced (Queen taken), the situation is bleek, hopeless, or is it? I've played in games where my counterpart continues to play and it becomes clear the game is lost, yet checkmate must be forced. In other games, the player quits and the position offers possibilities. Where do we draw the line. An opinion, when the game reaches a point of low option we as chess players (for the good of the sport) should end the game with respect and the proper thought. A LOSS is not a reflection of self but of the match. When its over, it's over. Rematch is the option, the right thing to do. Play on!!!
