    No, i think White is down too much material.  Since I see no way to defnend the rookk, White will be down a rook and a piece.  I think this position is worthy of resignation

    It depends...

    Is the position lost ? Yes, without doubt. Actually, you can even take the b6 rook off the board, if my opponent has enough time on his clock, I still resign (one more piece + a4 passer = easy 0-1 at my level)

    Is the position worth playing on ? It depends. If you do not know how to mate with one more queen, you might want to learn.

    Again : it depends.

    If :

    1-you know how to win with one more queen

    2-you are sure your opponent knows that too

    AND

    3-you realized you lose a queen

    then yes. Otherwise, no.

    This second puzzle I believe is mate in 2 after the forced Kf2 then follows Qh2+ and both Ke3 and Kxf3 result in Qe2++

    Nice spot !

    (Black is winning even without that, of course)

    So the answer is no : let your opponent the pleasure of playing this nice mate, that's what make chess beautiful.
