I was black.
Another pointless resignation thread...
I agree. Nobody owes you a resignation. Checkmate them.
I think this is more 'he resigned, and I don't know why.'
Good point, didn't even look at the position.
Yes, it is.
Absolutely not! If it's White's move, why on earth would he resign? He has plenty of counterplay. What's the point of playing chess if you resign every time you're a little worse?
Well, if White did resign here, just because his position is a bit worse, he doesn't have much of a future in chess
I was surprised my opponent resigned here. I mean, he's behind but I'm no master, I don't think it's a hopeless position, only 1 pawn down.
Seems like white is in trouble, but I don't know that it is hopeless.
It may also have been a frustration resignation if he felt he made a mistake, or just wasn't playing well, or something may have come up and he needed to leave.
I wouldn't have done...nothing too threatening from Black.
I can't see why - are you sure he/she didn't hit that button by mistake & was too embarrassed to admit it ?
Who knows ? You got the game so don't worry about it.
Well on the internet regardless of the site i have people resign right out of the opening with an even position only because the opening play didn't go the way they had planned ! But trying to explain the motives of why people do certain things on the web is generally a waste of time , you could be playing an 8 yr. old and their favorite cartoon came on .

Actually, I like White's position. He can play Kh2 to protect the pawn, followed by e4 to develop the other bishop or bring his rook over to help guard the half-open g.
Sometimes active pieces can be worth material (hint hint).
