I click resign because I thought I lost, but right afterwards I saw I won! It would have been a victory by a large margin, too. Oh, man... I have to show it so others will learn from this mistake and not be so quick to click resign!
P.S. The really stupid part was that I played 32... Bb4 so I could move the Rook if need be.
Omg. I recommend writing a script that removes the resign button for you!
To be fair, this is a common mate pattern. I think this is one example of where doing chess puzzles/exercises/reading can trick one.
I've had it worse. I resigned when I had a mate in 1. I was being so overwhelmed by my opponent that I felt like resigning earlier in the game. That's why it's very important to play with a cool mind and think twice before resigning. I definitely learned my lesson that day.
Yeah, resigning right before mate is worse.
By the way, black missed their mate on you, too. It was technically avoidable, though.
30. Ree1 probably isn't fair, but I thought there is no way to stop it at that point.
