The game was unrated, so why resign?
The game was unrated, so why not resign?
But it wouldn't have affected his rating even if he had lost.
He did lose, by resigning immediately. I get what you mean though
I'm guessing he realized he had something else to do.
BTW, why did you post the diagram if no moves at all were made?
I'm guessing he resigned because I had a higher rating, because I saw that afterwards he played someone with a lower rating.
I thought posting a diagram would have more effect than "my opponent resigned immediately".
haha, just wasting time.
he just didn't want to play why is this a mystery ?
Wait, someone aborted a game because they didn't want to play it?
Egads, everyone quickly, get to the bomb shelter.
He didn't abort, he resigned.
My guess is that he wanted to play rated games and overlooked in first place that this was unrated.
If he aborts too often, he'll get his account restricted. If he resigns, he won't.
Perhaps he only wants to play black, or had to releive himself, or decided it was time to go trolling on youtube for awhile. People are strange.
