Pretending is the road to Jesus, wafflemaster.
lol. I completely agree
Even in correspondence -- I am only conceding that playing on is bad if it's some official tournament (not a chess.com tournament; that doesn't count). If I have a super easy correspondence game, that I don't have to think about very much, surely that game remaining won't be a problem? It's not like it'll drain my brain cells.
I haven't kept up with the dozens of pages of ponz and elubas debate, so I'm sure the theoractical situation has evolved far beyond that, but oh well.
Well, as you can see, it's still evolving...
Btw I must say that Looby is the only player I've ever seen who went from thinking you should resign to not caring whether you do or not.
I really did, Andy. In fact, I was probably bitching about the opposite on the forums years ago.
Still, you do seem to be saying that if it's a real OTB game you're gonna get annoyed...right?
No, I wouldn't.
I am only conceding that playing on is bad if it's some official tournament...
Yes, you would (and did).
I like when my opponent plays to checkmate, because then the game is complete for me. I appreciate when my opponent resigns too, because it's a sign of respect for how I played to get to that position. What I don't like is when people resign far too early. Then the whole game seems fake to me. Like it was given to me.
Oh God, we just lost trysts! She should be posting squirrels right about now, and instead she's giving this thing a serious answer...
I make many errors in life, Tonydal
I sometimes do that to tease my opponents.
