Should one ever resign in a game? Having recently watched: Searching for Bobby Fischer, I was alarmed to note that Josh's Teacher encourages Josh to feel contempt for an opponent, and to hate them; also, that Josh should always WANT to win. This made me feel rather uncomfortable as to whether I should resign or not if I am in a bad position, since in the back of my mind sits the idea that the opponent want to win and that they hate me! Should I resign and not waste their time? (Just like what I did in the attached game?)
