Don't Resign Once You Lose a Piece
I've played a lot of games where my opponent would blunder away a piece and immediately resign. This game that I played, (which I didn't play particularly well), is a decent example of why a resignation should only be declared when there's no opportunity to win or draw. If you're a GM, I get it. But otherwise, I believe it's best to keep going. In this game, which I played on another site, I lose a piece after 11 moves and by move 27 my opponent and I agree to a draw. I had White pieces.
