Sometimes I am losing... sometimes I know the end is coming soon but I will not resign even when I am bullied for it. Why? It can happen something like this:


There are a couple of reasons why I try not to resign:

  • Maybe it is a way of grasping my mistake by enduring the pain of the loss
  • Maybe my opponent deserves the flavor of a checkmate¬†
  • I can learn how others end the game
  • Sometimes I end up winning the game with fewer pieces
  • Their clocks might run out of time
  • Their ISPs might fail and disconnect them
  • Sometimes they get greedy or they blunder into letting me without moves. Giving me +0.5 pts
