Never Resign

This has always been my motto for chess when I play between people on an actual chess board or and electronic board. "Never Resign! Even if you know you will never win" 

 

Not only is it a loss for yourself but for the other player as well. When you play a person in a match of intense or casual chess, you often come across many situations when the game seems hopeless and it is just worth giving up instead of witnessing your downfall. 

 

Resigning would seem like the safest option after the player rejects a draw. I will say it clear right now...it's not! You are actually loosing your pride giving up on something when times get tough and the opposite player does not get to finish what they signed up for. They get an automatic win which is not exactly bad but both players miss a learning experience. You could have stayed and lost, but won a lesson for next time and record a scenario that you would try and prevent from then on. 

 

I recently saw someone else post an article about why you should never resign and I quickly wrote this article backing him up on his stance. Resigning is not worth the loss. You are causing heavy loss for both players. Learn from your mistakes. Don't hide from them.
