While in a game, there will be a draw icon. "1/2" next to that there will be a flag. thats the resign button. Click that whenever u wish to resign.

Really, you shouldn't resign ever. You should (especially when you are new), play it out to the bitter end.

 

Unless you're 1500+ (and really not even then), you should play it out. It's hard for bad players to play well consistently and oftentimes major mistakes in the endgame occur!

You shouldn't resign

I resign if I get two or more pawns down.  Why waste my time having a cat chase me like a mouse?  

I'm not learning as much, demoralization is high, why not resign and start even?  

It cost zero dollars to start again even.  

 

Here's why:

 

Alpha males don't want you to resign, they want you to keep fighting even wounded so they can hone their skills with the joy of the hunt.  That it is contrary to your own interest is part of the fun, if an alpha male can convince you to fight it out with less and less chance of winning, he's (plural, all of them as a group) have convinced you to act against your own best interest.  Yes you can learn from playing someone better than yourself.  Like 10% of what you would have learned using the same time playing against someone weaker, honing your own skills, learning what works, having more fun, yes, you can learn from the bottom of the pit.  You can learn how to be a loser, let grown men talk you into being their punching bag, learn how to be their [censored by moderator].

Resigning two pawns down isn't logical. That's not enough material to be game deciding especially at ur rating. But regardless that's not the topic here.

Resignation is a sign of weakness. One I will gladly except if you're willing to offer it.

We used to have a joke in the club whenever a player looked at a position like he was really confused or concerned and the other guy would get up and say "I accept your resignation." before leaving.
