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!

 

1500+ OTB or online?

 

I don't play IRL.

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. 

I've seen that when people are losing their games, they start to give up and play worse. Chess is a psychological game, and this does occur. Two pawns might be too much if you're losing positionally as well as in material. 

I agree that two pawns isn't enough to resign, especially if I have some level of compensation. A piece down in the opening is where I would resign.

And for beginners, we always have stalemate.

I see reasons for both dependent on stage of game and opponent

Welcome! It's OK to resign once in a while. btw, if your opponent does not resign but instead just disconnects, that is often because there's no button for Rage Quit yet. bq.png grin.png
