My Lord... it's impossible.

Now I want to give you a piece of advice.

You played a very good game. & so did your opponent. 

During a game there are lots of factors involved, one that is really overlooked is your energy level. Sometimes you are tired or you are not as lucid as you can be. Sometimes 1 makes a silly mistake, sometimes 1 do a finger slip and the list goes on & on & on...

These are the human factors. We are not machines that can preform the same as long as we have an electric-cord stuck in our... back!

Play your games in an enjoyable fashion. Just remember do not finger-slip. That is really painful. The rest is forgettable in the end. Good luck with your next game!  

Thank you, man !

But I imagine how my opponent laughed loud after game on me... lol

How triumphally he laughed. )

Well this was painful to behold.

Yes.  ) It was a shock.

For a moment I was at loss for words.

I was sitting speechless.

Chess is a great game, really. )

The thing is that you don't see a level of stubborn behavior like this really anywhere else in the world. What makes these chess players try so hard and care about winning in online unrated games will just never make any sense to me and quite frankly: It turns people off to the game. Look how many people came and tried it out during COVID and bounced soon thereafter. No normal, reasonable person is willing to sit there however long it takes to stave off a loss. 

 

I sortof agree with you in many ways but the reason I do is because I also tend to resign because of my playing style, I'm tactical and if I lose it's normally because I go all in with the attack leaving me no chance.... It is a strange characteristic of some chess players this tenacity to fight and actually give incredible resistance in completely lost positions... But I just admire it, I don't see it as being something that puts people off... It's just another thing that adds drama to the game. 

 

Also when you are completely lost often you have 1 move to survive, so they premove this move with lack of interest... to YOU that may seem like they are fighting for their life... to them it's like "damn this stupid game I don't care"... then their at some point their like... "wow this guy is flagging lol"... and at THAT point they become maybe a bit serious about it... But it's just part of what makes the game good. nothing is granted to you

I sometimes ponder on how persistent how some of my opponents are even in losing positions with plenty of time for both sides, even if it does annoy me quite a bit. Part of me thinks "Why haven't they resigned yet? Do they think I'm dumb enough to throw this?" but the other part thinks "Hey, its their right to play on. You need to prove to them and yourself that you deserve that W". As for when I am the one who is losing, I usually just break down and give up even if I just blundered one piece and there is still a game to be played, but I'm pretty sure that kind of mindset is what holds me back from possibilities of making a comeback and gaining experience on how to handle lost positions. But at the end of day, to resign or not to resign is a right and a choice for every chess player. You can secretly be annoyed at opponents who don't resign in losing positions, but calling them names and downplaying their skill for making their choice is disrespectful and downright toxic.

Besides, most online opponents don't even know how good your conversion skills truly are until they see it for themselves. Can you blame them for finding out by playing on?

How could I lose this game !

Computer's analysis said that I had 59+ points of advantage in the end of the game.

Really that kind of losses could cause the psychological trauma.

 

The fact that your opponent didn't resign is what keeps most people away from this game. How ridiculous. WHY do people play these unrated games on here as if their lives depend upon it? WHY is this so important to them? Nobody understands it...

Ah, that's a view. You (not literally you) lost because you don't know how to win, but it's opponent's fault for not resigning.

Incidentally, do YOU know how to win this endgame?

Nope, at my level in bullet, both players play random moves and the game ends up something like this:

 

So no way I'll be able to win this with 10 seconds left (unless it is by timeout)

It's not about bullet, it's about needing 10 seconds to win... That means if you have 1 minute and opponent has 3, if you KNOW what you are doing, by the time you take his pawn you have 50 seconds and he has 1 minute and a half and he resigns... 

 

enjoy! click "continue vs computer, select 1 minute no inc.

Thanks for that, I did it on my second try with 14 sec left

Yes, clocks do that.

The way to win this endgame is to make sure your opponent king sits on the promotion Square then use the extra tempo to bring your king closer to the pawn sooner or later your king will be so close that you will suffocate his king and checkmate him all you have to worry about is threefold repetition and draw by stalemate which does not look likely in this position.

 

The way to win this game is to not let that happen in the first place by not giving up the knight for free with 58. g5. Just play 58. Nc1 Kc3 59. Na2+ snacking the pawn and there is no pawn race to begin with.

 

Edit: The opponent still gets a knight pawn to the seventh in that line, but you have a much easier time getting your king to the magic e2 square without having to dance around with checks.

Yes... yes... I agree.

This was the second simplest way to win in this game for White.

Now do you understand my after-game sadness ?

)

I fast ... found out even third easy way to the victory... after.

Just push my pawn for promotion... one move early than I did it.

What a goofy I am !

I hope many novices will take a good lesson from this my loss... just like one Chess expert wrote in this thread.

For sure.

Some people here are very persistent.

This fact delights me even a little.

They are real Chess fighters. They fight up to the very end. )

And I don't blame them for that.
