When is the best moment to resign?

Personally I don't mind if someone resigns on me. It's a feeling of victory anyway. happy.png Just happened twice in a row on daily games.

I think the best time to resign is when your primary game plan is to lose quickly.

And yet I've seen GMs resign purely because they were 'strategically' lost. In fact, it's incredibly rare to see a GM game play out to checkmate. It does happen, but very rarely.
