Would You Resign in Positions Like These?

SnowyTheWolf
You play white. You see that your opponent is obviously better than you. It is even a daily game. The chance of him blundering are obviously under 1%. Even if he promoted to a queen and blundered that, he could still get another queen. Do you resign right then and there because you know you'll lose? Or do you play on just for the sake of it? I don't like the thought of making my opponent annoyed that I'm delaying the inevitable, but then again, I have a right to play till the end. What do you do? I resigned as a main reason for not having a chance yet there a sometimes I don't do this. I want to know what others do. happy.png

Also, if anyone has a better topic to put this in, let me know please.

I would probably resign at that point. but if im playing with a friend, i'd keep playing

If it was a live game I would play on... the chances of white drawing are pretty high if its in a daily game I would.. still play on and find the best move.. 

SnowyTheWolf

Hm. Good answers. Still thinking on this one. Thanks.

I would probably have to say that I would play till the end  but that's my opinion 

SnowyTheWolf

The OP is discussing an ongoing game, that is considered cheating.

Not going on anymore.

You guys are all so competitive

It is considered being a gentleman to resign, if knowing to lose.. But the debate goes, is it sportsmanship to play untill the end? In every other sports, one plays till the whistle blows, you don't see pro teams leaving the field when down 8points, or 3goals with two or five mins to go..

🙂 It is pending..

What do u mean

I always play to the end, no sense in giving up. You have the right to play to the end, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. He could always timeout or stalemate you.

I got stalemated in a daily game. My very first game on Chess.com, actually.

Wow, nice!! Yeah, that's why you never give up!

I've never been lucky enough to win on time or by stalemate in a game like this but I certainly have been on the other end of the spectrum. Case in point: https://www.chess.com/daily/game/145781410

Literally a mate in 1 in a 5 day game and I timeouted. sad.png Never give up!
