I have played chess for years, though only sporadically. After I retired from the army and went back to school, I started playing on facebook, which led me to this site. I still consider myself in the beginner stage but I hope to improve.
If I see a position as intractable I will likely resign; please don't take offense. I am not trying to deprive you of a crushing victory. If you would rather play it out, just ask, and I will oblige. I think generally finishing a losing game is a bit of a waste of time; I am not going to hope you make a blunder in the endgame. I'd rather resign and start another game.
That may be why my end game is weak...
