Post subject: Why resign? Reply with quote

There used to be a common rumour that you loose more points if you resign instead of playing it till the end.

The opposite is true. You win more points if you resign games you cannot win anymore. The reason for this is simple: if you play 2 hours GM on a day, you will be able to play more games if you resign the hopeless ones.

And more games always means more points in the long run.

You forgot to put there the option: "Sometimes I resign when I obviously have no luck and get mad". Laughing Laughing Laughing

DC's that in my opinion is the only reason. Short of the wife saying you are done on that stupid comp. and it's time to go to bed.
