Originally posted by @sigmund-freudI will usually play on in a lost game if I think I can at least make things complicated. Plus, I pull off swindles sometimes. [I also occasionally give some away.]
This has changed for me a number of times over the years.
Recently, I've tried to fight on for as long as possible, and I only resign when the opponent's winning plan is obvious, and I can't do anything about it.
I'm interested to know what others' opinions are in terms of whether it is better to resign as soon as they start losing the game, or fight to the death?
