    If there are less than three moves, then you should be able to delete the game. On your my games page you should see a trash can under action I think.

    If you resign, then I'm pretty sure it's just like resigning when it's one to mate. You lost.

    you'll be able to delete the game with pwnage101.

    None of your opponents is anywhere near out of time, the default game time allows opponents to make one move every 3 days. If you wish to play faster you have several options:
    Play blitz - real-time chess, click on the link at the right of the screen under the"logout".
    Don't accept open invites unless they are 1 day timeout, 0 days timebank. Better still, set up open invites yourself with your preferred time controls - and it doesn't hurt to put in the "game name" field something like "fast game" or "5 moves per day".

    This is mainly a Correspondence Chess website where it's a slightly different game from real-time chess. You can replay the game, try out different moves, look up chess books and databases (but not use chess engines such as Fritz); but to offset that each move can take quite a bit longer.

    If you want to play frequent moves, the best idea is to pay the subscription, then you can have as much play as you like.
