So what should I do?
Obviously this was a huge turnabout in the game, and my opponent is rather insistent I should resign. My guess is that he may have clicked "move" but then saw the open rook and tried to click the "back" button and go after it... but that doesn't explain 56b.
I understand that I was losing, but I'm not certain I should be obligated to concede the game because of his error. Advice?
I have had an experience like that
I did a move, pushed the button "move" and saw I could have done a better move. So I clicked the "stop" button and was happy to see I had still the old situation. (I thought)
I checked the position again and made my improved move.
When I got the answer of my opponent I saw to my disgust that my first move had reached him (without my knowing); he had answered my move without me knowing that. My improved move came on top of that. The situation was hilarious because the moves were totally absurd in this sequence.
We had a good laugh and settled for a draw. Maybe an option for you too?
