    Why must it bother someone whether a game is won now, or 3 days/weeks/months from now?

    Just move on happily with your other games, and allow people to play within the agreed upon time controls - as is their right - with respect

    Join the Masters of Zen, enter the Chess temple and you will learn that all form is emptiness and that patience is bitter yet its fruit is sweet!

    I chose to resign on a lot of my games. So that way my rating will go lower and I won't play games too much for a whole year and that way I can sandbag a lot of tournaments. And actually play people at my rating level so technically I'm not really sandbagging tournaments!

    in all future tournaments I'm in that he is in I will re-sign against him. I refuse to play players who do not re-sign and or open up in the same first move all the time show some variety.

    you have no jurisdiction over what move someone chooses to open with and you should be formless like water, simply ready to adapt to whatever form your opponent takes. Also he is perfectly within his right to prolong any game, irrespective of the position, you should learn patience and use it to reflect.

    There is no I in chess - Robbie - Zen Master.

    Are we talking about game 10416866 here. If so, Black has a perfectly playable game and I think has the best winning chances .

    Nothing to do with the fact that after g4 your position is completely lost ? Which incidentally.. he could have played a couple of moves ago.
