I resigned a draw position... I think
I won several games which I wanted to resign but continued to play from various reasons and was awarded by the opponents' blunders, but the moment has come for me to do this - to resign in a position that could have been saved. (I think.)
gameknot; I was black; 5 days + 2
1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 ...[text shortened]... 7th line and resigned but piblic computer shows "-0.44". I am still blind here.}
GM Lars Bo Hansen told me in a class that from +0.25 to +1.50 means white is better/has an advantage, but he does not consider a game as truly lost until about +1.5 or so.
I am (of course) paraphrasing and and dramatically abbreviating his comments (he is most certainly not so simple about it), but it surprised several of us in the class, and led to a lively discussion.
He was talking in the context of OTB chess, but I think he would be OK with its application here, as a slower format with endgame references aids the defense.
