    Yes folks, lets wade back into the swamp of "Why doesn't my idiot opponent resign/Why does my idiot opponent keep asking me to resign?"

    True RHP game. My clanmate KJCavalier striped off the names of the guilty parties.

    You are up a Q+2R+2Kt+6pawns. I mean you could win this one blindfolded against Jesus, right? Well....no.

    ouch... I move on auto pilot too in such situations, I think the correct approach would be turning off the auto-pilot automatically once all pawns are locked or gone. and checks of course, you can hardly go wrong with checks with that amount of material 🙂
