I heard some player have resigning and right away, i've done it with a player here, rated 1353. I did not see his queen was attack and tought only moving my king, so I resign.

Originally posted by Mariska AngelaI don't have a problem with that. A lot of people on this site think players are being unethical if they do not resign a lost position. I've played a lot of games where the opponent would not resign a lost position. Many times they are not being unethical; sometimes they want to play it out just to see how the opponent thinks.
Happens all the time. You just need to make one mistake and it could turn your win to loss.
My coach always tells me to continue fighting until the end, but I have no patience.
