    I'm probably missing something but why did IM resign? What if he moves to h7? white can't check again and black queens a pawn. Right?

    i think GalaxyShield has a point .... Ironman blundered twice ....Game 502661

    Blunder 1: 45 ...Kg7?? leaving a forcing winning sequence for white to play; 45 ..Kh7 won the game for black.

    Blunder 2: 46 ...Resignation. .... hungtn seems to be a 1700 player ... as Galaxy very precisely demonstrates: 1700 players will often miss the forcing and winning sequence of moves that were required; Ironman was still in with a chance.

    Ahh, like I said I was probably missing something. I thought the pawn was protecting the bishop hense my confusion. Oh well. But yeah, it mighta been a little to early to resign.
