Stubborn People and Chess
BlueEyedRook v. NN
Why do people not resign clearly lost games?
Take the position above. How can anyone with a chess rating over 800 lose this playing white -- yet black still plays on.
I would have more sympathy for black if there was blitz match where black can still win by white's time running out, but this is a correspondence match -- and a generous one too with a week or so to make moves.
I understand egos bruise easily (and indeed the player playing black -- no need to give names) is ranked higher than me, but at the same time what is the point is dragging this on?
