Once in every chess players lifetime: resigning when winning

June 23, 2015

This blog continues the occasional theme of what every chess player should experience once in their careers.

Today: resigning when winning.



The above was a blitz game, last few seconds of a typical scrappy 3 min Morra gambit, and I resigned. With a bit more time, or some composure, I would have found 1 Rh7+, when the lines are not too hard. The main one is 1…Kh7 2 Qh5+ Kg7[] 3 Qg6+ Kh8[] 4 Qh6 mate.
