Well... it is far better than the move "resign" for sure, like many other moves he just played the worse, it direclty lost the game.

This guy is just bad, why even start a game if you cannot just put a peg.

Well, different people have different philosophies, strategies, and emotional reactions to games... even with a simple abstract game like Twixt.

Personally, I give 100% effort no matter who my opponent is. If they are ranked lower than me, I want to shut down the possibility of an upset as soon as possible. If they are ranked higher, I want that upset. Some people slack off in those situations. That is not a winning strategy.

I am pretty sure White resigned a winning position this game. It might be hard to prove. I don't see a good answer to |13.p16 ... maybe there is one; I just don't see it.

It might be interesting to have TwixtBot analyze all the Twixt games on LG and pick out what it thinks are resigned winning positions. I wonder how common it is. Then again, that might be mean.

well no, last white move was stupid, so you don't have better than something like this then...

|13.p16 14.m19 15.p19 16.p18 17.o17 18.n14 19.p15 20.p13 21.r12 22.r10 23.s10 24.q12 25.q14 26.s8 27.p12 28.n4

And other last moves for black but seems clearly winning for white.

I try my best to play good games on Little Golem...but you are correct I may have possibly resigned in too many games...but also I have been attacked on Littrle Golem for having done so...

Don't take it as an "insult" from me, it was more something to "boost" you, to say "hey man, just play, just fight!".

Nobody can improve by resigning, it is always sad for me to see that.

I am sure that you are far better than this, the key is to try, to fight and maybe you gonna find some moves.
It is not even a question of winning or losing, if you resign everytime you imagine you are behind in a game, you cannot improve.

Enjoy man, have fun, this is the most important (-;

But don't resign ^_^

I don't know why but... when I see someone resign I got some frustration even if I am not concerned, it's a little ridiculous.

Sorry if you were offended by my words, my bad.

I am also sorry, but there arise many problems for me playing on this site....but I will remain and play more games.
