I thought I would bring this matter to your attention in order to help prevent you from making the mistake of resigning the wrong game (this has recently happened to one of my buddies).
Here is the procedure.
1. You think you have a lost position in one of your games, click on the game you think you have lost and then check the board position carefully to ensure you are looking at the correct game.
2. If it is the correct game then always take that last look at the board to ensure you have not overlooked anything in which you might avoid being checkmated/losing ruinous material or if you are behind in material, do you have a swindle/stalemate ploy you can try out before you hit that resign button?
3. If you think you have no counterplay whatsoever then I recommend you do some board analysis and copy this analysis into your Game Notes.
4. Now hit the resign button and start to compose your resignation note to your opponent. Copy your analysis into the resignation note.
5. My notes usually read like this - Hi ........ ,Thank you for your challenge (if it is not a MT) I am writing to let you know that I am resigning our game on the grounds of ruinous loss of material/unavoidable mate,
viz: - I then give my analysis here.
Hence the resignation.
I will be interested to hear your views on this matter.
I hope you have all enjoyed the Royal Wedding and hope you have an enjoyable Bank Holiday.
Bye for now.
A sound routine...
I must admit to have done some dumb things on GK (including recently - a game still going - studying a move, deciding it was no good, finding a better, then THINKING I WAS PLAYING THE LATTER, played the first move I looked at). Senior moment. Makes one want to kick something.
