Ending Games I would just like to know is there anyone else that refuses to resign. And would you rather play against someone who would resign or fight to the death?

It depends... Usually at the professional level is proper etiquette to resign than to play on a position which is utterly without prospect of salvation... As Bronstein writes in the "Sorcerer's Apprentice", you should not continue playing in a position in which, but your own personal evaluation of the situation, there are no hopes of saving the game...

Now at an amatuer level, the more practice at endgames the better... Beginners require "proof of technique" no certificates accepted... So resigning is all a matter of which level of play your opponent is at... Begginers will play to the bitter end... Advanced players will respect your play level (that is if you have shown it throughout the game) and resign when they know they have a losing position...

Hmmm... To answer your question Eipee... I would much rather play against the advanced players... In chess clubs I usually ask critical questions like "Do you know how to promote your pawn?" in a King vs King, pawn endgame... If the opponent says "Put my King in front of my pawn" I will resign... But if he doesn't, then that is an opportunity to teach the opponent the proper way of playing chess... But that is only when I am playing in a club atmosphire with novices in the group... At a tournament level there is no question... Resign when you have a losing position... Otherwise you become a marked player (a fish for terms)...
