Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return

2) Throwing things away

3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else

4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

Resign?

C'mon, the situation is clearly hopeless. You've only got a couple of pieces left and the king is cornered (true, eh?)

Seriously Guy, you haven't forgotten about the game have you?

A draw?? With Queens still on the board? Boooooooooooooooooo

Yes, you are right... Well it's up to Guy, the offer has been made. He is about to lose an exchange so this is a fairly generous offer.

PS To be honest I am just very busy ATM, to really do justice to this game. It's been taking a lot more time than I thought it would, because I am so rusty.

Thanks, Guy!

Well played!

Catmoon, sorry you won't see the end of this game - pretty sharp so far. But if you're game you can finish it with someone else. Both white and black have plenty of chances left I think, with black at a slight advantage.
