Captain's story

All of us face from time to time an opponent who continues playing until the very end even after we kill one of his big groups and there is no hope for him to win. And the "best" part is that they always resign at the last move, without accepting the result!


The game above is a typical example of that. You can see that after B127 (H5) White's group is captured and there is no hope for him to win anymore, but Izi 6d (White) decided to keep playing. In the end, Black was leading by over 50 points when White finally resigned... at move 323!


Of course that does not happen only on KGS. Here is Captain's funny story :)


TheCaptain [4d]: I remember a tournament game once where Sunghwa Hong, Author of First Kyu was playing

TheCaptain [4d]: he was about fifty points ahead and his opponent kept using all his time on 1 pt moves

TheCaptain [4d]: they played right to the bitter end and then his opponent reached for the stones to put them in the middle and resign

TheCaptain [4d]: Sungwha grabbed his hand and said, No, you don't resign after wasting an hour of my time..

TheCaptain [4d]: You count!!

Certainly relatable, and a fine anecdote. The game was a decent excuse to tell it. Thanks.

Thank you for your opinion. I am sorry if you didn't laugh with Captain's story.
For the record, the topic and the game example weren't meant to be offensive, just relatable.
Best regards

"News" like this don't belong on this website i think. Some players are annoyed by their own weakness and therefore play on. I don't like that fact, but i think it has to be accepted (though it's a waste of time). Still you should not "namecall" anyone. Stuff like that is just annoying.
Sincerely, Wizze
