Resigning in a Won Position

If you want to improve your chess results, it is very important not to resign when you are winning.

In my last game of chess, I was playing White and resigned in the position in the diagram.

How could I have ensured a winning advantage?

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that White wins with 1. c6! bxc6 2. Kb3 and Black is surprisingly helpless to stop a4 and Nc4+ without losing his Bishop.

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
