  samsloan: Here Julia resigned because she loses a piece and/or is getting mater. However she could have hung on a few moves longer. Black is a famous player and former Woman's World Champion.
Jan-18-18  Moszkowski012273: No way. White neither gets mated or loses a piece. In fact it's a quite even position.
Jan-18-18  Muttley101: <Moszkowski012273: No way. White neither gets mated or loses a piece. In fact it's a quite even position.>

What is white's next move please, in that case?

  Dionysius1:'s engine give a line starting 28 ♗xc8... ending in a -0.58 valuation
Jan-18-18  Muttley101: Thanks D, I don't have an engine, and rely on my own assessments. White's position looks bad to me with the loose rook at f1, for example. Depends how you interpret "-0.58"- I have no experience of these things :D

  Dionysius1: Ok. It may not interest you then, but just to answer the point you make about -0.58. In computer engine evaluation terms that means approximately equal, with an ever so slight balance in favour of black. 1.00 means approximately a pawn advantage to white, and -1.00 the same to black.
Jan-18-18  dumbgai: -0.58 is nowhere near decisive so resigning is a mistake. Of course players donít actually know the engine evaluation during the game. If white didnít see the best move then she would have lost anyways.
Jan-19-18  Moszkowski012273: Gonna go over this game with her next time I see her...
Jan-27-18  Moszkowski012273: White flagged here she didn't resign.
