Jun-18-04  nefruu: I am new to, and wondering why many of the games posted do not show checkmates. Rather, many endings are unresolved. Does this mean that time expired? ...I've never been to tournament, and dont know how this works - help, please. Thank you.
Jun-18-04  acirce: <nefruu> Basically, the players usually resign before checkmate because they realize that it is hopeless anyway. For example in this game White will lose a lot of material and he thought there would be no point to play on.
