Lost cause? I think everyone would agree that white is in a dominant position here: board #351669, but do you agree with the resignation? I was surprised...

cause is lost Let's see…white is up two pieces and three pawns with passed pawns on the "c" and "d" files. King is safe and sound. I'm surprised black waited this long.

Re: Lost Cause Not surprised at all!! One of the "chess courtesies"
is to resign when it becomes obvious that the cause is lost. I have played many an opponent that
would keep playing till checkmate. I guess in the hopes of me "blundering". At quick glance Black's
position is indefenseable.

... Players that won't resign in given losses really takes much joy out of the game- I can't see it any other way no matter how hard I try.

When I'm in a too bad position I resign- I got outplayed, fine! I would never let anyone checkmate me unless a, I missed a one move mate or b, a sacrifice, leading to mate, deserved being played out.

Thanks! I understand that it is a matter of courtesy, but I think I would have waited a bit longer.

Thanks for your input, everyone.
