Check out the final position where Stellawagen resigned :eek:
Yusupov obviously had no complaints :whistle:

Unbelievable resignation of the century ?

I have read about it on the tourney website. Actually, Jusupov also did not realise that he was losing, till he got home and loaded the position on to his Fritz.

Oh dear. Black's last move was a blunder. There is a very clear forcing line for white to get a good position: 38.Rae1 Qf4+ (best) 39.Kg1 Kg7 40.Qb7+ Kf6 41.Rf1 Rc1 42.Kg2 Rc2+ 43.Kh3 and now black might try ...Rf2. Is this a clear forced win for white though - it certainly looks like it if he can get queens off?

http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/chess2/resigntxt.htm has some nice examples of the "ultimate blunder" (resigning in a won position).

Bill Jordan does esppouse a theory of infinite resistance.
