[Black "JigsawChris"]
[BlackElo "2105"]
[TimeControl "900+0"]
[Result "1-0"]

1. e4 c5 2. d4 cxd4 3. c3 dxc3 4. Nxc3 d6 5. Bc4 e6 6. Nf3 Nf6 7. O-O a6

Perhaps he did not like where the game was going and because it was unrated just bailed out. You can get a menacing pair of passed pawns but I don't think he resigned because he thought he was lost.

He may have wanted to experiment with an opening or idea and that is why he was playing unrated....

I don't think you will find players so quick to resign when they have rating points on the line.

hmm, I guess I should join as a member to track a rating.
