When you click the X on a Play game tab, it means you want to abandon the game. You will then see the Abandon current game dialog above. If you choose the Keep playing button you can resume playing the current game as if the X was not clicked.

If you wish to Abandon the game you first need to decide how you want the game abandoned. Here are the options:

  • Save as 1-0 - Game will be saved as a White win
  • Save as 0-1 - Game will be saved as a Black win
  • Save as 1/2-1/2 - Game will be saved as a draw
  • Save as * - Game will be saved as an unfinished game (no result assigned)
  • Don't save - the game will not be saved

HIARCS Chess Explorer examines the current position and makes the default selection the one it expects you will want to make

Choose the appropriate game outcome/action and click the Abandon button to abandon the game.
