    Is there a proper time to tactically resign the game or is it just a matter of realizing you’re going to lose and giving up?

    One should never resign until it is absolutely impossible to win. Once you are sure, then of course it is okay to resign.

    Sometimes my opponent tells me I have lost for sure and he is either wrong or I am not sure that is true, and if that is the case I will usually say something like, “You are probably right but I am going to roll just to be sure.”

    Once you have lost for sure there is NO REQUIREMENT that you must resign, but it is generally good sportsmanship to give up if there is obviously no chance.
