WHY DID IT RESIGN?


Got the above position in a Fritz rated game a few weeks ago.  I was white and it is white to play, black has just played Qc8.

At the time I was very curious to see what Fritz would do as both sides have the same number of pawns and pieces, so I doubled and Fritz resigned.

If this position occurred in a game between humans, black would maybe feel uncomfortable but I do not suspect many, if any would resign?

I had not decided what to play next as white but I was aware there were a few good options.

ECC12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
