Is that you holding a voodoo chicken as your profile pic?
actually, voodoo chicken is wearing the shades, and has turned me into a bird, and taken over my body.
Thought you reminded me of rmurray.
I am one of those who likes exchanging queens early in the game. Of course, it depends on the position but I admit I prefer playing without queens. The reason is quite obvious - my queen is my weakest piece, i.e. a piece I am not very good at playing with.
me too. I find my queen high maintenance, and I prefer it when both queens are off the board. Granted, I'm not very good at using my queen.
I only exchange queens if it will put me in a much better position. Just cause my queen and my oppenents queen is aimed at each other, I won't rush to trade off queens, unless if I trade them I will be in a better position.
Because they cannot wear the same clothes everyday.
When I read abt the title? Change queens? How? Then I realize that it's abt exchanging/ trading the queens. hahahaha ...
I know that OP has high rating. But I don't agree with him that trading queens will kill the game. Contrary, it makes the game more exciting. We will see the skill of players without queens. I think those who play with the queen on board have to improve their skill. Can they checkmate without it?
There are many tactics combination can be implement if you have queen on the board, that why probably player who is not to sure about his tactical abilities exchange early. I prefer both, with queen or not. If white, im sure i want queen as long as possible because i like to attack then to defence.
It takes away the potential of being checkmated by some degrees.
let´s talk about this guys, many people here in chess.com are tryin all the time in game change queens, in my humble opinion this kill the game . The reason why i play chess is because of the queen, is the only piece you can move all places in one move. This annoys me deeply , this catenaccio style should be punished. We are here to have fun , enjoy the game, we gonna have time to play a rook ending, but don´t change me the queen in move 15, please.
¿ what do you zink?
We change queens because we are good at endgame!
Sometimes the Best decision is to Trade queens for example when you have an endgame advantage.
I do not aim to trade queens. Mostly i try to have more than one. It is called promotion, so it must be good :-)
Having more than one queen at a time is complicated. And sometimes they don't like each other.
my peeve is people that en passant
Yes! And they do it right in front of everybody. Alekhine once did it standing on the table. Outrageous!
If you think chess is all about the queen then you don't know much about chess.
That's why his rating is only 2300!
He's just goofing, Scott.
I Knowww! I was thinking at first that it must involve a medical procedure
It's part of the game. Exchange pieces of equal or better is justified and acceptable.
