Of course, the pawn got captured, so your witch is fine. But it's still weaker without the queen.

McGoohan

Maybe you could turn it around and say that a queen with a witch is worth much more than a queen without a witch. I think the combination possibilities with the witch increase the value of the queen by far more than one pawn, as long as there are tactical possibilities with the witch. 

McGoohan

Comparable to a bishop pair, whereby the bishop has more value due to the synergy than a single bishop.

didn't think the bishop was worth saving

McGoohan

I meant the Bishop and Bishop pair in general and not in relation to this game.
