Which do you think is more accurate ?
1. Queen = Rook + Bishop
2. Queen = Rook + Bishop + Bishop
3. Queen = Rook + Knight + Bishop
none of the above
I say Number 1, just because that is closest to what Chess.com states.
...so it's the least inaccurate.
...and the most accurate.
Nope, the least inaccurate.
No, the most accurate.
aw shuddup Calba
no wonder u guys have that many points
no you Andy
Oh, that's it! Im gonna go all OTB on you!
i think the more interesting question would be Queen vs Bishop pair + Knight
9 vs 3+3+3 but sometimes bishop pair is really more like 7... soooo hmmm
One queen = two Rooks
two rooks are slightly better than one queen in the majority of cases ^.^
would you exchange a queen for these three?
hmmmm, dont think I would.... (points immaterial)
guess I dont have the confidence.
queen is 9 points so the first one is closer
thats what they teach you in the east
A lot depends on your level of chess, so for example if you do not know how to play your rooks to there highest level then the queen will easily dominate, therefore a stronger player will beat two rooks evey time against a weaker player, but then same can be said for a stronger player with two rooks against a queen, every thing else being equal. I like to say a queen is worth 10 pts and rook 5pts to keep the math simple! lolo
