Re: How powerful is the Queen compared to 2 Rooks ?

I was giving my point of view in the statement that Larry made of a Queen versus two Rooks with 5 pawns each, I know that there are millions of configurations but of course that you do NOT want to give a disadvantage position to White with the Queen such as this one, we are talking about positions ...

Re: SF10 excels in Arasan suite: 189/200
