  • I would take the two rooks in that situation.
  • I am pretty sure that it doesn't matter. The queen will probably be able to continuously check the other king to force a draw. I'm going to play it out for a bit and get back to you. Yeah, I've been doing some testing and I don't think that the rooks can win. It might be possible for the queen to win.
  • Two rooks. With the Queen you can only force a draw, whereas with the Rooks I'm pretty sure you can get checkmate at some point.
  • Two rooks. If they are protecting each other - you are going to be able to get a draw at the least (unless you are in a very bad position). If the rooks are not protecting each other and the player with the queen has the next move, then in many cases they may be able to check a few times cause a fork and capture one of the rooks. However, it would still be difficult to mate against just the one rook. A King protecting a pawn, which protects a rook is enough to force a draw agaist a king and a queen. (The queen needs the help ofher king to mate - the rook can prevent the king getting near your king).
  • Two rooks would be extremely strong against a king. You can probably force a check mate more quickly with two rooks than with a queen, since you can usually limit the moves of the opposing king with much more ease. In other words you can conner him more easily.
  • K+Q vs. K+R+R is a draw, except in very unusual positions.
  • 2 rooks +5
  • Two Rooks. They can work together.
  • i havent played chess since i was a kid
