Question
Hi. When you promote a pawn to a queen does its point level go up if you are deciding a game on points.

Answer
Chess games aren't decided by points.
Games are decided by mate, draws or resignation.
Sadly, in some beginner tournaments inexperienced people count up the pieces to decide a winner.
My suggestion for you is to buy a basic book on chess and learn the rules.
This way you'll be able to separate yourself from those who are clueless.
I hope this helps.
