Chess/promote points


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

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.
