    Would you prefer to lose your queen early in a game to a player 300 points below you or a player 300 points above you?

    depends on your grade... for me being a 1400 ish, much rather the 1100 person getting it

    Why would you prefer losing your Queen. Don't lose it next time. It makes your King lonely, unless if you can promote a pawn and make him a new Queen. O that King, his a playa!

    Depends on your rating. If I were rated 2300 here and I lost my queen to a 2000 player, I would know that he would be able to take advantage sufficiently to win the game. Whereas, playing at my actual level, losing my queen to a player of 900 rating wouldn't be nearly as bad, because I would be relativly confidant of being able to get it back or getting suitable compensation.
