When queen vs queen becomes the endgame target
The target in chess is to capture the queen of your opponent, as per definition. I think it's not always the case. If you are ready to taste the truth, please take a look at above chess set and tell me that you really would prefer to checkmate your opponent rather than ensuring the longest game to trade all pieces one by one and swallow them until you reach for a happy queen vs queen draw.
You offer me a fool's mate on his board? No way. I will eat all your pieces.
