Always build closed Pull Requests

Can you explain how "Always build closed Pull Requests" option works?
I thought it will allow me to build master branch after pull request has been merged, but it doesn't work in this way. So I have to use "push" trigger on GitHub and "build only master branch" option on AppVeyor.
So the question is what is "Always build closed Pull Requests" for?

    Pull request (PR) build is build of "virtual merge" of changes made in head branch as if they merged into base branch (usually master). PR build answer the question "what if I merge those changes into master branch". If PR is closed, this usually means that answer to this question is not important anymore. So when AppVeyor notified that PR is closed (via webhook), AppVeyor cancels all running or queued builds for that PR. If you need PR builds to finish even when PR is closed, you use that setting.
