|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <Jack K> Yes, that book (on Fischer's games, by Wade & O'Connell) is excellent! |
A funny story. I checked that book out - basically for the whole summer.
My overdue library fines ... would have literally paid for a new book! (I played over every single game ... many of the games I went through over and over again. REMEMBER! This was before Fritz ... trying to figure out some of the reasons for the moves used to drive me crazy.)

Does anyone here recall having come across a game with a similar ending? Or is it a generic theme that is seen often in more games than one or two?>
I also beat a 1600+ player in a tournament game - with that same type of motif ... but it was late in the ending.
|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Basically, it was a sack on c6, then a Rook check on b8 ... which won the game.|

<Phony Benoni>'s answer was/IS excellent. I have little to add, other than to remark that there are MANY game collections here that touch on this mate.

Game Collection: Mate (Boden's Mate)
Apparently, your discussion here has caused many people to look into this mate, three e-mails on this topic alone today.
|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Wow! That AWESOME!!!
(CG has already corrected the game, as per my correction slip this AM.)
Good going, and thanks guys!!!
|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: BTW, Fischer's play here is nearly flawless! (Text message from Tony.)|
|Aug-22-11|| ||Phony Benoni: <LMAJ> I'm not surprised to see Game Collection: Mate (Boden's Mate) was by <patzer2>; he has done an incredible job of compiling such collections. Anybody who wants to study particular tactical themes in depth might want to start with his work:|

|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <Phony Benoni> Agreed! :) (Thanks for your informative and helpful posts.)|
|Aug-22-11|| ||Kolyas: <LiFE Master AJ> Have you tried out the Karsten Mueller book on Fischer from last year? He annotates almost every game.|
|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: <Kolyas> Someone sent me that book, although I don't think I have spent much time with it.|
|Aug-22-11|| ||stst: 32.....R(g)xa5
IF 33.R(a)xR Rd1+; 34.RxR PxR queens and mate.
IF 33.R(a)b1 PxR queens; 34.RxQ -- one R vs. TWO would be helpless...
|Aug-22-11|| ||BOSTER: I guess that every step in Fischer's career now is the fascinating tale.|
For me maybe, most interesting is the game which 15y.old B.Fischer played in the final round of the Portoroz Interzonal (1958),Candidats tournament to find challenger to Botvinnik.
When Fischer vs S.Gligoric played a daring idea of Pilnik in the Sicilian Najdorf using the variation that appeared like "a comet in 1955 during "total chess war" and gone down in blaze", entire playing hall was stunned.
|Aug-22-11|| ||sevenseaman: Thanks <Phony Benoni, LMAJ, JoergWalter and ProjectR> I have a great sense of relief. It was in fact E Canal vs NN, 1934 game that was causing me the oppressive 'deja vu'. I had analysed it not more than 2 days earlier. My memory bank is bust, gone kaput for sure!|
I never knew the theme was called 'Boden's Mate', and that there were so many eminent samples in big time collections by people here.
Thank you all, I call it prompt and unstinted help to a soul in distress.
<LIFE Master AJ: Basically, it was a sack on c6, then a Rook check on b8 ... which won the game.>
R+? Which game? Or you just rambled?
|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Just rambling ... it was a fast game, (G/25) ... I did not even bother trying to save the game. (He stopped recording a short time after the opening.)|
|Aug-22-11|| ||alachabre: 32. ... Rxa5 leaves White helpless.|
|Aug-23-11|| ||sevenseaman: Thanks to <Phoney Benoni and LMAJ> I enjoyed <patzer2>'s collection Boden's Mate. A wonderful work that makes Pattern recognition so easy.|
|Aug-23-11|| ||kevin86: I thought al;l of the Boden Mates were LAST week.|

No thanks are due me, but <Phony Benoni> deserves credit for pointing out the details, and <patzer2>'s game collections are simply outstanding!!! :)
|Mar-12-12|| ||screwdriver: After playing through this game, I had to play Neil Young's "Helpless". It seems so fitting after looking at white's position after ...32 RXa5.|

That was awful, just awful. And I love it for 57 different reasons.

I played over the game so as to gently criticize the comment as overly enthusiastic. But, having played the game, I find myself in sympathy! As was said of another World Champ "Alekhine is a poet who creates a work of art out of something that would hardly inspire another man to send home a picture post card". This game exemplifies that sentiment.

Heinz Lehmann was significantly stronger than his brother Shearson.
