  Sneaky: Wow, there are a lot of games with this motif. So how come I can never pull it off in my own games? :) Where I come from, mating like this is considered highly sneeeeeaky.

  Ken MacGillivray: Yes Eggman; the knowledge of an array of checkmating positions is invaluable, and anyone who has taken "Boden's mate" on board would see 15 ... Qxf3+ in pretty quick time.

  talchess2003: white played this game horribly. e5??? Was he actually hoping for the stupid gxe5 dxe5 Nxe5 Nxe5 Bxe5 Nd4?

When a player hopes for his adversary to fall for a stupid trap, where in turn he only is putting himself at a positional disadvantage where his opponent has a stronger continuation... is the sign of a novice. His center was protecting his king, shielding it from open half open files and diagonals.

  kevin86: Note how coy black was! He egged his opponent to chase his bishop to c5 by attacking the adverse queen at b4. A brilliant Boden's mate!!

To sneaky:maybe it's like poker;you see a lot of straight and royal flushes in poker movies and westerns,but rarely are the encountered in real poker games. Boden's mates are brilliant because they are rare!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Chessical: Why 15...Bh3(?) when Qxf3 is a mate in one?
May-05-08  JimmyVermeer: 15 ... Qxf3 is mate in 2, not mate in 1.
Anyway, in response to mack, 15 ... Bh3 is not such a great idea. Black still has a slight advantage, but he still has a long way to go before mate. Why not take the win right away?

By the way, Black's 5th move is known as the Svenonius Variation.
