|May-24-11|| ||Llawdogg: Wow! Sac, sac, mate. With criss-crossing bishops.|
|Jul-13-11|| ||Oceanlake: Edward Lasker vs Fritz Englund is an amusing example. A deep sigh of relief followed by....|
|Jul-13-11|| ||Sho: The famous Boden's mate: even (or especially) patzers know of it.|
|Jul-13-11|| ||HeMateMe: Those double Bishops against the Q-side castle position. If White had had tactical training software, he would have seen this one coming...|
|Jul-13-11|| ||nolanryan: in case ur wondering, one person's name is boden and the other person's name is schulder and the pun prob means that schulder is annoyed by boden. funny one!|
|Jul-13-11|| ||Libispusher: the pun stuff is way up on this one. hilarious.|
|Jul-13-11|| ||rilkefan: <the pun prob means that schulder is annoyed by boden>|
I think the pun is on "burden to shoulder". "Boden" is not so far from "boyden", a la newyorkese.
|Jul-13-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: One of the best CG puns in quite some time.|
|Jul-13-11|| ||chrisowen: Game nine-gligent ye-swing Mista Men in-black it hood pulled-pawns fill centre f5 breaks-in coup-de-gruesome bump bishop in tickle mate it strong happy done Morphy Nautilus!|
|Jul-13-11|| ||playground player: Because so many beginners use it, and without much success, the Philidor is an underrated opening for Black. Which is a good reason to use it! (After learning its finer points, of course.)|
|Jul-13-11|| ||kevin86: Wow! The original Boden Mate!!|
|Jul-13-11|| ||www.pellresearch.com: Why 9. ... Bd7 then 12. ... Bf5? Isn't this wasting a move?|
|Jul-13-11|| ||theodor: 14.Bd4|
|Jul-13-11|| ||www.pellresearch.com: 14. Bd4 Nxd4
15. cxd4 Qxd4
and the same situation as before, with black threatening the bishop on c4 and then queen to c3.
|Jul-13-11|| ||sfm: It was so easy for Black, because anyone knows Boden's mate.|
|Jul-13-11|| ||Phony Benoni: Everyone keeps saying this game was won by Boden's Mate. So why is it listed under his name?|
|Jul-13-11|| ||DrMAL: Moves 3-6 on both sides were a great example of mutual inaccuracy, worse than 9.f4 but not as bad as 13.O-O-O that vied for the unbrilliancy prize 14.Bxd5 ran away with!|
|Jul-13-11|| ||WhiteRook48: that pun is... so ... bad|
|Aug-22-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: 13.d5!|
|Nov-28-11|| ||IRONCASTLEVINAY: i think this mating pattern is known as boden pattern ,no?|
|Apr-01-12|| ||Infohunter: <sfm: It was so easy for Black, because anyone knows Boden's mate.>|
Easy to say after the fact, but Boden himself had to find it while playing over the board.
<Phony Benoni: Everyone keeps saying this game was won by Boden's Mate. So why is it listed under his name?>
Because this is the game wherein Boden discovered the pattern.
<IRONCASTLEVINAY: i think this mating pattern is known as boden pattern ,no?>
Right you are--for the reason already stated.
|Apr-01-12|| ||Phony Benoni: <Infohunter> I was trying to make a pun on the alternate meaning of "Mate". It was obviously not a good one if I have to explain it.|

Oops! Don't blame yourself, <Phony Benoni>; my thinking was just too tunnel visioned to see that you were making a pun, which is so very obvious now that you've pointed it out. Sometimes I just focus too narrowly: I remember a few months ago when Boris Becker played a losing game of chess against a recognized master <cg> tagged it as GOTD with "Tennis, Anyone?" In my post I wondered what the "tennis" connection was, not thinking at all about Becker's real profession. Boy, did that make me feel like a yo-yo!
|Sep-04-12|| ||Llawdogg: Boden's Mate!|
|Jan-16-14|| ||dernier thylacine: To Pica-Pica:
an other example of exact Boden's mate pattern, but the possibility was unfortunately missed:
Dmitri Urusov versus Ilya Shumov, in a game played in the same year 1853 in St Petersburg, as Phoni Benoni mentioned it...
