Jul-13-11  Sho: The famous Boden's mate: even (or especially) patzers know of it.

  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.

  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.)

  kevin86: Wow! The original Boden Mate!!

Jul-13-11  sfm: It was so easy for Black, because anyone knows Boden's mate.

  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?

  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.

  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...

Apr-21-14  Mating Net: Samuel Boden deserves all the accolades for being the first to uncork this thunderbolt mating pattern. Well done Sir!
Oct-02-17  Christoforus Polacco: <sambo> Nice finish.
Oct-02-17  ndg2: Samuel Boden would be proud if he could see his mate pattern so marvelously applied. Oh, wait...
Aug-20-18  yaecinn: Horwitz - Popert, Hamburg 1844
