  Ken MacGillivray: The mating pattern is called Boden's mate.
Sep-13-03  Giuoco Piano Man: Is Boden's mate using both bishops to mate then?
Sep-13-03  caseyclyde: It's not just a mate with 2 bishops. Boden's mate is when they are in a criss-cross pattern.

  kevin86: A few more items on Boden's mate:First,it is a cross-fire attack of two bishops;second,it involves a queen sacrifice;and last,it usually occurs on the queen side against q-side castlers-here is an exception.It is an example of a useful AND artful mating combination.
Sep-13-03  dr gogusetti n rao: I am just learning. I always am! Boden's mate is great and artistic.
Mar-27-05  peanut: What do you call then a mate where a King has to avoid both attacks say a rook and a night but has no place to go. He can't even block both attacks!
Mar-27-05  Fischer of Men: <peanut> It would just be called double check and mate.
Mar-29-05  peanut: Sounds too simple. Sorry but im not buying.
Apr-02-05  Fischer of Men: Unless you mean the ♖ + ♘ mate which is called the Arabian mate.
Apr-02-05  peanut: That's it. Thanks for clearing that up.
