  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.
Nov-08-03  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.
Nov-08-03  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!!

Nov-08-03  mack: How good is 15...Bh3?

  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.
