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

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.

  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...

  Messiah: This pun is horrible. Nice game, anyways!
May-14-20  MordimerChess: The game Horwitz-Popert above is a very bad quality fake, made by low skilled player. So far we don't know the full record of the game, even Edward Winter tried to find it but failed.

Anyway this is my video analysis and commentary of Schulder vs Boden: https://youtu.be/gXGE-X2U5C8
Enjoy & learn!

Yes, he's THE Robert Schumann, the famous musician! This was really a nice compliment to Samuel Standidge Boden, to demonstrate the Boden's Mate avant-la-lettre.

Sep-12-22  Chessius the Messius: Composer
Sep-13-22  vonKrolock: Yes, composer above all... (References to Chess in his published writings - His personal notes with some chessical diagrams were rediscovered this Century). A pity we have no complete Game score so far... could be a Schumann vs Brahms for instance, why not
