  akiba82: An impressive game by Boden. This is the way to promote a pawn. You talk about your kingside majorities!

  akiba82: The position before 31.Qh5+ would make for a nice puzzle of the day.
Apr-05-07  twin phoenix: i concur with akiba. a beautiful game! people just don't play like this anymore. i love the days of the coffee house attack like crazy style. just wish i could play like that... (computers have alas made modern players much more conservative, and probably better...)
May-01-07  wolfmaster: I think that the position after 30...Rxf6
would make a good Thursday puzzle.
Nov-03-13  jphamlore: Emanuel Lasker concurred with this game being an impressive finish by Boden which is why he presents the position after 29. .. Raf8 in the Third Book of Lasker's Manual of Chess, example 40.
