Boden's Mate

Postby PaulWeaver » Fri Jun 21, 2013 10:33 am

I executed this rare checkmate on June 8th vs. Herk Ward.

The position of decision was:

white: Ra1, Rd1, Kg1, Nc3, Qf3, a4, Bf4, Bb5, b2, c2, f2, g2, h2
Black: Kc8, Rd8, Rh8, a7, b7, Be7, f7, g7, h7, Nc6, Nf6, Qc5, Bg4

White is a pawn ahead but the queen is under fire. After thinking things over I opted to go with 1 Qxc6+ expecting to emerge with the better game after 1 ... Qxc6 2 Bxc6 bxc6 3 f3. Unexpectedly black blundered with 1 ... bxc6?? 1 Ba6 mate.

I recall I also got Terry Toedemeir 30 years ago in a skittles game with this type of mate but a queen sac was not involved.
