Chess Training for Grumpy Geezers
Wow - that's a position straight out of the tactics books. It's a very pretty mate, isn't it? :)
Very pretty! A friend suggested it has a name. Blackburn's Mate?
Boden's mate.(Blackburn's is similar - two bishops with the king in the corner and a pawn on h2/h7)
The name of the checkmate pattern is Boden's Mate. You can find another example of it, albeit not forced, in the first problem in October 2 "Lesson of the Week", which is from a brief victory that I gained at the Eastern Washington Open last October 1.
Thank you!Boden's mate has, starting now, always been my favourite!
Yup, Boden's mate. Look at those bishops working well above their pay grade.
