Samuel Boden[ edit ]

Samuel Standidge Boden (1826 - 1882), was an English professional chess master.

The mating pattern "Bodenīs Mate" was named after the mate that occurs in one of his games, Schulder-Boden, London 1853

There is also a line in the Philidor defense named after him, based on one of his games against Paul Morphy.

Morphy was of the opinion that Boden was the strongest English master, even though Barnes had a better record against him than Boden.
