Black to move

position_10
This one is way too easy.

Answer

1.Qh1+ Kxh1

2.Nxf2+ Kg2

3.Nxd3 cxd3

Black is winning from here on, the king and pawn ending, given the position black is a pawn ahead and better position for the king to move forward to the center and push the pawns.

White to move

position_8

Answer

1.Nd6+ Kf8

2.Nxe6+ Kg8

3.Nxc7 (game is pretty much over, black should let go of the queen with Qxd6 followed by white exd6 but that does not change the situation/position that white is still winning)

White to move

position_7

If you have practiced enough then this one should be easy. It is either white checkmates black or black has to give good amount of material.

Answer

1.Qh6+ Ke8 (can’t go to Kg8 because then Qg7# game over)

2.Ng7+ and game is pretty much over Nxe6 wins the black Queen.
