How to react to Qb5 check?
How can black win?
How to continue?
How to attack?
What is the strongest move?
How can black increase the pressure?

If you would like to improve your calculation I suggest you 2 great courses:

Tactics Ninja: Something unbelievable and funny. The editor Lily, being 1,200 on, raised her online rating by 100 points in 2 weeks, just by looking through the videos of this course when she was editing them.

Mating Matador: Mastering mating patterns is the next step to get better at tactics and become a dangerous attacker. It often bridges the gap between a strong attack against the opponent's King and victory. So once you become better at sniffing checkmates, your attacking skills naturally improve.
