    Nice puzzles, solved the first two ones quickly, but also played ...Rf1+ Kh2 g3+ in the third one. There's something about forcing checks that attract my mind.

    kolabear in puzzle 1 after Qc3 Qxc3 Nxc3 Be2 Nxe2 Re8+ white has Be3 winning.

    and in puzzle 3 your line is interesting, Qg3 fails to Rh1+ winning the queen.

    I think white has a perpetual with Rh8+ Kxh8 and Qe8/Qg6

    Heads up, I'm not very good as this game, so any corrections to any possible miscalculations is appreciated.

    First puzzle, after the exchange on c3, Be2?? is a blunder after Nxe2 Kxe2 Re8+. If Kf1 follows, Bd3#. Kd2 is your best option imho, but the king is vulnerable now. You're up a minor piece, so perhaps best is to give it back and castle.

    Second puzzle, I probably would've played it that way, but I was too lazy to look for a solution. Went with you.

    Third puzzle, I calculated Rf1+ Kh2 Qf2, with mate to follow, but white definately could've done something about it with Qg3. Didn't see that at the time.
