Christmas Presents! (Part 2)

Hi guys sorry for the recent inactivity, am tied up in my new job so I can only write on weekends. Anyways, since Christmas is round the corner, I may as well give the presents early:

Position 1: Black to move

Position 2: White to move and mate in 3

Position 3: White to move

Position 4: Black to move and mate in 4

Position 5: Black to move and mate in 3

Position 6: White to move and mate in 2

Position 7: White to move

Finally here's an interesting endgame position where White threatens checkmate in 1 (I assume you CAN see it!), and Black must find a tactical blow in order to survive.

Position 8: Find the best move for Black

Have fun! (:

  1. Bd5+ for puzzle one, win a rook.
    Puzzle 2 requires a bishop check, then a rook check, then a knight smothered mate.
    Rook trade then c4! for puzzle 3
    Qxg2 Rd1 Rxf1 Bxf3#, puzzle 4
    Nxf3 Qxg1 Rxg1#, puzzle 5
    Qd5, cxd5#, puzzle 6
    Bb2! wins in all variations. Bb2 Qg6 forced, Bh5 wins the exchange
    Rc5 and Bg1 attains a draw.
