Take your stopwatch and solve it !! What is your result? White mates in two. After we solve this many times, someone else can submit other problems, so we can se who is the faster and more accurate!

Almost instantly. (Less than 1 sec.) I'm lousy at tactics, but I've seen this one before. (I guess that disqualifies me, lol.)

Let's say approx 5 seconds per puzzle except for the 4th one.For some reason the 4th took me about 30 seconds

I will put even mates in 7, no problem. This is only easy warmup. You thought it's all I've got?! :-)

less than a second... these kind of mates you should see immediately, and if you don't, train easy tactics (like these) until you do.

I agree, these tactics should be seen instantly.
