    Here are a few positions from a three minute blitz game that I played.
    I was black and was quite lucky to win.

    It is amazing how many tactics the two of us missed.

    Try to find the tactics.

    Position 1

    White To Move And Win

    Position 2

    Black To Move

    (It's tactical, but with correct play, it gives black a slight advantage.)

    White has just played exd6. It is black's move and mate by white can not be stopped !!!

    I played Bd5+ which was met by Kg1 ?? Qe1 mate. The side in the forced mating net delivered mate !!! (Very Lucky) It was after all a three minute game. Kf1 or Kf2 both would have forced mate for white.

    are you talking to yourswelf?
    for position 1 i think it's the knight move that forks bishop and queen.

    Solutions

    1.
    1.Nd6 cxd6 2.exd6+ Bg7 3.Bxg7+, followed by the capture(s) on d5.

    2.
    1. ... Nf4+ 2.Kf1! Rxd1+ 3.Qxd1 Bxe4 4.gxf4 Rd8 5.Qe2 Qc6 which gives black a slight edge

    3.
    1.Rxd5 ! is best Bxc4 2.Rd4 Bd5 and again 3.Rxd5

    4.
    1. ... Qc6+ 2.Rf3 g5 !! (better than Bd5)
    or 2. Kf1 Bc5 3.Nxa5 Rxa5 4.Qd8+ Bf8

    true, I have to work a little on notation
    It is amazing how big is the difference when someone is telling you: "find teh tactic" or when you just play the game and you do not know if there is a tactic or not...
    I am trying to tell myself every move: find the tactic, it is there...and still, I am missing so many...
