Position 1
White has good control of d5 and will likely castle next and then double rooks on the d-file. What do you suggest for black?

Black to Play


Position 2
White has active piece pressure in the center as compensation for a pawn. What do you recommend for white now?

Position 3
Tense ending has been reached with both sides having passed pawns. Black has the more active king which makes advancing the a-pawn a problematic plan. What do you recommend for white now?
