Tactics Tuesday: To Gift or not To Gift?

We continue our Chess Life Kids Openings Project's exploration into themes of the Alapin anti-Sicilian by looking at one of the most popular themes in club-level games played in this opening: the Greek Gift sacrifice. Of the hundreds of thousands of Alapin games played every month on Lichess.org, thousands feature the famous "Bxh7+" sacrifice. But not all of them are good! This week, every puzzle features a position where White can play Bxh7+, and the question is whether White should play this move.
