Wednesday Workout: Dodgy Tactics (Prestigious)

For this very prestigious edition of the Wednesday Workout, all tactics are selected from the recent-concluded Mr. Dodgy Invitational. With games all played online at the time control of five minutes per player, with no delay or increment, the level of precision on display was astounding. And so were the blunders! Enjoy this grab bag of tactics, where one move blunders coexist in perfect harmony with deep sequences.
