Comment about the daily MEDIUM puzzle of today:

Doesn't white have: 6 Rf8 check?

6. ... Kxf8 7 e7 check winning the queen.
6. ... Bxf8 7 Qxh8 wins rook back.


6. .... Rxf8 7. Qh5 check Ke7 8. Qg5 check

Now I am not completely sure ;-). But 8. ... Bf6 9. Qc5 check

And there might be some transposition to a drawisch endgame, which computers don't really evaluate well.

Anyway, it is a bit weird this variation is not mentioned cause it smells counterplay.
