Tactics: 22 Olympiad Critical Positions

The diagram shows 3 of the 22 Critical Positions in the Olympiad issue of Chess Canada:

GOTW: Leonardi - Ouellet, Baku Olympiad, 2016

The Canadian Game of the Week comes from round 7 of the 2016 Women's Olympiad in Baku. In the diagram, Canada's Maili-Jade Ouellet has Black against Slovenia's Caterina Leonardi. What's better: ...Rc4 or ...Nb4. One wins, the other allows an incredible draw.

GOTW: Martinez - Zhou, 2016 Women's Continental Ch.

Our Game of the Week is Canadian Women's Champion Qiyu Zhou's crazily complicated Ruy Lopez from round 6 against WIM Ayelen Martinez from Argentina.
It is White to move in the diagram. White had played a strong Novelty on move 19 to improve on a Judit Polgar game, and Black (Qiyu) has just played 21...d5 to get some counterplay in the center. What should White play now?
