Find the Only Move

These positions arose in Simon Williams' commentary on Gelfand -- Nakamura 2010 in his video "Hikaru Nakamura Teaches the KID" on Chess.com.

The first position arose in three games. Once, White found the correct move. FM Delisle Warner was White in that game, scoring an upset win against IM Kevin Denny.

The second position comes about a couple moves after 22...h4 instead of Nakamura's 22...Nh4.

Finally, Gelfand could have stayed in the game with the right move in this third position.

Can you find the only move in each position?
