3363 enclosure  

This enclosure does a rather obvious job, of taking corner territory securely. White can play at a to try to press it low.

The beginnings of shape  

If Black 2 and 4, White can start to build eye shape with 5 - this play may come later, White treating 1 and 3 as kikashi.

avoiding being forced  

Black commonly plays 2 to avoid a second forcing play. But White can then leave her first stone here for the moment.
