Ko or connect?  

Alex Weldon: If ko threats favor Black, I don't see any perfect moves for White, because a doesn't seem to work. The best I can come up with is this. W1 threatens a ko for the corner at B2, so Black connects there, and W3 connects the White group to safety outside, because W1 and W3 have a monkey jump relationship, and so can't be cut apart.

I don't see any way to connect out if White plays W1 at a, but maybe I'm wrong? The problem with W1 here is that if Black has better ko threats, he can play B2 somewhere around W3 to prevent connection, and then W3 at B2 starts a ko which Black takes first.
