B1 captures the marked stone, which makes the first eye and threatens to make two eyes on the left side. After W2 connects the solitary white stone, B3 makes a second eye around a.


Although B1 looks promising, it doesn't work. W2 threatens to cut off the left side from the rest, so B3 is forced. After W4, black can make only make one eye. White will destroy the other by playing at one of the a points.


emeraldemon: I think this B3 also works, making a and b miai.

When White destroys the eye on the right, B3 secures enough room for two eyes. There is no killing shape and more than enough liberties.
