It is important to see that the second of white's moves cannot be played first.


Black secures two eyes in a way prevented by the solution.

Attempt 2  

The circled point is not an eye, so the trick is to falsify the eye marked with a square by playing W1.

Attempt 2 continued  

W1 threatens with atari, so B2 fills it in, and W3 kills with bent three shape.

Attempt 2 continued  

On the other hand, W3 might be better off killing this eye. But then Black can play at either a and atari the marked white stones.

Attempt 2 continued  

This looks like bad play for black so I doubt this is the solution.
