Beginner Move Function Problem 2

  Difficulty: Beginner   Keywords: MiddleGame, Strategy, Problem

The second in the series, again, chosen at random from my games on KGS. Black to play. Please match the moves a through g with the functions given below:

What function do the marked moves have for Black?  

1) Attempt to run out to the center with a weak stone.

2) Destroy shape, threaten to capture stones.

3) Enclose potential territory, create an open skirt for the opponent.

4) Kikashi - a forcing move.

5) Endgame move to reduce territory.

6) Create a loose, large-scale moyo.

7) Lightly reduce (keshi) a white moyo.

Bonus: Which of these moves are/aren't worth thinking about at this point? (Even I wouldn't be confident to say which is actually the best - in fact, the best is probably none of the above)
