Dieters Mistakes In 2022 / Problem 33 - Bugcat's Idea

bugcat: All of the suggested options allow the integrity of the upper centre to be compromised. I didn't want to allow that. I suggest this hardnosed defence.

If Black attacks at c in the stem diagram, we can first exchange W4 - B5. Black can't block at tengen because of the ladder.


Now, though, I'm not really sure what I want to do. I'd like to force this battle, but it does feel a bit crude. White has moves in the x zone but it's hard to time them.

It'd be elegant to begin with W3, since the white follow up at B2 is strong. But then Black can connect at W1 and White's counterplay seems to have been reduced.
