Gokyo Shumyo, Section 1, Problem 52b / Attempts

[Diagram]
 

xela: I think black can live after W2, but I had a lot of trouble finding the correct move order!

[Diagram]
continuation  

Black tries to make an eye in sente with B1. Of course, black might ignore W4 and run out into the centre, but in that case white can take the corner.

From here there are three ways to proceed.

[Diagram]
variation 1  

Black can capture two stones, but it's only one eye.

[Diagram]
variation 2  

Black tries to make an eye in the corner, but it's gote.

[Diagram]
variation 3  

But after this W3, it's back to the main lines of Gokyo Shumyo section 1 problem 52/Solution, although with a different move order. So white is alive. But it's complicated enough that I may have missed something!

White kills part 1. Comment on continuation diagram  

pitabread?: This should do the trick for white, note the throw-in at 8 that was obscured before because of the unnecessary force-move. Continued:

pitabread?: Black captures two stones but is left with one eye. It's late for me, please tell me if you see something wrong with this. Goes to show how deep this problem is indeed.

Dieter's var  

Dieter: When W2, B3 creates a ko: when B5 descends first, W6 is needed if White cannot win the ko, then B7 lives.

pitabread?: Yes, but ko is good enough for white, considering this is the less ideal variant of the original problem.

unkx80: Black lives, no?

pitabread?: White's reply at 7 is the problem, should just peek in before from the bottom. B can capture at 7 but will only have 1 eye.

unkx80: Can White kill with W2?

kb: Doesn't look like it.
