Reading question  

This is a point arising. How dangerous is black+circle here? Can White escape with the four stones? This is not so hard. Charles

White tastes freedom?  

Mef: Perhaps something like this? After W7 White is not only hard to catch, but Black has worries of his own if he wants to save the marked group.

Charles Yes, this works; there are a couple of other variations that also work; and it is quite interesting to assess those in relation to this one. In fact it is harder to find the line that doesn't work!

Mef: Indeed, after giving this a second look, It's probably better for white to just jump out at B4 and forgo the sacrifice.

Orthodox shape  

Charles I think this way can be recommended. With W3 White gets a bamboo joint shape, which is good for jumping out further. Also, White should try to preserve liberties, since White at a can shortly become important.
