I should come back and try this one thoroughly later, but my instinct says black lives trivially.
The block in the center will form an eye if attacked, and denying one eye in the corner with black to move looks impossible. Black at 2-2 gives three eye options. -JH
unkx80: You mean here? But when ataris, I think the only way for to live is through a ko - which is a failure.
I misread the thing. This is the intended continuation, but after 4, it is dead anyway. Back to the drawing board. -JH
Karl Knechtel: Like this, I think.
If takes this eye, lives fairly big.
You're right; the descent is better than taking the other 1-2 point, of course.
