How did we get here?  

This W6 was first played by Kitani Minoru. The exchange of B7 for W8 is quite certain; after that, black has a choice of continuations.

Variation a  

If Black plays a from the top diagram, this line is likely to follow (11 at x).

Variation b  

Other possibilities are B3 at W6, and B5 at a or b. The following seems to appear rather often in modern pro play:

Variation b (2)  

Variation c  

And here is the likely result of Black c in the first diagram.
