Tsumego From Games 34

  Difficulty: Advanced   Keywords: Life & Death, Tesuji, Problem

Alex Weldon: In my fifth game of the 2004 North American Oza tournament in New York, I botched a sequence in the corner. I'm Black in the diagram below, and had just played the marked black stone, which was hamete, because the marked White stone was not actually present in the real game so the result of correct play will be better for White than if I had exploited the weakness of the stones on the right. Nonetheless, it is what I played (and my opponent responded incorrectly, so I got a great result).

White to avoid being tricked  

So, this problem is White to play. What is the best result he can get? All ladders are good for Black, and you can assume that the black stone on the right is strong, and connecting to it would be sufficient for life.
