White strongest attack? Black 8 at 4  

Ed?: This looks to be white's strongest attack at the top gaining a ko for the group. W7 could be at 'a' but may be safer here. White has a lot of ko threats. If B4 at 'b' white wins by playing at B6.

tderz: Ed, I think you're very strong in problem-solving.
I guess the players did not see the ko.


Black has enough liberties? 7 below 3  
Black has enough liberties? 2 to the right of 1  

Ed?: Black seems to have more than enough liberties to finish white so perhaps I'm missing something.

tderz: ... or perhaps they (white) saw the ko and decided >that she needed definitively to kill the black group.
Indeed the players proceeded as you suggested in your last diagram.

the position now  

tderz: Ed, now my question to you, how should black proceed?
At a glance, say in Blitz, what could the possible outcomes be?
