The clamp - not so good  

Tapir: I tried W1 in the game, since Black answered at a it worked out well... but after B2, W1 doesn't look that good.

11,12,13 at a, b, c.  

Herman Hiddema: This has some potential, although I think the best white may get is seki, and perhaps not even that.

Black to move...  

Tapir: To my kyu eyes there is only one big eye. And I don't know what Black can do against white filling it up with dead shapes. B1, W2, B3 seems to be seki. B1 at W2 seems to live unconditionally, for white has to play inside now.

Black to move...  

Dave: This looks like a better approach to me. With or without the exchange of B1 for W2, Black plays B3 and I do not see how White can make seki. Black has too many outside liberties.
