:w2: below is also interesting. White tries to create the alternative of an eye in the middle of the board to play/protect the vital point at B5 in sente (in order to live by then connecting at B1). However, :b3: allows Black to play B5. If White tries :w4:, :b5: continues to threaten B5. If White plays "a" instead, Black answers with "b" still threatening B5. If White tries "b" instead, Black plays "a" and can still follow up with B5! Personally I found this more interesting than the tesuji, which I learned from a dull tsumego book. ;-)

Needless to say, if Kirby has some other clever resource for White, I was too lazy to find it as usual!
