    Best I see is for Red to play a probing move at 3-1.

    If blue defends the corner (plays 1-1), red plays to 4-3, threatening to live with 5-1. If blue blocks that with 5-1, then red plays 6-4, after which connceting out at 7-6 and living with 5-2 are miai.

    If blue does not defend the corner, but defends the side instead by playing 5-1, red can can then live with 2-1. He could also first play 7-6 (threatens 6-4) forcing blue to block with 8-6, before living.
