Very Old Classic

This classic problem is from the 14 century Xuan Xuan QiJing, which isn't the oldest go manual, but is probably the most plagiarized problem set.

High dan players will instantly recognize this problem, and be able to demonstrate the solution. No one likes a showoff, but everyone else can still enjoy playing through the variations.
