The late 3-4 corner invasion

I was reviewing one of my games where my opponent played a lot of 2nd line stones during the middle game. But the main thing I want to focus on here is how to live in opponent territory starting with this position:

White has invaded Black and started a contact fight. Black has 4 local responses to White:

  1. “nobi left”
  2. nobi right
  3. hane left
  4. hane right

Let’s dont try to master all of these at once. Let’s just focus on the best White response to each of these. I know them because I’ve played through the variations with the excellent KaTrain software. The question is: do you know the best White response in each of these 4 continuations by Black?
