Go Puzzle Sundays

Let's kick it up a notch for this week's Go Puzzle!  This one is actually not hard once you see the solution, but it might take a long time to figure it out.
Black to play

I know, it looks like White is alive, but he has some weaknesses.  This is one of those cases where the first move is everything.

Last week's solution
Black 1 makes an eye in the corner.  This problem relies on your knowledge of false vs. real eyes, because you might think this is the right move but worry about your second eye in the center.  Nothing to fear!
