2 is ideal

It’s both really. It’s a good move just by itself, and there’s an obvious trick to avoid right afterward. I wasn’t sure how to express that. I’m happy to mark it ideal if there’s a general feeling that it should be changed.

Both really is the similar feeling I had with https://online-go.com/joseki/36079

In the original post example, I would say that if 1 is not a Trick then neither should the other moves or vice versa. They all have a similar element of TRICK in them.
