Itís of minimal interest but, for what itís worth, I also got straight to Leoís grid in the very first post with its conjugates for 2 in column 7.

I think I can.

If you run your eye along row 5 you will find it intersects five boxes. Letís call them A, B, C, D and E from left to right.

In traditional style the implication snippet would be:

r4c9 ≠ 6 => r78c9 = (16) => r8c2 = 4

Keith referred to an XYZ-wing 56-9.

I suspect this is pivoted on r3c9 and does the trick.

Thatís the flightless wing. To take off, check the possibilities for 2 in rows 4 and 9.

The grid is riddled with a bewildering number of deadly patterns so itís easy to miss the most helpful.

To avoid a (567) in r456c19, 2 must be placed in r4c1 and singles follow.
