I do not write often; but follow this site closely; not just because of the Sudokus, but especially because of Marty & Keith. I feel like they are old friends since we joined about the same time ...

I am so messed up I cannot even transfer my grid correctly. I had R6C1 as 4789, not just 478; AND R7C4 as 3579 NOT 3578! I truly apologize for not being more careful. I just rechecked, so hopefully ...

This has to be a first that I used less steps than Ted! I hope I did not just mess up "correctly".

I had the same 2 first steps as Danny; then

Usually I am the guy who takes lots of extra steps; but this one seemed to fall apart quite easily for me.

How come you cannot use the Kite in r7/c7 to eliminate the 3 in r2c4? Then why isn't that an XY Chain, starting at r8c7: 83-38-89-97-79-98; & r78c8<>8?

I tried something different using ...

I started with the same XY Wing as Paul; but, of course, my XY Chain was less efficient & lots longer! From Paul's grid, starting at r8c5: 93-31-13-32-24-41-18-89; r2c5<>9. I spend lots of ...

Where's Marty? Documenting these alternative solutions stresses me out! Don't worry, though, I'll fall a couple of days behind soon.

Here is a different course, if it is valid to extend a W Wing. W Wing (78) with strong link (7) in C7. Extending both ends eliminates 8 in R1C9. That opens up an XYZ Wing (137), which eliminates (1 ...

Doh! It's been a while since I've missed a triple which opened up in box 5 because of the kite elimination. Thanks again.

Peter, I have a more basic question. Can you explain your Type 1 UR(15)? I see a Type 1 UR (78); r4c2<>78; but it appears to me, from Danny's candidates profiles, there are too many other poss ...
