There are various ways of attacking this one, but I liked what was an "almost" UR Type 6 on 12 in r56c58. Most likely it is merely a deadly pattern on 12. So I went with Paolo's method of finding a possible contradiction. If R5C8=1=>contradiction =>-1R5C8=>solution. A good following rinse leaves a Type 1 UR on 68 in r25c45, with the extra candidate of 5 in r2c5 (which can be placed). stte

cheers all, and great puzzle Clement...immp

This is where I used the Type 1 UR on 68 in r25c45. r2c5<>68(=5!). There is also a possible BUG+1 on 2 in r1c3, in which r1c3=2.

thanks again Clement...immp

Initial elimination using AIC leaves a UR like immpy
Code:

| 6     ha4-3    g245 | 128     1258    9   |b235    28      7    |
+---------------------+---------------------+---------------------+
| 19      2       19  | 4       7       3   | 8      5       6    |
| 7       5       3   | 1268    1268    128 | 4      12      9    |
| 4       6       8   | 9       12      5   |c237    127    d23   |
+---------------------+---------------------+---------------------+
| 5       47      24  | 3       248     278 | 6      9       1    |
| 28      9       6   | 12      124     127 | 257    3       2458 |
| 1238    347     124 | 5       9       6   | 27     278     248  |
+---------------------+---------------------+---------------------+

(4=3)r3c2 - r3c7 = r6c7 - (3=2)r6c9 - (2=5)r1c9 - r1c3 = (5-4)r3c3 = (4)r3c2 => - 3r3c2 leads to
