Using Crunched's grid above, in blocks 7,8, and 9 there is a pattern of six 259s with one including a 3. Can we assume that similar to a rectangle, the one including the 3 must always be a 3?

Architech, Thanks for the reply. I've just been reading up on ERs, and I'm trying to use this puzzle as a tutorial. I see the strong link in row 3, but I can't see the ER. In your response, you id ...

The "hint" feature tells me that R2C9 is a 2, but I can't figure out what eliminates the 9. This was the daily newspaper puzzle last Friday, and it should not require any advanced technique ...

In a recent puzzle, I had the following pattern, six cells in two rows and three columns:

17 127 1279
17 127 127

Can I always assume the 1279 cell reduces to 9?

Using arkietech's diagram, all that is needed to solve this one is the 69,69,69,369 UR. Not really a VH puzzle.
