Another one that you shouldn't over-think, but isn't trivial.

Code:
 +-----------------------+
 | . . . | . 6 1 | . . . |
 | . 6 . | 3 . 2 | 1 . 9 |
 | . . 2 | 9 5 . | . 6 . |
 |-------+-------+-------|
 | . 5 1 | . . . | 9 . . |
 | 2 . 3 | . 4 . | . . 7 |
 | 6 7 . | . . . | . . . |
 |-------+-------+-------|
 | . 3 . | 2 . . | . . 1 |
 | . . 9 | . . . | . . 2 |
 | . 2 . | . 1 . | 4 9 3 |
 +-----------------------+

Well, I really, really struggled on this one. The naked quads were my nemesis.

After completing the puzzle, I read the other posts prior to submitting my comments and noted that I seemed to follow the same path as Keith and Norm. However, I also used a transported pincer to get another deletion from the xy-wing, which may not have really be required to finish the puzzle.

I used six steps: Type 1 UR on 23, XY-Wing on 458, two ERs on 4, Hidden UR on 15, X-Wing on 4 and an XY-Wing with pincer transport on 584.

Just the kind of bend-but-don't-break puzzle that I enjoy.
