You'd think, after 52 cells being resolved by Givens and Singles, that a puzzle wouldn't be too difficult if it didn't need chains. Yeah, right!

Code:
 +-----------------------+
 | . . . | 2 8 9 | . . . |
 | . . . | 7 . 1 | . . 2 |
 | . . . | . . . | . 8 7 |
 |-------+-------+-------|
 | 8 9 . | 6 . . | . 7 . |
 | 7 . . | . . 3 | . . 5 |
 | 3 5 . | . 7 . | 9 . 6 |
 |-------+-------+-------|
 | . . . | . . 7 | . . . |
 | . . 7 | 9 . . | . 2 . |
 | . 2 8 | . 1 6 | . . . |
 +-----------------------+

Now, I bet you are looking forward to my posting from Set G again. Very Happy

Lots of grunt work, but not real difficult. And yes, I did count 52 solved cells after basics.
