this should do it...(9=5)r3c8 - (5)r8c8 = (5-7)r8c2 = (7-2)r7c2 = (2)r4c2 - (2=1)r6c3 - (1)r6c79 = (1-9)r5c8 = (9)r6c7; r3c7 <> 9

Very good. These are the ones I like - challenging basics with a number of VH steps - as opposed to easy basics with a simple xy wing or easy basics with an overly complex chain solution. Anyway, that's my two penny worth.
