No advanced moves required; solved by triples and pairs(basics).

Every time someone posts that it was basics only, I tell them to do it again. I followed my own advice and still got the same answer.

I wonder if the software at fault. Maybe it can't recognise 69 79 67 as a "naked triplet" But would recognise 679 79 67 as one! I have just tried it on Draw/play(advanced) and sure enough it does not see the naked triplet!

Marty,
Yes,that is what I did, I have to repeat it to assure myself. Actually it is my first time to encounter a VH puzzle solved by basics since I joined this forum.

I guess that dampens my clever two-step solution colouring on 9 and 157 xyz wing. Sometimes the advanced steps are easier to spot than the triples.
Anyway Happy Victoria Day !
