I'd like to wish you all a Placido Domingo (Quiet Sunday) but with England v Italy tonight, I'm not sure that's possible. Ciao.

I used a similar chain. (2-7)r8c5 = r8c6 - (7=2)r5c6 - r5c2 = r7c2 - r9c3 = r9c4 contradiction => r8c5 <> 2; stte.

Without resorting to chains, there is a nice Hidden Rectangle of 45 r48c78 which renders r4c8<>5.

cheers...immp

That may or may not be a Type 6 UR, but I have trouble with the parameters of the higher UR types; the Hidden Rectangle solidifies the proper elimination(s), if any can be made.

If r5c6=2 then r4c3=2, r9c4=2 giving no 2's in box 2
