Ted, I'm still left at this point after performing your two steps.

Danny, Sorry to say, but I agree with you that the second step does not complete the puzzle. Not sure just what I did because I was in a rush and did not write good notes. My guess is that instead of making the noted deletions, I set r1c9=7, which does complete the puzzle.

Also in looking at the puzzle again, I realize that r2c8 should have been deleted by clean-up following the first move.

Hopefully I will have some time later this evening to complete the puzzle properly..........

Ok, here is an additional step which I believe completes the puzzle, based on the code posted by Danny.

anp(23=4)r8c98-r56c8=(4-3)r4c7=r4c2-(3=2)r3c2; r8c2<>2

The complete three steps are

Kraken x-wing(2)r68c89=(2)r8c2-r23c2=r3c1-r3c6=r1c6; r1c9<>2
anp(47=2)r1c97-(2=7)r9c7-r7c9=r1c9; r1c6,r2c7<>7
anp(23=4)r8c98-r56c8=(4-3)r4c7=r4c2-(3=2)r3c2; r8c2<>2

Following Ted's example! A different uglier and targetted almost-turbot for a one-stepper...

Peter, you may call it ugly, but I like it when it does a better job..........

Settling for just one of the eliminations makes it less ugly ... and preserves the one-stepper. Using your notation style ...

Ronk, much nicer thanks! Should have seen it - but once you go down one line of thinking sometimes hard to see the alternatives

The finned Swordfish exposed some important basic steps prior to the subsequent advanced steps!
