I am sure simpler solutions abound, but this was different.........

Almost xy-chain

{(3=1)r5c1-r5c3=r7c3-(1=4)r7c5-(4=3)r9c4} = {(1-4)r9c4=r9c1-(4=3)r8c2-(3=8)r6c2-(8=1)r5c3-(1=3)r5c1}; r5c4.r9c1<>3

I have forgotten the name of another uncommon pattern but I believe that it is something like "Kraken column".

Kraken column (3)r589c4
(3)r5c4-(3=1)r5c1;
||
(3)r8c4-(34=1)r59c4;
||
(3)r8c4-(3=1)r9c9; r9c1<>1

Here is a wing I found that uses the same cells
Code:

 *-----------------------------------------------------------*
 | 8     5     7     | 146   14    46    | 3     9     2     |
 | 46    46    3     | 9     2     5     | 1     8     7     |
 | 9     1     2     | 8     3     7     | 5     6     4     |
 |-------------------+-------------------+-------------------|
 | 5     9     4     | 7     6     138   | 2     13    138   |
 |a13    2     18    |b34    5     348   | 9     7     6     |
 | 7     38    6     | 2     9     138   | 4     135   1358  |
 |-------------------+-------------------+-------------------|
 | 1346  3468  18    | 5     14    2     | 7     134   9     |
 | 2     34    9     | 1346  7     346   | 8     1345  135   |
 |d134   7     5     |c134   8     9     | 6     2     13    |
 *-----------------------------------------------------------*
wing
(1=3)r5c1-(3=4)r5c4-r9c4=4r9c1 => -1r9c1; lclste

if r5c1 is not a 1 then r9c1 is a 4


I like the almost xy chain also. Very Happy
