 I decided to peak into the future at today's puzzle. I have a new blog page regarding some techniques that present themselves well inside today's puzzle. Although the solutions they gravitate towards are probably not the most efficient, they are certainly useful. IMO, research into the patterns/ More... 11/Aug/10 12:03 AM |  |

 1. Basic techniques to UP = 33.2. (6)g8 = (6-3)g3 = h3 - (3=29)h79 => g8 <> 2, 9 => NP(36)g38 => g56 <> 33. loop: (2=5)f8 - e89 = e6 - (5=241)cfg6 - (1=8)f3 - (8=7)b3 - (7=2)b8 =>acei8 <> 2 ; ei6 <> 2, 4 ; f1 <> 1 ; b1 <> 7 ; then basic techniques to completion. 11/Aug/10 1:27 AM |  |

 A long path:1)Start at 23,SSTS to UP=332)YWS: (6)i8=g8-(6=3)g3-h3=(3)h79,=>i8<>33)YWS:(9)d2=d9-h9=(9-6)i8=(6)i2,=>d2<>6,i2< >9.UP=354)(3=25)ac9-(2)b8=(2-8)b1=(8-4)f1=f56-(4=3)d5,=>d9<>3.UP=385)Loop:(1)e6=f6-( More... 11/Aug/10 5:39 AM |  |

 Step 5 to read:5)Loop:(1)e6=f6-(1=8)f3-(8=7)b3-(7=2)b8-(2=5)f8-f56=(5)e6,=>f1<>1,b1<>7,acei 8<>2,e6=15 11/Aug/10 5:51 AM |  |
 same as sotir thru step 3, UP=354.Kraken Cell(279)h2 => ef8<>2, UP=81.(2)h2-h7=e7||(7)h2-ac2=b13-(7=2)b8||(9)h2-(49=2)g12-b1=b8. 11/Aug/10 5:53 AM |  |
 note - solved w/o loops. 11/Aug/10 5:54 AM |  |
 sotir: you can achieve your step 4 with the simpler:(3=2)e7-(2=5)f8-e89=e6 => e6<>3. 11/Aug/10 6:22 AM |  |
 UP=336 X-Wing (de24) => i2<>6 UP=81There were a lot of moves in this puzzle bu all I needed was one. 11/Aug/10 6:23 AM |  |
 just noticed step 3 unecessary:1.UP=332.(6)i8=g8-(6=3)g3-h3=(3)h79 => i8<>33.Kraken Cell(279)h2 => ef8<>2, UP=81.(2)h2-h7=e7||(7)h2-ac2=b13-(7=2)b8||(9)h2-(49=2)g12-b1=b8. 11/Aug/10 6:24 AM |  |
 Bud: that isn't an X-Wing because of (6)e3. 11/Aug/10 6:27 AM |  |
 I went back a tried to resolve it and the X-Wing wasn't there. I had thrown out a bunch of moves the first time and that's probably why the error occured. Sorry 11/Aug/10 6:46 AM |  |

 rwm:I enjoyed reading your continuous loop step. I think that the (5)e89 ..==..(1)f6 relationship is the type of one that is frequently missed. 11/Aug/10 8:57 PM |  |
 1.Given UP=23. UPs at b9, i9, b7, c7, a6, b6, a4, h4, g2 & a1. UP=33.2. If d7-3, then e7=1, e6=3. h7=2, locked 5 at f56, f8=2=b1, f1=8, pairs 45 at f56 which leaves d5 blank. So d7<>3, but d7=1. UP=34.3.If h7=3, then e7=2, g3=3, i2=6=g8=e3=d4, f8=5=e6, pairs 13 at fi6, f6=1, f5=2, More... 12/Aug/10 12:35 PM |  |
