 Wow! What a catch! (Jigsaw wrong scale again for me.) 26/Apr/11 12:07 AM |  |
 SE=7.3 26/Apr/11 12:18 AM |  |
 What a fabulous photo!!! 26/Apr/11 12:20 AM |  |
 Seems harder than a 7.3 :1. Unique possibilities to 28.2. If e6=7=d1;column b is devoid of 7.So ef6=12.3. If e8=5=d4,d5=3=a8,d1=7,b1=1,b2=3;box B5 is devoid of 3.So e8=89.4. If h8=8=e9,e7=6,a7=5=i9,a8=3=g9,e8=9=c7;box H8 is devoid of 9.So h8=4.UP81. 26/Apr/11 2:46 AM |  |

 A less cumbersome way for my step 4:4. Whether a7=6=e9;OR a7=5=i9,g9=3,c7=9=g8;e8=8.UP81. 26/Apr/11 3:08 AM |  |
 Less elegant than Alfred and Sotir, but some of the patterns were quick to locate: 1) Start 23 UP 28 SSTS 2) HSR: Rim(137)b12; Spokes (3)e32,(7)e3=de1; Hub e3 => e3<>1259, a13,b6<>1, ac1<>7, c2<>3 3) WWing(37)b6,e3; (3)be2 => e6<>7; More... 26/Apr/11 7:02 AM |  |
 Hi Shiela, some of the jigsaws just dont work for me either..dont fit into the frame or consist of huge pieces!! What's going on?? 26/Apr/11 9:02 AM |  |
 Hi Steve. I don't think you need your HSR step. After e6<>7 and a8<>5, if d1=7=b6,c5=3;d5 has no candidate.(The result of your step 5).So d1<>7, and because f9=9,the 1245 quad at d1/f123 makes e2=3, and UPs to 81. 26/Apr/11 11:20 AM |  |
 13:06 Great photo by an unknown photographer. 26/Apr/11 12:10 PM |  |
 My jigsaw came up with giant pieces too. That's never happened before. 26/Apr/11 12:27 PM |  |
 Here is a condensed version,using some of sotir's and Steve's ideas:1. UP28.2. Whether d45=7;OR d1=7=b6;ef6=12.3. Whether f9=9;OR dfh9=125,i7=5,a7=6=e9;e8=58.UP32.4. Whether b6=3,b1=7;OR c5=3,d5=7;d1<>7.UP81. 26/Apr/11 12:52 PM |  |
 Shorter path for steps 3-4.1)SSTS to UP=282)(7):d45=d1-b1=b6,=>e6<>73)(5=4)d8-(4=8)h8-e8=(8-6)e9=a9-(6=5)a7,=>a8<>5 .UP=324)(7=3)d5-c5=(3-7)b6=(7)b1,=>b1<>7.UP=81 26/Apr/11 7:18 PM |  |
 typo,4)=>b1<>7 to read =>d1<>7 26/Apr/11 7:54 PM |  |
