Hi Les. I can't follow your logic today. After b4=8, a3=8 and no contradiction yet?

Best Regards, Alfred.

Site puzzle. lcls to 32
1. (1)d1=(1-8)d4=(8-4)b4=e4-(4=2)d5 =>-2d1 lcls to 35
2. (9)g8=(9-3)g4=g6-(3=8)a6-f6=f9-(8=5)i9 =>-5g8
3. (8=3)a6-c4=(3-5)c2=hi2-g1=g6-(5=238)ab6.c4 =>-8f6 singles to 81

Hi Alfred,
Note: UP 32 as confirmed by Cenoman.
If f6=8 then this leads to a3 and b3 both being 8. Therefore f6 cannot be 8. i.e. as stated ab3<>8.
I found the puzzle falls out with UP's thereafter.
Cheers Les.

Tough #545. I got it down to 7 nontrivial steps after the initial X-Wing: 1 Y-wing, 1 cycle, 2 aics, 2 krakens, 1 dynamic aic (which could be replaced by a 3rd kraken).
SE 8.4
#1 SSTS to UP27
w X-Wing (1)ai19 -> -1a3568i38.

#2 Y-Wing (9)df9=(HP(39)-2)df7=e8-(2=9)g8 -> -9g9; More...

typo #3 cycle (3=4)g5-(4)e5=(4-3)a6=df5-g5 -> -34defi5,-9a6

e5 should be a5:
#3 cycle (3=4)g5-(4)a5=(4-3)a6=df5-g5 -> -34defi5,-9a6
