cenoman, I am not sure I understand how to read your results, but I wonder if there is a typo in step 4.
As noted in step 5, a9 is either a 7 or a 9.

Hi Sarah,

At first, thank you for reading my hieroglyphs!

I have a question to readers like you: you have seen me using the acronym lcls (Locked Candidates, Locked Sets) since a few weeks. I find it fully in line with the designated techniques: singles, naked or hidden; pairs, More...

Oh, cenoman, now that I've done it again, I see that I was looking at your solution for a clue to a next step when I already had 79 in a9. My method includes taking hunches, so it is not based in logic, except that intuition itself is based on some sort of logic.

As for reading the notation, I must admit I am interested mainly in the start of each step to see which choice was in consideration, iow, where I might look for my next decision process.

Hi Sarah
If only your hunch was e7<>9.
You would have it done much quicker.
Intuition is not based on any form of logic.
Cheers Les.

12:25 I agree with you, Jacalmi. That's why I went to Namibia and South Africa last year to see them in their natural habitat.
