SE=7.2 UP to 33
1)XY-Ring:(2=6)i6=(7=2)h6=(8=7)h1=(6=8)i1 =>idf6,g5<>2,i5<>26,g1<>8 UP=35
2)2-chain logic:(4=8)g9-d9=(4-6)d8=(6)d6 or (8)g9=(6)g5 => e5,i6<>6 UP=81

Based on Les's logic:
2. Whether d56=6,e5=1;OR d8=6,dg9=48,i5=8;i4=1.UP81.

A very long path:

SSTS
1)(5): b4=h4-g6=g7,=>b7<>5
2)(18=3)ef1-h1=h3-(3=1)b3,=>ac1<>1
