SER=8.3 UP=28
1) Extended H-Wing Continuous Loop:

Merry Christmas everyone

Oops, The eliminations should read:
a3<>6,g58<>1 with UP=29. There is no justification for removing 9 from a3.

2) M-Wing: (2=1)g6-g8=(2-1)i8=(1)h89 => h56<>1
3) 2 chain logic:
(1)h9=(7)c9=(3)a9 or (1)h8=(8)a8=(7)c7=(3)a9 => a9=3 forcing, a8<>7 Or Rule, c245<>7 And Rule UP=35
4) (7=8)c7=(6=7)g7-g3=(6)c3=(8)a2 => a8,c2<>8 UP=81

1. Note g3/i1=16,ef3=35.Unique possibilities to 28.
2. If a6=2=g8,g7=7,c7=8=g5,g3=6,a3=9=b8,g6=1=i1=c9;box H8 has no place for 18.So c4=2.UP36.
3. Whether c3=1;OR g3=1,i1=6,hi7=35;h9=1.UP81.

Old rock formation. That might have been there during the time of the dinosaurs.
