Welcome to The New Sudoku Players Forum.

There is a set of locked candidates, 5 in R1C4 and R1C6 are the only 5s in row 1. One of those two cells must be 5, so no other cell in block 2 can be 5. The puzzle solves with only singles from there.

194.6.3.7...4....9.....9.64832.9..7645762.9.3916....52.4.7..29.579..264.2.194.73.

Hi Jason,
Thanks for the forum and the quick response.
I've been sudoku-ing in my own little app bubble, so I'm not familiar with the notations you are referencing, i.e. R1C4 and R1C6.

Is there a sticky post explaining that or can you give me a quickie explanation? THANKS!
