Nice one, Leren.
There are many moves, which place a number, but dont solve (includung UR 689r89=>r8c3=6)
Finally i found this long chain:
(7=1)r4c249-(1=5)r679c8-(5=7)r37c3 => r3c2,r5c3<>7

A different two step view using ANSs ......

1: ANS(2368=1)r9c7892-(1=5=8)r7c38-(8=6)r9c8 => r9c3<>6

2: ANS(2578=9)r8c2891-(9=3=1)r26c1-(18=6)r6c68-(6=8)r9c8-r7c8=8r7c5 => r8c5<>8

Nice move, eleven (its another als xy-wing) but unfortunately it does not fully solve the puzzle - it needed 1 more vanilla xy-wing .

I found another single step als xy-wing move but it uses the same set of cells as my first move, so its not worth posting.

I'll once again subject myself to public humiliation and post a three-stepper.

Oops, so yet another one, which does not solve.
