Hmm. Clement and I don't seem to have the same starting grid. I think he didn't take the hidden pair in r3c12.

Corrected typos. Thanks, SpAce.

That doesn't work with the correct grid after basics. I don't know how you've managed to place 1 in r5c9, but it doesn't happen with basics alone. On the other hand, you've missed the hidden pair in box 1 (and the resulting 6r7c1), like Steve said, but it makes no difference.

Hi Steve,

SteveG48 wrote:(2=2487)r2478c6 - 7r5c8 = (1472)r3459c1 => -2 r9c7 ; stte

That's very nice (especially compared to my long and ugly solution)! A minor typo in the first node (should be 3), though. I wouldn't normally bother mentioning it, but I've sometimes seen people try to write an AHS that way, which is clearly incorrect. You obviously didn't mean that, but it looked that way at first glance. In this case the AHS approach might in fact be slightly simpler:

(2)r8c8 = (26-7)r35c8 = (7142)r3459c1 => -2 r8c12,r9c7; stte

PS. So you've really adopted the "standard" digit order, as you said you would. Does it feel weird? :) To be really consistent with it, you could write the last node as (7142), because the 7 is the left-linking candidate.

Thanks. I'm making a lot of typos lately. Don't hesitate to point them out. I also got the column wrong in that term. :(

It does feel weird, but I'll get used to it. Agreed on the 7.
