Can't figure out next logical move

Postby incutonez » Mon Jul 07, 2014 10:51 pm

I've been working on this one for a while, and I can't figure out the next logical move to make... I really don't know what technique to use, other than guessing.

There is a Sashimi X-Wing on 5, and then singles to the end.

Interesting, I guess I had skipped over that technique... I'll look into it, thanks. I ended up solving it with forced chains. Appreciate the help!

The Sashimi XWing can also be viewed as a Skyscraper. At least one of r7c1 or r8c7 must be 5, so you can eliminate the 5 in r8c2.
