Code: Select all
9.1.5.....8...9.2..5.7.6......4..6....6.9.74...46.2......5.8.1..7.9...6.....6.3.4

Are you familiar with the hidden pair technique? I was able to solve the puzzle using singles, locked candidates, and hidden pairs.

Hi JasonLion,

It seems that even though I solve sudoku for about 10 years sometimes I'm blocked.
I wonder why ?

Can you link me to some white pappers on those techniques.
