As usual, don't know what to call it other than an almost XY-Chain.

(2=4)r7c5-(47=6)r9c46-(6=9)r9c2-(9=2)r8c3=>r8c45<>2

If you want to give it a name you could re-write it as an als-xy wing: (2=6) r7c5, r9c46 - (6=9) r9c2 - (9=2) r8c3 => r7c2, r8c45<>2

Thanks. But one of my problems is that I don't know what an als-xy wing is. :oops: :oops:

An xy-wing is three weakly connected bivalue cells.
(x=y)cell1 - (y=z)cell2 - (z=x)cell3

If instead of a bivalue cell you had an almost locked set resulting in a strong link between 2 of its values it would be an als xy-wing.

(2=6)r7c5,r9c46 - (6=9)r9c2 - (9=2)r8c3

Hope this helps. It is a strong tool for solving puzzles.

Thanks Dan and leren, I'll keep my eyes open and try and see if I can recognize them.
