Double Kraken column (2)r136c8 & cell (3456)r4c7
(2-4)r1c8 = r56c8 - r4c7 = [(3)r7c8 = r8c7 - (3=5|6)r4c7 - (562=4)r4c569 - r56c4 = (4)r7c4] - (3)r7c4 = (3)r1c4
(2)r3c8 - (2=1)r3c2 - r2c13 = (1-9)r2c9 = r7c9 - r9c7 = (912)r139c2
(2-3)r6c8 = r7c8 - r8c7 = r8c6 - r2c6 = (3)r2c1
=> -3 r1c2; lclste

Subsets alone are not enough here; but adding (3D) bivalue-chains will do the work:
