Code: Select all
`*-----------------------------------------------*| 1  89 23 | 36-2  368   *29    | 7   4     5   || 4  89 23 | 7     358-1  5-129 | 129 129   6   || 6  5  7  |*124  *14    *1249  | 3   8     129 ||----------+--------------------+---------------|| 8  23 1  | 5     9      6     | 4   7     23  || 7  34 6  | 8     2      14    | 5   139   139 || 5  24 9  | 14    7      3     | 6   12    8   ||----------+--------------------+---------------|| 23 1  5  | 2349  34     7     | 8   6     239 || 23 6  4  | 1239  135    8     | 129 12359 7   || 9  7  8  | 1236  1356   125   | 12  1235  4   |*-----------------------------------------------*`

The next step would be a naked quad (1249) in the 4 cells marked * in Box 2. It solves r2c6 = 5 but not the whole puzzle.
