(257)D1 using pairs 3D9E8; 8G7H8; 7G5H5 trying all combinations:
2D1; 3D9; 8G7; 7G5 solves

Saturday 8-Dec-2012


... by: JC Van Hay

In short : testing all the 16 combinations of 13 in Box 6 and 56 in Box 9 (with the help of 29H9, 29F4 and 8 in Box 9, if necessary) yield contradictions using "easy techniques"=(Loked Subsets + SingleDigitTechniques + UniquenessTests), except for DF9=31+G9.J7=56+2H9+8G7->solution.

In details :

a : E78 or E7D9 or F9E8 or F9D9=13
b : J87 or J8H9 or G9J7 or G9H9=56

a1 or b1 -> contradiction
a4 + b4 -> contradiction

a2b2->contradiction
a2b3+29H9->contradiction
a2b4->contradiction

a3b2->contradiction
a3b3+2H9+29F4->contradiction
a3b3+9H9+29F4+8G7H8->contradiction
a3b4->contradiction

a4b2->contradiction
a4b3+9H9->contradiction
a4b3+2H9+8H8->contradiction
a4b3+2H9+8G7->solution

Using only the basic strategies till run-out and then starting with cell J8{245} - bi-location for value 5 - and applying Fariadne's method(as per Puzzle #56).
Forcing J8 = 2 or 4 or 5 gives inconclusive result. Select D9{239} - bi-location for value 3 - to form a 2-cell tuple {J8,D9}. Forcing J8D9 = 22,23,42,43,53,59 gives inconclusive results while 29,52 gives contradictions. Select cell H2 - bi-location in value 8 - to form a 3-cell tuple {J8,D9,H2}.
Forcing J8D9H2 = 227,228,237,238,424,427,428 gives inconclusive results while 221,224,321,
234,421,431 gives contradictions. J8D8H2 = 438 gives a solution.
Using this solution, no 1-cell or 2-cell solutions were found. Many 3-clell solutions were found:
D1D9H8 = 239, E1E7H1 = 597, A8A9B9 = 896.
