hp is indeed correct!

The 3-wing on 1 followed by setti on 8 also works well, but needs tue x-wing-based reduction of H9 to 14.

CE on one diagonal combined with x restrictions made the breakthrough. Nice, thanks!

Hard work for me.


A SI at the bottom right cleared the diagonal.

After standard work and bent X-wings on 6s, H2 in conjunction with diagonal F6-J9 and Column 7, quickly cleared high and low for row F.

I was stuck for some time. A careful consideration of the possibilities in col. 6 lead to the solution. A very nice challenge!

Definitely the hardest one of the 5 puzzles this week. While the other 4 were rather 'easy', this one was a real challenge . Thank you once more, Andrew and kst
