GOLDEN NUGGET V3

 

Golden nugget v3 is a start of the solution focused on the exocet pattern

Golden nugget has an exocet pattern shown here in blue

 

Direct effect of the exocet is to reduce r8c9 to 1247

 

The elimination potential of the floors 1247 does not show more.

But we can do a little more using UR deadly patterns

The key “induced” URs are r12c3r12c7 and r12c5r12c7

 

We try here to apply the “abi” loop to clear part of the scenarios.

 

47r12c7 showing the “abi” loop

  4r5c3 =        7r8c3

          7r6c5 =       4r8c5

  4r4c2 = 7r4c6

                 7r7c1 = 4r7c6

 

  47 r12c7 is not valid

    no ‘4’ or no ‘7’ in row 3 

 

27r12c7 showing the “abi” loop

  2r6c3 =       7r8c3

          7r6c5 =       2r9c5

  2r4c1 = 7r4c6

                7r7c1 = 2r7c4

 

  27 r12c7 is not valid

     no ‘2’ or no ‘7’ in row 3

 

Remaining scenarios

12r12c7 14r12c7 17r12c7 24r12c7

 

The last possibility with ‘7’ is 17r12c7 giving

<7>r1c7

 

For the time being, I stop here.

We are far from the end, but we have done very simply what was shown in a very long development in the former version and we have the same knowledge at the end.

 

I’ll work later on that position to see what can still be shown based on the exocet properties;
