Squares R3C7 and R4C7 in column 7 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <17>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.
   R1C7 - removing <17> from <1237> leaving <23>
Squares R1C2 and R5C2 in column 2, R5C5 and R8C5 in column 5 and R1C8, R5C8 and R8C8 in column 8 form a Swordfish pattern on possibility <7>. All other instances of this possibility in rows 1, 5 and 8 can be removed.
   R1C3 - removing <7> from <78> leaving <8>
   R8C9 - removing <7> from <67> leaving <6>

R5C8 can only be <1>
R8C1 is the only square in row 8 that can be <1>
R7C6 is the only square in row 7 that can be <1>
Intersection of block 7 with row 7. The value <9> only appears in one or more of squares R7C1, R7C2 and R7C3 of block 7. These squares are the ones that intersect with row 7. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of row 7 cannot contain this value.
   R7C4 - removing <9> from <679> leaving <67>
Intersection of block 8 with column 5. The value <9> only appears in one or more of squares R7C5, R8C5 and R9C5 of block 8. These squares are the ones that intersect with column 5. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of column 5 cannot contain this value.
