   R2C6 - removing <8> from <2489> leaving <249>
Squares R1C8 and R1C9 in block 3 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <14>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the block.
   R2C8 - removing <4> from <468> leaving <68>
   R2C9 - removing <4> from <468> leaving <68>
R1C9 is the only square in column 9 that can be <4>
R1C8 can only be <1>
Intersection of row 5 with block 5. The values <29> only appears in one or more of squares R5C4, R5C5 and R5C6 of row 5. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 5. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 5 cannot contain these values.
