R6C7 is the only square in column 7 that can be <7>
Squares R4C7 and R6C9 in block 6 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <68>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the block.
   R4C8 - removing <8> from <158> leaving <15>
   R6C8 - removing <8> from <158> leaving <15>
Intersection of row 3 with block 2. The values <15> only appears in one or more of squares R3C4, R3C5 and R3C6 of row 3. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 2. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 2 cannot contain these values.
   R2C6 - removing <5> from <4568> leaving <468>
Intersection of row 5 with block 5. The values <568> 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.
   R4C5 - removing <58> from <1358> leaving <13>
   R6C5 - removing <58> from <1358> leaving <13>
Squares R4C5 and R6C5 in column 5 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <13>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.
   R3C5 - removing <1> from <158> leaving <58>
Squares R8C8, R8C9, R2C8 and R2C9 form a Type-4 Unique Rectangle on <78>.
   R2C8 - removing <8> from <478> leaving <47>
   R2C9 - removing <8> from <678> leaving <67>
Squares R9C4, R9C6, R3C4 and R3C6 form a Type-4 Unique Rectangle on <18>.
   R3C4 - removing <8> from <168> leaving <16>
   R3C6 - removing <8> from <14568> leaving <1456>
Squares R4C1 (XY), R6C2 (XZ) and R4C7 (YZ) form an XY-Wing pattern on <6>. All squares that are buddies of both the XZ and YZ squares cannot be <6>.
   R4C2 - removing <6> from <456> leaving <45>
   R6C9 - removing <6> from <68> leaving <8>
