Intersection of row 2 with block 2. The value <2> only appears in one or more of squares R2C4, R2C5 and R2C6 of row 2. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 2. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 2 cannot contain this value.
   R3C4 - removing <2> from <256> leaving <56>
Intersection of column 2 with block 1. The value <2> only appears in one or more of squares R1C2, R2C2 and R3C2 of column 2. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 1. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 1 cannot contain this value.
   R1C3 - removing <2> from <2569> leaving <569>
   R3C3 - removing <2> from <2456> leaving <456>
Squares R4C7<68>, R6C7<689> and R7C7<69> in column 7 form a comprehensive locked triplet. These 3 squares can only contain the 3 possibilities <689>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.
   R1C7 - removing <69> from <2569> leaving <25>
   R9C7 - removing <6> from <256> leaving <25>
Squares R4C3<26>, R6C3<126> and R9C3<16> in column 3 form a comprehensive locked triplet. These 3 squares can only contain the 3 possibilities <126>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.
   R1C3 - removing <6> from <569> leaving <59>
   R3C3 - removing <6> from <456> leaving <45>
   R7C3 - removing <16> from <1469> leaving <49>
R7C4 is the only square in row 7 that can be <1>
Squares R8C4 and R8C6 in row 8 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <26>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the row.
   R8C1 - removing <6> from <169> leaving <19>
   R8C9 - removing <6> from <169> leaving <19>
Squares R2C1 and R2C9 in row 2 and R8C1 and R8C9 in row 8 form a Simple X-Wing pattern on possibility <9>. All other instances of this possibility in columns 1 and 9 can be removed.
