Squares R6C1 and R6C8 in row 6 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <47>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the row.

R6C2 - removing <4> from <469> leaving <69>

R6C6 - removing <47> from <4679> leaving <69>

Intersection of row 5 with block 5. The value <4> 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 this value.

R4C4 - removing <4> from <489> leaving <89>

R4C6 - removing <4> from <4789> leaving <789>

Intersection of column 3 with block 7. The value <9> only appears in one or more of squares R7C3, R8C3 and R9C3 of column 3. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 7. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 7 cannot contain this value.

R8C2 - removing <9> from <469> leaving <46>

Intersection of row 8 with block 8. The value <9> only appears in one or more of squares R8C4, R8C5 and R8C6 of row 8. These squares are the ones that intersect with block 8. Thus, the other (non-intersecting) squares of block 8 cannot contain this value.

R7C5 - removing <9> from <479> leaving <47>

R9C3 is the only square in row 9 that can be <9>

Squares R6C6 and R8C6 in column 6 form a simple locked pair. These 2 squares both contain the 2 possibilities <69>. Since each of the squares must contain one of the possibilities, they can be eliminated from the other squares in the column.

R4C6 - removing <9> from <789> leaving <78>

R9C6 - removing <6> from <167> leaving <17>

Squares R6C2 and R8C2 in column 2 and R6C6 and R8C6 in column 6 form a Simple X-Wing pattern on possibility <6>. All other instances of this possibility in rows 6 and 8 can be removed.

R8C4 - removing <6> from <469> leaving <49>

The puzzle can be reduced to a Bivalue Universal Grave (BUG) pattern, by making this reduction:

R9C4=<16>

These are called the BUG possibilities. In a BUG pattern, in each row, column and block, each unsolved possibility appears exactly twice. Such a pattern either has 0 or 2 solutions, so it cannot be part of a valid Sudoku

When a puzzle contains a BUG, and only one square in the puzzle has more than 2 possibilities, the only way to kill the BUG is to remove both of the BUG possibilities from the square, thus solving it
