## Advanced Tips

Whenever you see two 3 clues in this configuration (or vertically), you know that the slants go this way.

Why: we cannot have two slants pointing to one 3 clue and away from the other. This means that exactly one slant points to one, and another slant points to the other. Therefore the other slants must go this way.
