Double Block Line
Double Block Line is similar to Block Line except... doubled! With this technique,
lines are taken into account.
Consider the sudoku below.
the left and right blocks
, the value 4 can only exist in
the cells marked with a small 4
If a 4 exists in
the top row of the left block
, then there must be a 4 in
the bottom row of the right block
. Alternatively, if
the bottom row of the left block
contains a 4, then there must be a 4 in
the top row of the right block
Wherever the two 4s are, we know that
the top and bottom rows of the center block
cannot contain a 4. So we can remove 4 as a possible value for those cells.
