Is this a V2?
It was a great challenge - took ages to find the key. On the 3rd attempt finally found the way without chains. I here-by declare my love for LoL!!

Please let me know of any improvements/short-cuts to this walk-through.
Cheers. Ed

Me too. You probably missed this one :
LoL on R123 -> {R23C1, R3C2} = {R4C45, R5C5}
Plugging with the cages -> R3C4 = 27-21 = 6

Not sure you got this one:
Innies of C123 -> R19C3 = 15 = {69|78}
LoL on C123 -> {R1789C3} = {R34C4, R45C5}
-> R78C3 = 27-15 = 12 <> {6..} (this could also be deduced with innies or outies)
-> R19C3 = {69}

All best,
