Here is the Akron Beacon Journal CREATORS of 3/30/22 at the end of tracing the follow up of a 5-fill. Scanning for 5-fills is not productive. Too many, and they almost always fail.
But this time, 4 of the 5 free cells of c7 see a given 2. It’s a 5-fill with a clue. From here at C5, the solution places itself.
The follow up trace has three more 4-fills and five resolved 3-fills.
Next week’s ABJ Creators Gold gives a choice of 4-fills for a bypass solution. We might not pick the same one.
