Sudoku Variants Series (065) - Descriptive Pairs

(Published on 24. February 2015, 00:00 by Richard)

For this Sudoku Variants Project I have planned to publish a different Sudoku variant every Tuesday. I will see how long it takes before I am running out of ideas.

Descriptive Pairs
Place the digits from 1 tot 9 in every row, column and 3x3-block. Additionally, for every pair of clues (X and Y) outside the grid at least one of the following is true:
1) X is in the Yth position in that direction;
2) Y is in the Xth position in that direction.

Solve online in Penpa+ (thx Nick Smirnov!)

Solution code: Row 2, followed by column 4.
