A very smooth start into a new str8ts week. At one point there is an interesting UR concerning B2, which however is not neccessary to solve. Standard tools are sufficient.

 

by: jgrab

 
 
A very nice exercise in standard tools! Beyond the B2 UR, I found another helpful UR nicely combining diagnoals and wings.

Again, a nice one. Maybe I was having a blind spot, but I didn't make it without a head chain.

 

by: Cosmanita

 
 
I also started to try chains, e.g. in J8, H8 and C3, but did not reached my aim yet. Were did you started the chain?

#536 cannot be solved with standard tools. An additional clue is needed to achieve this. There are several candidates. The most challenging is F9=7.
