I seem to be stuck on this one emoticon  I could use some help, but I'd also like to understand how to "get unstuck" in similar situations!

Thank you emoticon

In row 22 you have marked 24 black squares, should be 25.

What I do in this situation: when I'm sure, that there is no logical move and double-triple checked this and still found nothing, means I have made a mistake somewhere. Sad, but so true :-(

Here's a trick I use that is very awkward but can sometimes get me "unstuck". Look at the 6 in row 22. If you pushed that 6 all the way to the right then row 23 would have to have the 4 also pushed so far to the right that there would be no room left for the 3. Therefore, I know that the 6 cannot go all the way to the right. Therefore, I can figure out that  row 22 column 6 is black while row 22 column 12 is blue. From there I can start figuring out some other stuff but let's see what you can do with that.
