Kropki Sudoku Puzzle (Fun With Sudoku #280)

Once upon a time, Kropki Sudoku Puzzle was one of my most feared Sudoku puzzle types. This is one of the Sudoku puzzle types in which without giving any hints, this Sudoku can be solved uniquely and logically. However, some of the Kropki Sudoku puzzles are very tough and most of the experienced players try to solve Kropki Sudoku with a guess or bifurcation. Kropki Sudoku is also known by another name called Dots Sudoku. However, the Kropki Sudoku name is used in most of the World Sudoku Championships and other Sudoku competitions. This Kropki Sudoku puzzle, which I am publishing as part of the Fun With Sudoku Series is the 280th Sudoku Puzzle in this Series.

Rules of Kropki Sudoku Puzzle

Standard Sudoku Rules apply. Additionally, if the absolute difference between two digits in neighboring cells equals 1, then they are separated by a white dot. If the digit is half of the digit in the neighboring cell, then they are separated by a black dot. The dot between 1 and 2 can be either white or black.
