Here is my next Sudoku puzzle for the practice of the UK Sudoku Championship 2018. The theme for yesterday's Palindrome-Extra Region Sudoku Puzzle was not very clean. Relatively for today's Sudoku puzzle, I could maintain the theme. However, I have to give a few extra hints to keep the theme which makes this Sudoku puzzle easier as compared to Palindrome-Extra Region-Hybrid Sudoku. However, the toughness of a Sudoku puzzle is relative and depends from solver to solver. It will be nice to know your feedback and time to solve these puzzles. I am posting today's  Consecutive Pairs-Palindrome-Hybrid Sudoku puzzle in Daily Sudoku League as the 224th Sudoku Puzzle in this Series.

## Rules of Consecutive Pairs-Palindrome-Hybrid Sudoku

Standard Sudoku Rules apply. In addition, 'Consecutive Pairs Sudoku' and Palindrome Sudoku rules apply.

### Consecutive Pairs Sudoku Rules

Classic Sudoku Rules apply. Additionally, if a circle is given between two adjacent cells, then the two numbers in those cells must be consecutive. do note that not all circles are given. It means that adjacent cells without a circle may contain either consecutive numbers or nonconsecutive numbers.

### Palindrome Sudoku Rules

The digits in the cells with the line form palindromes, i.e. they read the same from both directions.
