I'm curious about how people do some particularly difficult 3-cycle cases. So I'd like to try to post a new 3 cycle each day, and ask how you do that particular case. Share your algorithm, discuss it if you'd like, and offer any alternatives that you may think are good.

Also, if you find a case particularly troubling, request it and I'll put that up as the next case to discuss.
