I'm just starting out on Heyawake. On this puzzle, I didn't see the next logical move, so I tried the 3 box with LRL and then RLR and I didn't have any luck going down those bifurcations. What am I supposed to see here? place i am stuck

This is 8x8 Normal Heyawake nr 4,890,742 at puzzle-heyawake.com.

You have two white cells in the bottom right corner that are closed on three sides (either by black cells or the border of the grid). Since all white cells must form one continuous area, both of those cells must be bordered by a white cell and in both cases there's only one option where that can be. So row 6 column 8 and row 8 column 6 must both be white.
