Today is an epic day for me :)

Today is the day I have finally learned all the OLL and PLL for the fridrich method

What’s that you say? It’s an advanced rubiks cube system for solving it. CFOP

The only algorityms you need to know are the OLL and PLL.

Learned all 57/57

And 21/21 PLL

</brag> :D.

Magic fingers !

Pb ao5-20.17///pb ao12-21.98

16.38 on the cube!! Lucky though, got a PLL skip (skipped last step by luck)

21.96 solve

16:38 is not enough for me to think about this performance…I can do this all the day !

good heavens, congratulations!

Congrats!

The winners averaged around 11-12 seconds. I’ve been cubing for 4 motnhs. They have been cubing for 2+ years. I’ve progressed very fast compared to most (took this one guy a year to get under 30 seconds like me)

I expect by next year to be around 13-14 seconds.

Congratulations Ryan, I can’t even do the 3 by 3 cube, let alone a proper one… then again I’ve never taken the time to learn

I guess it’s got to do with the stress of competition, doesn’t it? It’s just not the same thing as sitting in your own home
It’ll go better next time.

3x3x3 is the proper one

Anyway, just this morning while I was doing a “Race to sub20 thread” (which means alot of people try and do averages of 12 and try and get sub20 averages…tehn they move on to sub15 Average of 12 thread…etc. Anyway. While I was doing that…got two new personal bests/new PB Average of 5/12
I’m just going to quote my post, don’t worry if you don’t know what I mean by xcross/F perm etc

number of times: 12/12
best time: 18.14
worst time: 27.94

current avg5: 23.15 (σ = 3.15)
best avg5: 23.15 (σ = 3.15)

avg12: 24.52 (σ = 3.01)

1 23.34
2 27.75
3 19.27 PB…saw first pair in inspection and lookahead’d. omg
4 25.82
5 25.98
6 27.94
7 25.88
8 27.46
9 20.0
10 18.14 Random xcross and great lookahead. Friggin F perm though :-/
11 27.7
12 22.0

The 19/18 were two personal bests. Got the 19 and saw first pair in inspection. That 19 was a PB. Then on the 18 I saw I’d get an xcross (not planned though) and I saw the 2nd pair fast. I broke my PB twice on this AO12. I’m very very happy with these…the 27’s are meh though.

Sorry for not typing correctly on there…I only try and type properly here (those of you who see me on Facebook know that as well ;))

Broke my PB single twice there…ahhh

Edit-V perm not an F, sorry (not that any of you understand/care anyway :D)

So how did it go?

I got smashed :).

The 2x2x2 times are over a minute (lol) because me solving it on stage was the first time I had ever solved it

The 3x3x3 times were horrible…31 average…screwed up a solve thus getting a 40 seconder…held the cube a wrong way while performing the last algorithm and as a result when I threw the cube down, was a DNF

The blindfolded…2 solves were a legit DNF, the other one was bullcrap…had one more algorithm to go and it woulda been solved.

4x4x4/5x5x5 were ok times…a lot of room for improvement there.

Woot competition tomorrow

Yep! 3 now.

00:20.91 on the cube

I’m sooo close to sub20…

4 days to go for your first competition!

Just signed up for nationals (8/6 - 8/8 (It’ll actually be a 5 day vacation though))

Registration was only 59 dollars total for all these events
2x2x2
3x3x3
4x4x4
5x5x5
6x6x6
7x7x7
