Here are some examples of solving the cube.

The examples were taken from the first three cases of the March 24, 2002 Sunday contest.

Remember that these are real life cases, so absolutely not optimal. All three cases were:

- solved within 20 seconds
- at top speed
- recorded on video
- and after that translated to moves (UDFBRL) and rotations (xyz)

Remember to keep your normal last layer on top, when starting the scrambling sequences for the cases.

Good luck!
