Move statistics for ZB
September 23, 2005

Here's another 100 cube average measuring the number of moves it took to solve rather than the time. I only took 30 seconds or less per cube, to count the number of moves done while speedsolving. Below are the final results for the average number of moves for each step, and for each type of solving method.

 Average number of moves : each step ZBF2L COLL / PLL finish ZBLL finish 32.58 moves 1632 / 74 = 22.05 moves 334 / 26 = 12.85 moves

 Average number of moves : solving methods ZBF2L / COLL / PLL(with no PLL skips after COLL) ZBF2L / ZBLL ZBF2L / COLL / PLLWith 1/12 odds PLL skip after PLL*Projected Value* ZBF2L / (25% ZBLL) or (COLL / PLL)As of 9/23/05 this is my current method 54.63 moves 45.43 moves 53.70 moves 52.24 moves

Below are the numbers for each solve, as well as averages calculated at the bottom. If there is an "X" in the Xcross column, that means I did an extended cross solve. A "XX" means I did a double extended cross solve.

I recently did a 100 cube average, but measured the number of moves it took to solve rather than the time. I only took 30 seconds or less per cube, to count the number of moves done while speedsolving. Below are the final results for the average number of moves for each step, and for each type of solving method.

 Average number of moves : each step ZBF2L COLL / PLL finish ZBLL finish 33.37 moves 1933 / 91 = 21.24 moves 114 / 9 = 12.67 moves

 Average number of moves : solving methods ZBF2L / COLL / PLL(with no PLL skips after COLL) ZBF2L / ZBLL ZBF2L / COLL / PLLWith 1/12 odds PLL skip after PLL*Projected Value* ZBF2L / (10% ZBLL) or (COLL / PLL)As of 4/23/05 this is my current method 54.61 moves 46.04 moves 53.90 moves 53.84 moves

Below are the numbers for each solve, as well as averages calculated at the bottom.
