1 | 6.06 seconds | Derrick Eide | WOW!! WOWOWOWOWOWOW!! I can't believe this! this solve was amazing! YESS! I finally beat Pak too! sorry Pak I'll guess you'll have to settle for 2nd place now. I've been wanting to get the record on here for sometime now and was finally getting close till pak set the standard of 8 seconds but I did it! In the solve I used a normal solve approach I saw the whole f2l in my Memo and I looked ahead for the Oll and realized that if I used the right OLL I could finish PLL too! YEAH! this has to be the limit for this puzzle Blindfolded. | 20070516 |

2 | 6.91 seconds | Yuxuan Wang | n/a | 20090507 |

3 | 8.03 seconds | Seongho Park | My cube feels lonely. Video is here(http://tvpot.daum.net/clip/ClipView.do?clipid=2003043) ;;;; | 20070214 |

4 | 8.02 seconds | Brian Yu | Using a Freestyle/TuRBo/R2 combination that's really hard to describe here. It wasn't lucky. Done on a friend's 2x2. | 20090507 |

5 | 9.37 seconds | Milán Baticz | After practising this with Derrick :) Practise practise practise. | 20080109 |

6 | 15.11 seconds | Ben Whitmore | Other than the whip-it the other whip-it the other whip-it the 2x2 ( the magic and the pyraminx 2x2 BLD is the only puzzle that makes me seem fast. I actually did this solve about a month ago. Just forgot to upload it. I use my own method: 1. Orient bottom layer 2. Do an x2 cube rotation 3. Orient that bottom layer 4. Do another x2 cube rotation 5. Permute top layer 6. Do another x2 cube rotation 7. Permute that top layer 8. Do another x2 cube rotation (might seem pointless) 9. Line up layers. | 20090201 |

7 | 15.92 seconds | Phil Thomas | Amazing! Using Ortega I think (variation of Guimond)! I saw a 4 move first layer U R U R'. Then the 8 move anti sune (y' R' U R U' R' U2 R) for oll preserved the top layer permutation. Then I permuted both layers (y2 U2 R2 U R2 y' U2 R2 U R2) That was aweseom | 20071120 |

8 | 17.25 seconds | Kyle Allaire | n/a | 20070109 |

9 | 19.06 seconds | Balázs Bernát | with old Pochmann. | 20080318 |

10 | 19.43 seconds | Takuma Akutsu | Using 3x3x3 BLD system :) | 20071012 |

11 | 19.94 seconds | Szabolcs Balázsi | (Pochmann) 2 corners were solved. | 20081112 |

12 | 21.44 seconds | Péter Trombitás | with an easy speedblind for Guimond method. average is about 35 seconds with old pochmann. | 20090507 |

13 | 23.86 seconds | Mátyás Kuti | Memorization abut 10 seconds. 2 corners were solved. Using Pochmann. | 20070106 |

14 | 24.34 seconds | Thom Barlow | This was a special case. Doing an L on the cube made it into two CMLL cases, Just just memorised what they'd be after the move, blindfolded and executed. My second fastest is 37.15 done with three-cycles. I'm averaging around 50. This record doesn't really mean much to me. ~ Kirjava | 20060225 |

15 | 25 seconds | Lucas Garron | n/a | 20070319 |

16 | 25.25 seconds | Erik Akkersdijk | During weekly bld contest on rubiks.has.it very easy, and done with pochmann! | 20061113 |

17 | 28.54 seconds | Craig Bouchard | In my average.very easy. | 20060316 |

17 | 28.54 seconds | Bordas Szabolcs | I have doing this for 3 days:D | 20090201 |

19 | 28.63 seconds | Alexei Gousev | Not bad. Two sunes, one in each layer, and 5 corners misplaced. Could've been faster if I wasn't afraid to overspin on my 2x2, which is way too spinny for BLDing. | 20061221 |

20 | 29.54 seconds | Timothy Sun | I do my entire system, since I can't really figure out how to do Orientation->Permutation. Easy case, fourteen moves: 8 moves FL, FURU'R'F LL. I need to get a real 2x2x2, it's distracting with the edges and centers on a 3x3x3. | 20060329 |

21 | 29.85 seconds | Wuqiong Fan | This is classic Pochmann memo in about 6 seconds. Not lucky. I've gotten several lucky solves today with sub-5 memo and sub-20 total. Average maybe 40-50 seconds (15-20 memo). I suck at execution (learn R2 perhaps?). | 20080925 |

22 | 30.81 seconds | Bob Burton | Quick memorization on this solve. Only 13 seconds to memorize. Visit my site. | 20060514 |

23 | 31 seconds | Shotaro Makisumi | I need an Eastsheen. | |

24 | 31.85 seconds | Andy Tsao | Done about 10 minutes after I decided to start taking this seriously. | 20061029 |

25 | 32.98 seconds | Joël van Noort | I am practicing the 2x2 BLD. I learned quite a few patterns for CO. | 20070125 |

26 | 33.49 seconds | Kai Jiptner | I like doing the 2x2 Blindfolded. I'm not sure why ;) Here is the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy5GylYrBN0 | 20070727 |

27 | 35.51 seconds | Joseph Liao | Easy memorization! | |

28 | 36 seconds | Alex Kumaki | About 15 second memorization. | 20080503 |

29 | 37.15 seconds | Johannes Laire | Only tried 3 times. Too easy and boring. | 20060902 |

30 | 37.66 seconds | Roland Kovács | n/a | 20081007 |

31 | 39.96 seconds | Sinpei Araki | I should learn more 2x2x2 Rubiks@BLD | 20061127 |

32 | 41.23 seconds | Bertrand Bordage | zzzzzzzzz. The mini cube is too easy. I just memorize the algorithms I must do. No numbers or other memorization tips. Numbers are not easy to remember. It just need to remember 7 cubes positions in a difficult case. I solved a mini cube for the first time the same day. I'm gonna do the Rubik's cube. That's more serious. | 20041010 |

33 | 42.60 seconds | Toshihiro Oono | n/a | 20070114 |

34 | 42.68 seconds | Jacob Powell | Amazing fast Memo and somehow lucky but not, 4 corners misoriented, 2 switch then 3-cycle, and the solve! Using the 3-cycle method learned from Makisumi's site. Fun. | 20080626 |

35 | 44.25 seconds | Jefferson James | Did this a while ago. | 20080126 |

36 | 44.69 seconds | Caleb Lau | I probably could have gone faster. I was using Pochmann's original method (not M2, R2). See my site: GottaCube.com | 20070608 |

37 | 45 seconds | Connor Wyman | OH YEAH!! Beat Orlando! Im Happy! -) Wish I Had a video though -( | 20080626 |

38 | 45.31 seconds | Ron van Bruchem | Boooooooring. ;-) | |

39 | 45.59 seconds | Mats Luthman | n/a | 20080731 |

40 | 48 seconds | Chris Hardwick | Done on an Eastsheen. I also got a lucky 34 second time. Starting to figure this out. | |

41 | 49.27 seconds | Andrew Smith | wow, i just shattered my old record! this is the sort of challenging part of the 2 x 2 | 20070505 |

42 | 51.58 seconds | Gunnar Krig | I did a few solves. This is my 2nd sub-60. Tomorrow I'll practice some 3x3BLD. | 20070828 |

43 | 52.86 seconds | Emile Compion | B2 L F2 R B R D F' D B2 L' B L F' L D2 F2 R2 D B U2 F2 D B L2 First sub-60. While racing Derrick Eide over MSN. He got a 22.21 on the same scramble XD. I TOLD you I would do it Derrick!! | 20080313 |

44 | 56 seconds | Bryan Cheng | Took a bunch of tries. | |

45 | 1 minute | Bernett Orlando | I did this only after learning 3*3*3 and 4*4*4. As I was not owning a 2*2*2 cube back then, I used only 4*4*4 cube as 2*2*2 cube and solved it!!. Now I own a 2*2*2 cube. It is too easy. | 20050125 |

46 | 1 minute 3.24 seconds | Alex Seidler | Easy! I used pochmann with visual memorizing. | 20080307 |

47 | 1 minute 15 seconds | Stefan Pochmann | Very good flow, I didn't have to stop for thinking as much as usual. | |

48 | 1 minute 17.65 seconds | Sam Cappleman-Lynes | This is a great time for me (I avg. 2 mins.). Sune on top and bottom layers then an easy permutation memo (why are some easier then others?) | 20071201 |

49 | 1 minute 18.49 seconds | Rama Temmink | Getting A LOT better at the memorisation, but I must concentrate more to get faster maybe a sub 1 minute solve next time? | 20070117 |

50 | 1 minute 25 seconds | Yi Ren | good | 20090214 |

51 | 1 minute 25.13 seconds | Benoît Fontaine | 1 minute memorization | 20051030 |

52 | 1 minute 30.27 seconds | Brad Sampson | First time doing a Eastsheen 2x2 Blindfolded. | 20080322 |

53 | 1 minute 41 seconds | Brent Morgan | This is awesome. My site. | 20040314 |

54 | 1 minute 41.08 seconds | Matt Wallisa | n/a | 20051024 |

55 | 1 minute 51.95 seconds | Kenneth Gustavsson | I just learned to do this, had a couple of 5-10 minutes solves earlier. But now I also learned all the patterns for permutation changes during OLL. That did cut about half of the times =) | 20051110 |

56 | 1 minute 57.21 seconds | Matt Bychowski | Done in my truck in a parking lot one evening. My memory is horrible, so this is probably approaching my fastest time. | 20061221 |

57 | 2 minutes 0.37 seconds | Austin Reed | wow | 20080428 |

58 | 2 minutes 3 seconds | Cameron Webley | It took 2 tries for this, if I rush the memorization, I make some mistakes. | |

59 | 2 minutes 6.68 seconds | Evan Gates | my first time, 11:38 pm pretty easy orientation and permutation, but i did it none the less, im so happy :-D | 20041107 |

60 | 2 minutes 10 seconds | Allen Winslow | This was the first time I timed myself with a 2x2 blindsolve but I don't think that I will get to try again for a long time because I just broke my 2x2! Ugh! | 20080601 |

61 | 2 minutes 38.20 seconds | Alan Tan | Well. I'm not really good at this. It took me 20 attempts to get ONE solve. AND ON CAMERA TOO THOUGH =D So my first solve. So proud =D I used the beginner's method (I think it's called that?) where you use a buffer zone/undisturbance zone (creds to seerusgod and grintoth on YouTube). Speaking of YouTube. This vid'll go online =D So check out youtube.com/RayjinBlitz if you'd like to see =] I'm not that fast though so yea. One more thing I think this is considered a lucky solve I'm not sure. | 20080514 |

62 | 2 minutes 49.57 seconds | Carl-Johan Kjellander | Using the standard Richard Carr method. 52371648 22112100 so 3 orientations and 3 permutations. Now to learn the 3x3x3 blindfolded. | 20050712 |

63 | 2 minutes 55.20 seconds | Michael Gottlieb | First try; three-cycle method. Permutation was (13546)(28) and orientation was ---++0+0. | 20070519 |

64 | 3 minutes | Shao Hang Kao | Blindfold is fun! | 20050910 |

65 | 3 minutes 28 seconds | Michael Atkinson | I can do it just about every time now! Don't know how I'll be able to memorize enough numbers for the 3x3x3, though.. | |

66 | 3 minutes 45.87 seconds | Michael Fung | Timed with "The ultimate Rubik's cube® timer version 2.1". Scramble: F'RU'LD2LB2UR'D2L2BR'BU2R2BR'F2D'LB'UF'R2 | 20050715 |

67 | 3 minutes 46.21 seconds | Marco Nardin | my first try. | 20090201 |

68 | 6 minutes 52.16 seconds | Ben King | This is my first sucessful attempt at a blindfold solve. I had three previous attempts on the 2x2x2. The first one I had one algorithm wrong so it wasn't even close. Second I was off by one swap. Third, I don't know what I did wrong here. Previous three I did while the rest of my family was away. They came home before I started this one. I ended up watching tv through a good portion of the analysis phase. I used my own (and probably quite inefficient) method for this solve. I orient all the pieces so that on two opposite faces consist of only two opposite colors i.e. only blue and white. I write out cycles for the corners. Then I do single swaps to get them all into place. This solve may be a little bit lucky, but lucky is hard to judge when each step is a single swap. At first, the corner cycle was a beast, but I figured out that 1 swap and a D2 drastically simplified the rest of the solve. probably could have done this in 4-5 minutes if I was alone. I'm probably going to beat this again real soon, so read it while you can. | 20050610 |

69 | 12 minutes 11 seconds | Nathaniel Day | I took notes. I know that it would not count in a competition, but I still say that I did it. Slowly but surely. | 20050508 |

70 | n.a. | Blake O'Hare | I did this while waiting for my dinner at a restaurant. The people in the next table were looking at me funny. | |

70 | n.a. | Bruno Jarno | http://wrubik.free.fr | |

70 | n.a. | Masayuki Akimoto | I thought it is very tough. But I did it in several trials after I established the method. | |

70 | n.a. | Grant Tregay | I had already essentially done this when I did my 3x3x3 in two looks (corners then edges), but I just got a couple 2x2x2 cubes, so I did one. Next I'm going to try two 2x2x2's together, and hopefully after that I can do a 3x3x3 blindfolded. | |

70 | n.a. | Adam Baker | First one to start blind cubing @ OWEN HALL. Working on edges of 3x3x3 now. I'll be there soon. Special thanks to Richard Carr for his help. | |

70 | n.a. | Yuri Pertsovski | It wasn't easy. Done on a Rubik's Cube. |
