RA of 13 solves. Pretty consistent eh? Japanese style inspect the first pair during the cross and make smooth transition to the first pair. Then I turn as fast as I can while maintaining no delay. I will learn multi-slotting. (I think I am using semi-multislotting that I do 2 pairs or more in one "motion")

Fridrich F2L seems so much easier after practicing ZBF2L. I had a lot of good cases here, and several of these ended with just the basic 3 move inserts. Why can't I do this in competition.

WTF!! Before this I never thought a non-lucky sub 6 run was possible, I was just that focused! One of the 7.xx runs had a F2L pair already solved. I'm starting to question what is considered too lucky. I can start on any color, so 4 move crosses are not that uncommon. I love exploiting easy cases, it makes the first F2L pair so much easier to track! My global average is somewhere in the 9s, but for 12 runs, color neutrality gives me a high variance so it's possible to do much better than the global average. Go figure, this was a RA that went very bad after the 6.54. I want to see how fast Yu Jeong-Min can do this. I also recently updated my site

Zero cube rotation really helps with the speed of the F2L. Couple this with identifying the cross+ first pair all in the preinspection makes especially fast F2L.

Umm . im not sure why my best and worst time tend to be next to eachother :-O I tried this category for fun. Now i see clearly where i lose most of my time. I really though my f2l was a few secs slower than this. Or maybe doing only f2l made me go faster somehow? Not sure . I will practice this more :-)

I could probably get a better avg if I did a RA but this was just a little diagnostic avg to see whether I needed to work on my F2L or my LL. Seems it's neither; I need to work on my consistency >_>

Ridiculously high SD (3.04). Still freezing on some configurations. Sub25 on the whole cube will be possible once I can produce this 15'' F2L consistantly. I'll only solve F2Ls in August.
