2 | 6 years 359 days | Daniel Hop | Daniel started practising blindsolving about a month ago. Last week he already solved it a few times but today is the first time he did it all by himself. He uses M2 for the edges and old Pochman for the corners. It takes him about 15 minutes. | 20080718 |

3 | 8 years 199 days | Bernett Orlando | I was interviewed and asked to perform by the leading Tamil daily "DINAMALAR" this morning. I did very well. I solved 2 rubik's cubes successfully BLINDFOLDED in front of its officials. CUBE-1 :- I took 5 min to memorise. I solved it 100% perfectly BLINDFOLDED in just 9 min. CUBE-2 :- I took 7 min to memorise. I solved it 100% perfectly BLINDFOLDED in just 7 min. I am also learning to solve 4*4*4 rubik's cube. I am also learning all the necessary formulas, strategies and tactics to solve 3*3*3 in less than 20 sec. I am sure I will achieve it by dec-2005. | 20041208 |

4 | 10 years 36 days | Justin Adsuara | This was done on March 19, 2007. My time was 11 min, 3.82 sec. I just competed in the Berkeley Spring Competition today. I had fun doing my first BLD solve in competition, meeting other cubers, and having a picture taken with Leyan Lo. My results in BLD were 1st solve:DNF; 2nd solve: 6:37; 3rd solve:6:33. In competition I also did 3x3 speedsolve, with an average of 33.71 sec. | 20070415 |

5 | 11 years 156 days | Douwe Wermer | Took me probably around 15 minutes. | 20080514 |

6 | 11 years 7 months | Kevin Kapinos | I don't remember the date exactly but my birthday is in August and I solved it blindfolded during the spring when I was 11. Method: similar to Old Pochmann but I oriented corners and edges first. I currently use Old Pochmann. Time: ~20 minutes. | 20081130 |

7 | 11 years 10 months | Brian Yu | About 6 minutes | 20090214 |

8 | 11 years 11 months 26 days | Mats Valk | first good solve after 3 weeks practice. yes! time: 4:58.65 scramble:D' L2 R B F' L R2 B2 F2 D' U' B F' R D2 B' D U' B' F D F D B F' I start with green up and yellow at the front. corner oriënt: + x - x + x x -. corner permute: 8 1 2 7 5 6. edge oriënt: 7 6 1. edge permute: c k b g j f a l h e. | 20080430 |

9 | 12 years 43 days | Marcel Passon | My first blind solve! My time was 7:21 minutes! | 20080320 |

10 | 12 years 123 days | Alan Chang | It's impossible for Macky to beat my record. =D I solved it blindfolded on 12/27/2004 with a time of 12 minutes 11.98 seconds. | 20041227 |

11 | 12 years 125 days | Sam Cappleman-Lynes | This was my sixth attempt. Feels so good to see a solved cube after taking off the blindfold. Pochmann's method. | 20061128 |

12 | 12 years 133 days | Aaron Tang | i sucessfully solved a rubik cube blindfolded 1 day before 2008. I learned it from youtube and it wasnt too hard Thanks to seerusgod and grintoth | 20080106 |

13 | 12 years 210 days | Yoshihiko Matushita | cube cube cube. | 20060202 |

14 | 12 years 259 days | Harris Chan | Scramble: L2 D U R2 L B R F' D B2 U B L' F U R U L' D2 F' R' D' B2 R' D Time: 11 minutes 40.97 seconds (it's actually a bit faster, but I was remembering if there's anything else to do). I was using Pochmann's/Bill's method (orient first, and then permute) I don't know if I'll continue with 3 cycle or just pure pochmann. | 20060317 |

15 | 12 years 262 days | Shotaro Makisumi | I solved a Rubik's Cube while blindfolded for the first time on December 8, 2002, with a time of 19 minutes and 31 seconds. | |

16 | 12 years 348 days | Josh Berg | My first succesful blindfold timed solve!! the time was around 6 minutes and 48 seconds. | 20070814 |

17 | 12 years 350 days | Connor Wyman | I went INSANE when I got this. It was not lucky at all!! It was a lot of cycles. But somehow, I got it. I'm pretty happy with the result. About a week of DNF's. It all pays off, Trust me. | 20090507 |

18 | 12 years 363 days | Justin Tang | Not really good at blind solving at all.. I take 10 minutes to memorize the cube and 10 minutes to execute the algorithms.. Most of the times I get are unsuccessful solves and the majority of those solves are really close. Well, I'm almost 13 years old. | 20070718 |

19 | 13 years 62 days | Tyler Hakamori | Used pure classic pochmann. Time was 4:44.06. | 20090201 |

20 | 13 years 94 days | Anthony Benis | I finally solved a rubik's cube blindfolded on February 14th 2007! I was born November 11, 1993. | 20070215 |

21 | 13 years 150 days | Alex Pusey | I solved this one a while ago | 20060709 |

22 | 13 years 183 days | Pawan Dhananjay | my first blindsolve. took about 12 mins and 34 sec(memo+solving). | 20080701 |

23 | 13 years 187 days | Anssi Vanhala | Looks like I'm youngest european blindfold solver. Nice =) | 20050505 |

24 | 13 years 213 days | Ryosuke Higo | 2minute7.21seconds | 20070328 |

25 | 13 years 222 days | Patrick Jameson | Yes! Finally after like 15 DNFs I solved it. Total time was 8:21.76. I was trying to solve it visually instead of numbers and it worked! | 20080224 |

26 | 13 years 8 months | Matthew Wanstall | yay, I was so pleased that i got a successful blindfold solve. I am using 3-cycle, but am thinking of switching to turbo for edges. | 20081003 |

27 | 13 years 293 days | Raku Watari | On the 56th day of trying to get a solve, I finally got my first at Caltech Summer 2007, with a time of 7:43.79. Thanks to Brian Zhang who helped me with the 3-Cycle method. | 20070826 |

28 | 13 years 10 months 5 days | Maxwell Landes | I was born on June 12, 1995 My first BLD solve was about 1 month ago, I think. YouTube Link | 20090507 |
