Step B 1x2x3: [y'] R' u' R u' R u = 6 STM
Step C 1x1x3: U M2 U2 R' = 4 STM

Corner Orientation: R U2 R' U' R U' R' = 7 STM
Corner Permutation: U R' U l' U2 r U' r' U2 L2 [x] = 10 STM
Edge Orientation: M' U M' U2 M' U M' = 7 STM
Left and Right: U' M2 U' = 3 STM
Middle: M U2 M U2 M2 = 5 STM

Total: 6 + 6 + 4 + 8 + 7 + 10 + 7 + 3 + 5 = 56 STM

Comment: Well, I saw some better solutions, but I went for speed instead of number of moves. I had a couple cancellations but for using 2 look corners, I'm pretty happy with it.

Comment: Inspection was about 5 seconds, didn't even realize it was lucky untill it was a 17 move F2B. This was completely colour fixed, no neutrality, and I used 2 look CMLL. During Step A I saw the second 1x1x3. During Step B I saw the third 1x1x3. During Step C I saw that both edges were already solved but one was misoriented. Normal but fast 2 look CMLL. Easy LSE. Probably the luckiest solve I've ever had.

10. I like this idea.

For ben1996's scramble:

X-cross: z2 R2 B' L F' L2 y (U2 R U' R') D'
F2L 2: y2 D' (R U R' U') (R U R' U') D
F2L 3: y' R' U R U R' U R
F2L 4: U' R U2 R' U y' R' U' R
OLL: y2 R U2 R' U' R U' R' L' U2 L U L' U L (antisune on either side)
PLL: R U' R U R U R U' R' U' R2 U.

Next!
L' D U L F D B2 D2 R F D U2 F2 L U' L2 D2 U2 B R' F D' U' B' F.
