10f) Limits of misalignment for puzzles:
cube shaped puzzles: =< 45 degrees
Megaminx: =< 36 degrees
Pyraminx: =< 60 degrees
Square-1: =< 45 degrees (U/D) or 90 degrees (/)

So, if the slice is less than 90 degrees, it's okay. Above 90 degrees it's +2.

Ah thank you

3. Anyone knows the amount of prize money that was given to Michal in the World Rubik's Cube Championships 2011? I know the total amount was 24,710 Euros, but what was the amount given for the first prize in the individual category of Rubik's Cube (3x3)?

Good luck winning if your pb average of 5 is 11.24... You do realize people who average sub 8.5 attend these competitions.

Actually it's 17.64
His PB single is 11.24

It's cool to have goals though, and if you think how quickly 5BLD improved... in one year it is 'possible' that he could win it.

9. Yes it's possible, but such talented people are very rare. Odds are that he's just a kid bragging about his future WR without realizing how much time andndedication it requires to reach that level.

I hope he considers my estimate of how many solves I've done and also considers that I've been doing deliberate practise for a good 3 out of 4 of the years I count solves for, and I'm not even sub 9 any more since I stopped practising about 2-3 months ago.
