Thats what happens when people start using Yau

3. *mwah*

4. I'm also curious about the method. I wonder if Erik or Feliks would like to share it.

5. maybe they keeping it a secert

nice avg

6. i think avoiding oll parities is the new zeroing (if you know what i mean).

7. Getting lucky is not a crime right erik?

(lol avoiding parity)

8. Notes:
Spoiler:
Scramble with White on U and Green on F
Move counts are estimated using STM & ETM
All notation is SiGN
Wide and slice move examples using SiGN notation: alg.garron.us
Rotations may not be actually what was performed
Moves and rotations in ( ) are executed simultaneously
"F2L" in the statistics refers to the four courner-edge pairs only
Thank you to Erik for the scrambles
