Without having followed the link, I pressume by 'hardest' they meant it took the most amount of cpu time to calculate the optimal solution?

"To date we have found about twelve million distance-20 positions. The following position was the hardest for our programs to solve"

I want to know how far into a CFOP (or other common method) solve you can get and still need 20 turns. Is there a position with solved cross that still needs 20? Or even with one or more solved F2L pairs?

Edit2: Thanks to this page. Just had to write a little program to find the longest algorithm. It's the only 16 move algorithm, interestingly.

Yeah dis was a hard scramble. took me 30 secs to SCRAMBLE it and 10 to admire the white Edge pcs which wen dropped one by one make the white cross in only 6 moves.
aw c'mon out of 43 quintillion possibilities this is the ONE?
wats the definition of hardest??
my newbie bro once told: Wen all 9 stickers on a face are of different colors thats the hardest! rolf. (It really wud be hard. jst imagine!)

The scramble in the OP is actually a very easy scramble for my method. I got 18.00 for it, while I average 23.

17. ### Cool FrogMember

I am a rouxer... and got a rather good solve with this... (rather good move count also)

Edit:nevermind
