    Converting algorithms to letters?

    For something as "small" as ZBLL I feel that you shouldn't worry about getting every part of an alg precisely encoded into an image. As long as you train your algs regularly, your brain should be able to fill in a lot of the gaps. If I were you, I'd just leave out all of the non trigger moves...

    Current Fastest Corners-First-Method Solver

    I think Gianfranco Huanqui is probably one of the fastest if not the fastest corners first solver. He has a 10.56 single in competition, and I'd be surprised if he didn't have a sub 8 single and 11-13 second average at home, since I know that several BLDers of his caliber have unofficial...

    Wanted: 11-periodic optimal algorithm

    He's the writer of ksolve++ and told me that he used it to find those algorithms. You can probably reach him on reddit (he's not on this forum).

    Wanted: 11-periodic optimal algorithm

    Ben Whitmore found these just now using ksolve++: U L U F D2 U2 F' R' B' D' (10 HTM) U L U R D U' F' L' B' D' (10 HTM) He said that these are the shortest algorithms that have a order of 11. He also said that there are probably thousands of algs like these (10 HTM with an order of 11).

    Antislice move notation

    Many top BLDers, who use a lot of antislice moves for 3-style corners, tend to write them without spaces in their alg sheets. Random example from Ishaan's alg sheet: [UD R UD: [D' , R' U' R]] To be honest, if any convention is to catch on, it will probably be to remove the space in this...

    [Help Thread] ZBLL discussion

    Your alg learning ability is the honestly most confusing thing ever for me. Here's some ideas I can think of off the top of my head: Train the algs a lot more on my trainer. This was my default solution whenever I ran into problems, and it has always worked for me in the end. Figure out which...

    ZBLL Recognition Trainer

    First off, I'm quite impressed you were able to make this all in Excel. Nice job! A big problem with this kind of trainer, however, is that people rarely learn numbers or names for ZBLL cases. Even though I know full ZBLL, I'm able to score exactly zero points on your trainer, since I don't...

    My accuracy seems to be improving a lot now. Averages of 12 used to be nearly impossible for me a month ago. I had one yesterday too, which turned out to be 36.xx I think I can consider myself sub 35 now, since I can usually manage sub 35 sessions with 60-70% accuracy. Average of 12: 34.238 1...
