Hi guys,

I just came back home from Dutch Championship 2007.

In the final I had a very lucky case, which brought me 9.55 seconds.
It was an easy cross, probably 4 moves.
After the cross the BR pair was solved in the wrong slot (FL).
And ... I had a PLL skip.

I hope (really!) Harris will break the record again today in Toronto Fall Open 2007. Probably non lucky.

Have fun,

Ron

Oh, and btw. the rest of my solves were garbage again. :-(
In first round I made 7 mistakes and had 1 penalty.
In the final I made 4 mistakes and had 2 penalties.
I need a shrink.

Have fun,

Ron
PS: I am trying to find the scramble...

Congratz Ron! Beat Harris's 9.80 by quite a bit :)

Marc van Beest really is a Beast, haha.

Congrats Ron! Don't think it's going to be broken here in VA... But there's still one more round, so we'll see. :D
How's Jason Baum doing ? sub 13? sub 12 ?

Congratulations Ron,
I think you really deserve that.
I remember when you told me at Polish Open how awkward it is that your best competition singe time is slower than your best home Avg.
Now average THAT at home! :)

Not bad for a 40 year old. :)

I feel a bit sorry for my good friend Erik though.

Congratulations On The New Wr!

Congratulations on your WR time. I don't care if it WAS a lucky solve because it was bound to happen sometime in a competition. You got the benefit of some good luck and of course the skill you already have!


OK to add to the above post...

During practice before the Toronto Fall Open (and surrounded by loads of fans witnessing it all) Harris did a non-tournament 7.50 sec solve.

It is too bad that it was official in the sense that everyone was present to witness it, it was unfortunate that it couldn't be just half an hour later when he did his 9.80 sec. solve officially.

WHAT A DAY!!
