    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

    Luck or non lucky, congrats on your records Ron.
    I can't believe the 3x3x3 record is being broken so oft.This is what makes Cubing so interesting.We are never stagnant. :)

    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...

    Hi Gilles,

    Yes, it was my first lucky solve in 3x3 event.
    I once had a PLL skip in 3x3 one-handed event.

    Have fun,

    Rib

    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

    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.

    Don't worry, Erik will beat that one day, haha.

    I'm always motivated of course, and also Ron deserved the WR a lot! He's been cubing for like 25 years now and still improving!

    I'm pretty sure he did.

    Wow... If he memorized 3 algorithms a month for ZB, he'd know the whole thing by now :D

    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!!
