I went crazy when i saw these results, totally crazy.

The 5x5 WR was broken by 2 seconds, not much of a surprise there, i think that Frank Morris will reclaim it with a sub-1:40.xx in the coming year

New 5x5 BLD WR was broken, Chris Hardwick will have to get back to competing.

Sub-1 for the Magic, is rediculous for single and average, i think that that record will be there to stay for a while.

New 3x3 WR, ....speechless, wow

Can't wait to see videos of the new WRs if they were caught on film.

k think thats all

I can't wait for the videos either. I think all of the records set (other than the magic and 7 cubes BLD) will be broken within several months (at the Worlds or sooner would be my guess). I guess if M?ty?s attends the Worlds he can try to break the 7 cubes and magic again (he is in Hungary afterall). anyway, great competition, I like seeing the competitions increase.

I was there in Belgium (and broke most of my personal records). It was a great competition with great results, good atmosphere, nice people and M?ty?s on stage during the ceremony for almost everything, except for the main events.

He said that he practises for 4 hours every day. I hope he does it outside, otherwise he never gets any fresh air :)

Then i suppose you might know this main question of mine: was the new 3x3 WR lucky? [/b][/quote]
No.. It was not lucky.. It was a 'square' OLL (7 moves, similar to a Sune), and a G permuatation.

M?ty?s is crazy...no, he is very good !
That's the difference :D

He will go to German Open. I am sure he can average sub 0.9 on the magic.
That would be soooo nice :D
