    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.
     
  5. 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?
     
  7. I was scrambling cubes for the competition when I heard a loud aplause.

    I heard there were no skips, but I don't know for sure. I also heard that someone (his girlfriend?) "phone-cammed" it, but I haven't seen it appear on the web.

    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
