    L' B' L - F2L
    L2 F' D2 F L2 U2 F R2 F' U2 B - optimal T-perm cancels 1 move

    A roux-user uploaded a sub 10 solve a (long?) time ago with that scramble.
    I tried to find the video, but I couldn't find it.

    Ok Thanks for the info.
    CE says optimum is 16 HTM so it actually seems like a valid scramble....
     
  9. That scramble has been posted many times in the easy scrambles scrambles thread.

    Good new everyone, I was able to book a bigger room in the youth center.
    This means that the registration has been reopened and that there is no longer a waiting list
    So everyone who wants to come, is more than welcome!

    Classic Rob Yau quotes:
    'Oh my god, a Toys-R-Us!'
    Geert: 'Is anyone here allergic to cats' Rob: 'I'm allergic to... ugly cats'
    James: 'Spef, 4BLD is easy, what don't you get?' Rob: 'Successes!'
    Rob: 'Ron, how many languages can you speak fluently?' Ron: 'Depends how you count "fluently"' Rob: 'I count in english'


    PS: Maarten, 5.50 on 10 stack, Daniel got 5.56. Daniel has 2.78 on 6 stack and I have 2.84 as well. We are trying to buy these covers for UK comps in the morning, will update on whether we succeed later.
