  1. It is going to happen soon. Maskow's WR can be beaten. Maybe before Worlds 2017(Marcin is going there). There are some people who are close to that. The answer is: who will win that race? It is hard to guess that for me, so I need to know what do you think.

    People who I think are capable to beat that at the moment(except Marcin):
    1. Mark Boyanowski - NAR holder, his PB is 41/42 56:25.
    2. Shivam Bansal - AsR holder and WR2(will be, his new result 38/40 is not uploaded to the WCA at the moment), his PB is 41/43.
    3. Yucheng Chen - WR3, Former AsR holder.
    4. Tom Nelson - He does 42 cube attempts at home, his best is 40/42 in 1:03:03.
    Also I added Kaijun to the vote because he is in top-5 and he holds most BLD WRs.

    If you vote for someone, please explain why.

    I know all those cubers are capable of beating the 41/41 but it's only a few weeks until Worlds and Maskow confirmed he's going for a new WR at Worlds.. So my guess is that no one will beat Maskow until then and after Worlds it's hopeless once again. :)
     
  3. Probably going for 50 or something nuts :p
     
  4. Ok, then make a guess who will get a result that is better than 41/41 54:14, not the WR.

    I voted Shivam; he seems way more consistent than Mark or Tom for example and I don't know much about Yucheng (whereas Kaijun is probably not even trying for now).
     
  6. Kaijun isn't as into mbld as he is 3 4 and 5 although he is good at jt

    Why isn't Maskow on the poll? :p

    Also, I think there should definitely be an "other" category just because I want to see if anyone would vote for that.

  9. I wrote "except Maskow", so obviously I mean who will be the first to get better result than 41/41 in 54:14, except Maskow. People should be more attentive.
    Also I added "other" category.

    Tom doesn't do very well at multi I comp. it would of be interesting to see how he does with 3 attempts at worlds.
     
  11. He has some time to practice before the Worlds. Yes, that's interesting.

    I'd bet actual money on Shivam. Seeing him improve so much and so consistently over the years (not only the amount of cubes but also his accuracy) has been really impressive, and I'd be very surprised if he doesn't keep improving.

    It's really exciting to see Mark and Shivam get so close to the WR but I really wanna see Maskow take it further. After losing his 3BLD WRs I'm feeling a bit sorry for him.

    While Shivam and Mark have the potential to break the 41 points barrier and certainly will podium at Worlds, Maskow is just too far ahead on the game.

    His skill set as a competitive mnemomist gives him an unprecedented lead in comparison to other BLDers. While their execution speed and efficiency counter-compensate for time, Marcin's memory chops are his safety net when it comes to executing a massive amount of cubes.

    And he's been practicing. It's safe to assume the elusive 41 might even be surpassed by someone else before or during Worlds, but I'm sure it won't last long.

    Hard to say. I'd really like it to be Shivam and I know he's fast enough so there's my vote but I really think it's down to who has a good day at the WC.
     
  17. My boy! My 42/42 Mark Boyanowski!
