There's an explanation video by yusheng, https://weibo.com/tv/v/H49o3DLuz?fid=1034:4309893981607643 (I'm not sure whether it can be accessed out of chinese mainland)

Simple translation:
FIrstly I found such piece for red cross. Then I found this F(2L block) and this F(2L block), and found this piece.
I did this piece first, and put this F(2L block), and then finished this piece for cross.
When handling cross, this F(2L block) can be solved simultaneously.
Then there is a standard F2L (3-move F2L) here, and then the last F(2L block)
Then the fish-like OLL (7-move OLL), and PLL skipped.

But, if you break it down, that is literally petrus.

It's also CFOP, and it's also ZZ-d. Fact of the matter is the easiest solves can be classified as multiple different methods, but his explanation clearly shows that the intent was to do CFOP

Could you maybe do a reconstruction with ZZ-d terminology?

Huh.

Personally, I think this WR single can show that multiple methods are all viable of getting insane WR solves.

Thanks for the ZZ-d reconstruction.

I still think it's Petrus. In ZZ, the primary goal is to do eo then to blockbuild. In Petrus it's to blockbuild then to eo, and the solution much more resembles Petrus than cfop. Also, the idea that it was done purposefully with anything other than cfop is wrong, but the actual solve is a Petrus solve. And also, I don't think that calling it ZZ-D is correct, otherwise 1/6 of my solves would be ZZ-D and they're not. They could be called accidental ZZ-D solves, just like this is an accidental Petrus solve, but it isn't a ZZ solve imo,

I'll admit it is a bit strange he is the only one who got a good time on the scramble, but it seems plausible at least. If it wasn't an obvious XXcross, the lower-caliber competitors may not have recognized it. And the only other sub-8 cubers there were Antoine and Kaijun. Kaijun uses Roux. And Antoine only does orange-red cross so the XXcross may have been on a different colour.
He did the cross in red. So, he might be colour neutral which gave him the advantage. Or he might have taken a risk with the red.
But he is also a sub 8 cuber. See his wca profile.

No way, unbelievable, should have been Jay, why wasn’t this me, should have been max, why, wow, first sub 4, scramble?, solution?, why T noodle why... are just some of my thoughts after seeing this
Should have been jay smh

GJ anyway!
am very sceptical, this doesn't add up in the slightest...
I think any sensible person would go for a double X-cross even if it wasnt their main color, so its still odd that NO ONE had a signifficantly better solve, even sur-10 cubers. However, given this, I unfortunately will have to accept the time as legit. For now at least.

Edit: Video went up after I started typing, Ill watch it now

Edit 2: The dude did like 10 moves total wtf
I want to believe it but I just can't. This HAS to have been a mis scramble. No way nobody else got anything good on this scramble but some guy gets a 3. What in the world... Just no...


let's hope he was and has a better video
for me, he kinda looks like he was turning the cube in inspection time. but still, the solve has no pauses, and even if it was fake, that's really cool.
