    Bell Curve Cubing compared

    I wondered what ELO in Chess i would have, if i can solve the Cube in X Seconds. So I took the Chess Data Base and compared it to the WCA Data Base. Aferwards I did this for Runners too. For example: Around 9-10% of all Chess Players have an ELO of 2000 or higher. This is true for 14 Sec (Ao5)...
