    What's allowed in competitions?

    Is this tournament trick legit? So lets say I have like 18.22,17.58, 19.84, 22.56 in a tournament, and it's your last solve. If you see that you messed up your solve, can you just stop the solve, count that as a DNF, and it will be an average of 4? Also, can anyone tell are there strategies...

    WCA rules for DNFs?

    Let's say that you like screwed up your Pll and your time goes wayyyy off. Can you just stop the time randomly during the solve and accept the DNF? Does that mean that your worst time from your 4 will count as that one?

    Top speedcubers?

    [Help Thread] Colour Neutrality Discussion

    Color neutrality worth it? I just recently broke sub 30, and average about 28 seconds now. I was watching some x cross videos, and they all said that you need to be color neutral. I've tried a few solves, but the f2l was very slow. Should I bother learning this at this stage? Will it help me...

    Tournament questiosn

    Can someone explain to me how tournaments work? Like for 3x3, do they ask you to do your 5 solves one after the other or is there a break in between? If so, how long is the break? Thanks
