15. ### How to Get More Efficient at 15 Puzzle

Hello. I am a beginner at 15 puzzle, I started 2 days ago. I average around 40-50 seconds and about 140-160 moves but I can see that most pros average around 60 to 70. I use LBL and I am trying to learn Fringe. I figured that if I can get my move count down, that my times will decrease...
