Hello all and welcome to our new members. Haven't posted for a bit as so many oldies are now on Facebook.
I've been at the Great British Blind Off today. All blind and FMC. The FMC single and mean WRs were beaten which was exciting.
My next MBLD goal is 10 points. It seemed a big stretch to...
Me too but sometimes I have to just remember through brute force which wouldn't be good if short of time. I also might move a pair from the end of one image to the start of the next or come up with a better word but again, that takes time.
Another great comp at Weston-super-Mare. We'll done to @Selkie and @Shaky Hands
I had a poor 4x4 and OH. 3BLD was 3 DNFs but 2 were close and were sub PB. I got a PB single in 3x3 but the real highlight was 7/7 in MBLD. It was as safe as I could make it and it paid off. I'll qualify for the UKs...
True. 7 it is. 5 points should get me a top 20 ranking too.
Biggest problem is getting there this weekend. My car broke and I may not get the courtesy car I was promised. I'll see what tomorrow brings.
I've given up trying to find somewhere quiet to practice MBLD. As I'm competing at the weekend and desperate to practice I've just had to do it in the kitchen area in front of people. Tried 3 yesterday and got 0 in 10:26 but they were close. Today I went super carefully and got 4/4 in 17:06. Not...
Due to tight qualifying I'm only registered for 8 events. Crazier than normal home life and the loss of my lunchtime practice area mean I've only practiced 3BLD.
2x2, skewb and Pyraminx - puzzles still in my case since High Wycombe in April. Alg revision required. No goals.
3x3 - got PBs last...
I find it quite easy to get used to stickerless cubes for blind and that other type of solving. I only prefer stickers for the grip they give.
I've just had a proper look at the schedule for the UK Championship and realised that I won't be competing at all on the Sunday. I'm not telling the wife.
It's not happening at all. An office move meant I lost my practice space. We are getting a new canteen area soon so if that's not too busy I might get started again. Plus, I've lost my good 5x5 which hampers 5BLD.
