Congrats! Very happy for him, especially because he emailed me for tips in 2015 shortly after I got my 5.94 average in China.
He also got a 5.34 average in the finals, 0.01 off former WR.

Decent solve, my 3rd best official single.
The average was 7.15 6.30 5.92 (5.19) (9.94) = 6.46. It could have been WR but I got nervous and flopped on the last solve after realizing that and getting a pretty nice scramble. :( That being said, it would have been a 5.80 average at best, not quite...
Yay! The average is .01 off PB/UWR. This is what happens when I get in the zone and get lucky scrambles! Cleaning and re-lubing the puzzle this week also helped a bit. :)
Surprisingly this could have even been a little better: there were small mistakes at the end of the 3rd and 5th solves. Those...
Done on April 3, 2016 at Exeter Open 2016, almost exactly one year after my 4.80 WR single (April 4, 2015 at Xi'an Cherry Blossom 2015)! :D

The results for all competitions this year have been posted, so just like last year, I have created a set of sporcle quizzes which ask you to name the top n in either the single or average rankings of a given event or events. The answers for these will not change even when any 2016 results are...
First sub-1! Could have been faster without a couple minor mistakes on LL, but I can't really complain about the end result.

Some history: On May 8, 2010, I released my first Sporcle quiz, in which you were asked to name the competitors in the top 100 for 3x3 single. However, as it was meant to reflect the "current" rankings, it required constant updating, plus the result statistics were rendered meaningless.
