[Member Intro] 2.5 Months a Cuber

Hello, everyone!

My name is Johnny Dorigo Jones, and here is everything.

Current Personal Best Singles:

2x2x2: 3.43
3x3x3: 16.12

Current Averages:

2x2x2: ao100: 10.22
3x3x3: ao100: 32.14 (I have to do a new ao100)

Current Cubes:

2x2x2: MoYu LingPo (Main)
3x3x3: Ganspuzzle III V2, Gans 357 (Main)

Cubing History:

I started cubing April 2, 2015, the day I first memorized how to solve an entire 3x3x3 Rubik's Cube. My friend, user CubesOfTheWorld, introduced me to cubing.

The day after I first memorized how to solve the cube (Beginner's Method), I got a 49.97 solve. Two weeks after that I got a 39.09 solve. My first sub-20 solve, 16.12, came on June 6, 2015. I am basically addicted at this point. I will probably start 4x4x4 soon because I caught onto the 2x2x2 and 3x3x3 fairly quickly, so I want to see if I will do well on the bigger ones as well.

The most difficult thing I have done for cubing so far has been look-ahead. I feel like it will take more time to get good at than I think.

Two months after I started cubing, I was averaging 32.xx seconds for the 3x3x3.


As of June 19, 2015, I currently solve the 3x3x3 using the CFOP method: white or yellow cross on bottom, F2L pairs, 2-Look OLL, and full PLL. I plan on learning full OLL and some algorithms for difficult F2L pairs.

As of June 19, 2015, I currently solve the 2x2x2 using the Ortega method: color neutral first side on bottom, full OLL, finishing algorithms.


Indiana 2015
I went to my first competition, Indiana 2015, on June 13, 2015. The day before this competition, my friend, user CubesOfTheWorld, taught me the basic method for a 2x2x2 cube. I got my 3.43 current 2x2x2 P.B. the day after this at the competition. At Indiana 2015, I competed in 3x3x3 and 2x2x2.

2x2x2: (13.33), (10.45), 12.50, 10.59, 11.22; Average: 11.44
3x3x3: 27.86, 28.39, (30.03), (27.43), 28.40; Average: 28.22

I am very happy about these consistent times. Hopefully I will be able to beat them at Michigan 2015 coming up!


I can do Antisune fairly quickly.
