Congrats to Yu Nakajia! :)
I thought someone would have broken the 3x3x3 single record...
I wasn't hoping that...I mean...9.86 is really fast...and there was so much pressure in the competition...

but Yu did really well...Jean Pons also did a 12.48 avg on first round

and I...well...I did a 16.67 avg in first round...then messed it all on 2nd :D 20.68 avg and 46th place...lol

but I had a +2 that I didn't know was just a penalty and accepted the judge saying "oh, that's a DNF..."...I should know the rules -.-

I believe there was a bet about Matyas in the blindfolded areas
Correct. Stefan and I changed the bet from 50 Euros to 10 Euros because he was short on cash. Then he won 1000 Euro because he got a perfect score (999) on the Revolution.
Really, Stefan won 1k Euro from you?

By the way, welcome back Arnaud.

Apparently the money was gotten from an Official Side Event? That's what I hear anyway.

I'm still short on cash. But the 1k certainly helps. I still intend to win some more at the German championship and to sell some puzzles and stuff. Oh and I don't think it was Winning Moves who pays/doubled the prize money for the Revolution, but Techno Source.

Was Winning Moves involved in the championship and its prizes at all? Or was it Seven Towns? Btw, I gave Techno Source my bank information on Thursday and already received the money Monday, quite fast for international bank transfer I think. Oh and the main guy behind the Revolution table in Budapest was Eric Levin, executive vice president of Techno Source. Don't know the name of the other guy. They were both very friendly, nice guys. The girls were probably just random girls hired for the event in order to look good.
