Race to sub-11 (0/3)

Ao12: 11.28

1. 11.49
2. 12.09
3. 10.29
4. 11.67
5. 10.93
6. 11.86
7. (13.49)
8. 12.84
9. 10.06
10. 11.13
11. (7.38)
12. 10.46

Unfortunately I didn't meet my goal but I nice single, technically PB2 but it was keyboard.

I'll reconstruct it:
Scramble:
U F2 U L2 B2 L2 D2 B2 U' L2 D B2 F' U2 B R2 D' B' F2

Solution:
y z2 // Inspection
R L' U L' D // X-Cross [5]
U' L' U2 L U L' U' L // 2nd Pair [8/13]
R U2 R2 U' R // 3rd Pair [5/18]
R U R' U2 R U R' // 4th Pair [7/25]
U' F R U' R' U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R F' U' // LL [19/44]

44 moves = 5.96 TPS
I executed the X-Cross very poorly and fumbled on LL so TPS was pretty bad.
Also all Edges were oriented right away so it was technically EO-Cross

Edit: got it down to 4.85 after 3 more tries
This solve had actual potential :-(

Comment: Back half were super easy scrambles, made up for my bad performance on the first 5. #11 was a ridiculous scramble, WR material. #11 also beat PB, but I'm not counting it.

Comment: This set of 12 was all over the place - some great solves by my standards, a few mediocre to poor solves and then enough bad solves to tank the average. I keep saying I need to eliminate these disaster solves, but it's easier said than done. Still... very happy with a counting 15, so there is that.

Avg of 12: 20.91 (0/3)

1. 24.59 - Recognized wrong PLL
2. 22.01
3. 17.74
4. 22.14 - Messy PLL
5. 17.21 - OCLL skip
6. 15.71 - Clean solve with very good lookahead during F2L
7. 23.36 - Slow F2L
8. (15.04) - Another solve with good F2L lookahead plus the last slot pair was prebuilt
9. 21.98 - Hard EOLine
10. 21.82
11. 22.52
12. (27.08) - Bad PLL execution kinda messing up the end and had to improvise the finish
