Goal: sub-12
Cube: Gan Air SM 2019
Method: CFOP

Average of 12: 12.37

1. 13.77
2. (10.20)
3. 10.73
4. 12.89
5. 14.07 (+2) F perm I recognized the AUF incorrectly
6. 12.16
7. 12.19
8. 12.68
9. (15.71)
10. 11.52
11. 11.70
12. 11.99

This was a lot better than my last average I posted but still frustrating, because I was doing pretty good until that plus two which really hurt. Then the 15 really got to me on solve 9. Although the pressure sorta paid off I guess because last three were 11’s. Btw I think I did it correctly but it was a 12 before the plus two so I got a 14 with the penalty applied. I’ll get it next week.

This is an attempt to make to achieve a sub-13 average. CFOP solves with MF3RS2 M.

1) 12.534
2) 13.243
3) 13.929
4) 11.582
5) 12.154
6) 13.832
7) 16.055 (worst)
8) 15.387
9) 14.987
10) 11.039 (best)
11) 14.438
12) 13.840

ao12 = 13.593

Ruined. Only 1/3 of the solves are sub-13. I didn't actively look for F2L pairs and choked. I also didn't plan the first pair well - I fail to do that when the cross is too complicated. LL seems to be fine but I got lockups sometimes. I should practice more, or maybe pick a less ambitious goal...

I choosed CFOP bc it's pretty similiar to beginners Method. Once i wanted to Switch to Roux because of it's few Algs but i Like learning Algs and i think it's easier to improve with CFOP because there are more Algs to learn

Comment: That was a crazy good average. I can't believe I only had 1 counting 18+!

@Ciparo I'm not on the try-hard sub-17 list. I'm not sure why?
