Mean of 3: 6.91

Wow, bad. The second and third averages were pretty typical, but I had several cases of really messing up the same PBL in the first average. (emolover's J perm - it's fast for me so I switched to it, but it's risky - I often mess it up)

10.97, 9.15, 20.52, (21.76), 10.47, 14.99, 8.54, 12.54, 11.60, 11.88, (5.91), 17.43 = 12.80

This is my first week with the 2x2. I'm trying to learn Ortega but I think I'm doing something wrong. Every so often I'll have one bar on the top layer in front and I'll do R U' R F2 R' U R' and afterwards I'm left with an upside down T perm. If I get in a hurry and don't notice the T perm I end up with a DNF. What am I missing?

I'm not 100% sure what you mean.
After I'd solve a 7 a T perm would be left over. I think I am mis-identifying the 7 sometimes.
