Nice job Geert!

I'm still working on my memo System, tried tapping first now changed to images.
I tried tapping, but that didn't work for me.
I now assign letters to each sticker and remember them in pairs, that seems to be working for me.
And it makes it easy to keep track of parity :)

More practice -> you will get more familiar with your setup moves for each piece, so execution will become more fluent and your success rate will rise. I'm not sure if you use T-perm only for edges, you could try using J-perms as well.
Also your d2 looks weird :p maybe you should use a cube that's more tight, so you can do d2 just by pushing the middle layer with your middle finger

I do use J-perms
And I do my d2 weird so I don't forget to undo it...correctly, I often make a mistake when I undo the d2, I do a D2 instead...

Hi Geert, welcome to the BLD club!
Let's race at the next comp :)

pro tip for OP: to shoot to LU use x' R2 U' R' U x R' F' U' F R U R' U', this makes set ups for the L face so much easier.

Same with Cubenovice, L face is annoying when it comes to setup moves. That alg he posted is great. I would use it. As for memo, that will come with time. You'll notice a drop in your times altogether as your execution becomes more solid (setup moves) and memo becomes easier (less time to think about the sticker/placement)
All in all, good job man.
