3x3 Fingertrick Competition

Wasabi yall!!

The way this works is that you have to try performing the algorithm as fast as you can.
You will have 4 sets, each set containing 3 algs (easy, medium, and hard fingertricks).
For each alg, you will do an average of 5. You do not have to do all of the algorithms (treat the 12 algorithms like 12 wca events).
You are allowed to follow the algorithm while timing yourself, so you can write the alg on piece of paper and try to follow it as fast as you can while timing.
IF you don't want to do that, you are allowed to perform the alg before timing yourself. In this case you can practice and then time yourself whenever you have it memorized.
You are allowed to improve your results as well.
This is a fingertrick competition, it's more about how fast you can fingertrick the cube.

To put in your results, you can use speedsolving format or reddit format.

Speedsolving format:

S3E [<set number 3, easy alg] [Another Example: S2M = set 2 medium alg, S4H = set 4 hard alg]
1. x.xx
2. x.xx
3. x.xx
4. (x.xx) [< your slowest or fastest]
5. (x.xx) [< your slowest of fastest]
Avg: x.xx [< your average]

Example of Speedsolving format:

S4E
1. 1.56
2. (2.02)
3. 1.47
4. (1.04)
5. 1.29
Avg: 1.44

Reddit format:

S1M // x.xx [<your average] = x.xx, x.xx, x.xx, (x.xx), (x.xx)

Example of Reddit format:

S3H // 2.89 = (2.60), 2.89, 3.12, 2.65, (3.48)

Good luck and have fun!!!

You do not need to send any videos since this is a forum comp. You can if you want on Youtube just for fun.
Plus, there's no prizes, just rankings.
