Crazy were in a time where sub 7 averages don't get as much love as they should! Nicely done Anthony!

Was the third solve some BLE? Hard to tell. If not, are you still using it?
Thanks, Jack!

Third solve was OLLCP. I use the BLE cases with two misoriented corners, but not all of the three corner cases. Feliks tells me it's one of his favorite subsets, he may use more of it.

Just counted it out now, I think for 16 of the 27 cases I use an alg as opposed to inserting the edge and doing OLL. I think that for the remaining 9 it's better to just insert to OLL/ZBLL. That's the classic tradeoff with any OLS stuff whether it's WV, CLS, VLS, etc - sometimes it might be faster to do LS/ZBLL than OLS/PLL.

Nice average and reaction! :) Final F2L pair on #2 was dope.

I'll have to consult you on which ones are worthwhile! What alg do you typically use to insert the final edge when you're just gonna setup to ZBLL?

And thanks, Feliks! I thought the final pair on solve 1 was cooler, but it might be hard to follow. Maybe Brest is bored. :p

Good job, Anthony! You seemed surprised at those times. Oh, and I didn't realize you sang so well. Lol
Haha, thanks Dom. Yeah the two solves prior to the average were both 10s, so the average kinda came out of nowhere, making it even better. :)

Haha, we also might have slightly different preferences because I typically try to set up to T ZBLLS since I know so many of those and not as many for other cases. EG for the case with headlights on the right, I'll do U' R U' R' U' R U R' U R U R' to get a T. For the most part, I'll use [U'] F' R U R' U' R' F R though.

I'd be very interested in you and Anthony collaborating on algs as well for BLE. I've really wanted to get it some more exposure in the last couple years but there hasn't been too much interest. I think I've only had like three people send me emails about it in the last four years.

Going back to Anthony now,
Really impressed by your dedication to these LS and LL subsets in the past few years. Keep it up!
