sub 7 on 2x2
ao50-6.7
ao100-6.96
also beat all other PBs on 2x2 apart from single
ao3-4.99
ao5-5.27
ao12-6.24
ao1000-8.28 but basically continously rolling

Very unconventional roux solve! It’s my PB and I’m very happy that I was able to pull this off. I average 19ish and my previous PB was a 13.63.
And yes, there were some cancellations that I could have made but I don’t really care. If you’ll notice, after I finish left block I’ve actually finished all of f2l in 20 STM and 24 HTM. I don’t know OLL because I use roux, so I couldn’t have done the solve algorithmically from there.

Please try the scramble and solve, I really like it.

The OLL is for that case is exactly what you did except the last two moves are inverted

M’ U M U2 M’ U M' // You EO solution
M’ U M U2 M’ U' M // The standard OLL

There's also R U R' U' M' U R U' Rw' and its inverse.

Nice solve btw.

Nice job on PB! I liked how you implemented free block building; I should probably start doing that.

Ok, cool. Thanks for the info. And GJ on your TH PB!

Thank you! I do it sometimes when it’s easy enough but usually it doesn’t go so well. I’m a roux user coming from CFOP, so I have opened up a lot of avenues for interesting blockbuilding that was limited by CFOP, so I may have over corrected and made my solves too complicated at the stage I am at! Please let me know what you would have done in this case, I am interested to know.

After 4 months of cubing (+3 days) here I am:
Single: 12.24
Ao5: 16.59 (PBed 3 times today)
Ao12: 17.87 (PBed today
Ao50: 19.21
Ao100: 19.48

I'm really happy with this but I will change my way of learning and practicing, now focusing more on learning new things than just doing solves.
So in these last 3 days, I learned 12 OLL (I'm at about 40). Next I want to be color opposite then I want to learn as much F2L as possible. Still a lot of thing to learn

If I were doing OH, which is my main event, I wouldnt do free block build not because the technique is bad, but I wouldnt like rotating z to do L moves. For 2 hands, L moves can still get weird, as in doing RU and LU (like CFOP) stuff together might cause regrip issues on both hands. It's been so long since ive actually used/tried free block build that I forgot it existed. overall, i dont really recommend it, but it's ok if you really see easy cases.

For your PB scramble I would have done the following (for OH and 2H):
z2 // rotate
R' D2 // first sq
U' r2 U2 R B' // finish FB
r2 U' R' U' M U r' // sq of SB
U' r2 R U R // finish SB
CMLL and LSE as normal afterwards

there were some SB pairs that i broke during FB, but some extra AUFs to preserve them during FB solving should be ok.

I have been cubing cubing for about 3 months. I practice a lot. I know full pll. F2l and about 40 oll algorithms my pb single Is 18. I am 12. Does anyone have any tips for me
