10 years into casually cubing on and off, from the age of 8 - after averaging 22 seconds for the last 6-7 years - after just 4 months of practice I accomplished one of my greatest goals: to achieve a sub 10 solve, while averaging ~15-16s. Couldn't be happier!

Just got my first ever sub 10 ! I can't believe it, I was just chilling watching some twitch streams with 0 focus and it dropped. 2 days after my last single pb (10.12).

Random PB ao12 (was 12.40 for months until two weeks ago, then it dropped to 12.25 yesterday and further to 11.82 today):

The sub-10 was some horribly inefficient F2L into an LL skip. Funny how that works out.

OMG! I just got a 28 FMC Pb single by a long shot!

Scramble: L2 D’ F2 R2 B’ U2 R2 B U B’ L F2 R U2 F2 L U2 L2 U2

B R2 U’ D’ B // EO (5/5)
D2 F2 // 2x2x2 (2/7)
D L’ D2 B2 D // 2x2x3 (5/12)
U’ L2 U L’ // All but 4c (4/16)
L U L’ R’ U2 L U2 L’ U2 R U’ L U2 L’ U2 // 4c (15/31)

Final solution: B R2 U’ D’ B D2 F2 D L’ D2 B2 D U’ L2 U2 L’ R’ U2 L U2 L’ U2 R U’ L U2 L’ U2 (28)

I don’t know if this scramble was lucky or I just found a really good EO but that was an awesome scramble! I found this in 15 minutes. It was ridiculous.

In the end a luck single is going to happen to everyone at one point or another, so I do not care if that is the legit time that you got (congrats if it is) but the only reason I am posting this is to make sure that everything is legit and what you are saying is in no way made up/you practiced the solve a few times before timing yourself, or that the scramble is self made, since it is a really easy and dumb scramble. Please do not take any of this wrong, but rather try to understand from others outside view of this all the slight doubt that others might have, based on your previous posts and this time.

I can't believe it, finally after putting a lot of work I managed to reach the goal of being sub-20!
I'm very happy and motivated to learn full OLL now!

Thats ok... There is no exact sub-x definition, so you can consider what you think is best. I wish luck is the best for you to be sub10 in what you think!!
Nice ao12 btw!
