After a little less than 2.5 years of speed cubing
at the age of 39
I got my first sub-10 single!

U2 B2 U2 R D2 R B2 D2 L U2 L2 D' L' B' D' F2 L' B L2 F
// Missed the obvious green cross and went for orange.

z' y'
R' L' U' L2 U F' L' // My favorite kind of x-cross. I inserted a 1st pair and then finished a cross with cancellation.
U' R U' R' y' U2 R' U' R // easy 2nd pair
L U' L' U2 L U' L' // 3rd pair. my work on deducing hidden pieces paid off. Not long ago I would have to rotate to be sure that it's my edge in the BL. The fact that all last layer edges were oriented and visible also helped with that.
R U' R' U R U R' // 4th pair. Another edge in the back (BU) and similarly easy to deduce.
// OLL. lucky me
U' R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' // Jb
U' U' U' // auufff... realizing it's a good time and panicking...
//finished just in time for sub-10!

9.95
44 htm (or 46 if counting each U' of AUF separately)

Spoiler: Thank you :)

I know it's not a big deal for anyone else than me but nevertheless it's a big deal for me.
I would like to thank
my mom, my wife, my daughter,
authors whose materials helped me the most (FaZ & cubeskills, )
people who helped me with directed advice (ottozing, @Aerma)
community members who gave me support and advice (@Llewelys , @PapaSmurf, .... )

Congrats on the sub 10 imagine you had just missed it and would have been so angry
another fact during your orange cross solution there is a point where the whole green cross is solved
Now I also have made a reconstruction of the solve because it was a great scramble and had many solutions,
This solution would be best for Tymon I guess

Scramble- U2 B2 U2 R D2 R B2 D2 L U2 L2 D' L' B' D' F2 L' B L2 F
Cross- z' y' R' U2 R' F R(solves cross and with 2 F2l Edges for pseudo slot)
F2L CRISIS - 1] y' U L' U L( to insert the yellow blue edge and to orient the white green orange corner and to take out yellow green orange corner)
2] D2 R U' R' (insert yellow green corner in its spot)
3] D U2 R U' R' D( insert white green corner in its spot)
4] U' R U R'( insert the white blue corner to form a multi slot situation)
5] D U' F' U L' U L U2 F u'( solve the white blue edge and yellow blue corner as a pseudo pair, use the F'2gen'F method to avoid rotation and to orient edges)
COLL - R'U'RU'R'U2R RUR'URU2R' ( back sune into sune)
PLL - R2URUR'U'R'U'R'UR'U' (some U perm)

I actually received quite a bit of flak for posting that solve on Reddit. People say it was an insufficient scramble, which i agree, but i still count it even for a hand scramble.

First ever 10 and second 11 in the same half hour
The ten was xcross, f2l, oll, pll, so it was full step. The 11 was the first time I really took advantage of an OLL skip
