[Member Intro] Amazing!


Sep 22, 2020
Sandnes, Norway
So I just found the word to draw some attention.
I recently attended my first WCA competition and came in last. I've been cubing since the early 1980's. I do 3x3x3 mostly, and can solve 4x4x4 and 5x5x5. I have never yet timed the last two though. Unofficial 3x3x3 pb single is 22.22 sec., set july 22 2020 with ios CubetimerAndScrambler. Earlier than that my pb was 23 seconds I think. Set in 83/84 sometimes with an LL-skip as far as I remember. Scrambled and timed with stopwatch by a friend. I made up various algs back then. Never heard of f2l, oll, pll or pc-generated scrambles.
From 1984 and up to autumn 2019 I've only done occasionally solves now and then. But I started watching videos on YouTube of cubing last autumn and took up my old hobby again. Averaging around a minute at first, but quickly improving. See attachment.
This weekend I attended my first competition. https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/competitions/SandnesOpen2020
Although I came in last, every result I got was my official pb. I don't know if I should call it my "new" official pb, as I never had one recent to that, but there is a great probability that I will Improve as I render more competitions. Whitch I'm planning to do. pb single 3x3x3 - 28.10, avg. 44.25
That's my introduction. Amazing or not. :D
Best regards Morten
