Wow, Erik finally goes sub-13 on the 3x3, and finally gets that 4x4 WR.

Congrats.

Wow, that looks like a great competition to have been at, I am so jealous :( . I must comment on fewest moves lol, 6/11 DNF? You had all that time and you didn't get a full solution down? tut tut, disappointing, save the last 10 minutes to make sure you write down a full solution, I would say is the best strategy.

Yes, but try to do it in competition, 10 minutes is nothing when you have to write down the turns, check and double check.

I did FMC in competiton once, had it all done but had not time to check, and when the solution was tested we found I wrote a L2 instead of F2 at one place = DNF, one of many possible ways to DNF.

It doesn't look like he has been practicing much. DNF'ing twice in a comp for BLD, DNF'ed a magic, etc. His 2x2 times were pretty high considering he used to hold the WR avg. His 4x4 looks quite high too.

Overall though, awesome competition.

What I mean is, specifically reserve the last 10 minutes to write down any adjustments to your solve, and then check/double check. I'm sure these people could all get the scramble out quickly, and then check their solve in less than a minute. Even in less than 2 minutes would allow for 5 check overs...

Have you ever tried FMC at a competition? With 15 minutes left, I once decided to to check my solution, just in case. I couldn't manage to scramble correctly even once by the end of those 15 minutes.
(At least, I'm pretty sure that's how it went. If not, I still had a lot of trouble and got a DNF.)
