So today during cross practice, I decided to not be lazy, and really try to plan out the cross for 7 moves or under. After only 2 or 3, I landed (with 25 random cube turns) on a situation that I can *not* do in under 8 moves. In theory there are only about 100 of these situations out of 190,000, and I'm having a hard time believing that I have randomly found one so quickly.

So, presented for your solving, hard cross #1. Scramble with white on top, green front, and please solve cross on white:

B D2 F2 R2 D2 B' D2 R2 D2 F' U2 R' U' L U2 L2 B L U' F' R'

I've actually been thinking that I should record crosses that I have particular difficulty with and see how someone with more experience would solve them. Perhaps I should start putting more hard crosses in this thread.

Any input on the above situation is appreciated.

Brian.
