20. 10.54 U2 B2 U2 R2 U L2 B2 U' L2 D2 L2 B' R' L U2 L2 F' U B2 D' U'

x2 // Inspection
L D' R' U' R' F R y' L F' L' // X-cross (10/10)

U2 L U' L' // F2L-3 (4/18)
U2 y' R U R' U y' R' U' R // F2L-4 (8/26)

3.5-7 are good splits for f2l-ll, right?

I saw the XX-cross in inspection and the fourth pair was obvious. Easy OLL, and good Y perm execution for once.

2x2: U F2 U F2 U F2 U2 F' U'

I did this in a speed blindfolded solve. Memo was ~30 second - 1 minute.

Solve:
y'
R' //3rd piece
U' R U R U2 R' U' R U R' //4th piece
U' //LL skip

This is really good because it's only R and U turns.

Memo: R' U' Insert Up U'

Time was 1.20. PB for speed bld, and would have been a pb for 2x2 but doesn't count since I don't need to recognize cases.

Also, I was on qqtimer and I noticed this scramble had "BLD" in it: http://prntscr.com/4uoj7m

43. 16.04 D' B2 U' B2 F2 D' B2 R2 B2 L2 D' R L' D' B' L2 F R B' D2 B F'
x' // Inspection
U x' D' M' U' [x' // Cross (4/4)
U y] R' U R // F2L-1 (4/8)
U2 R U' R' U2 R U R' // F2L-2 (8/16)
U' L' U L U L' U L y' L' U L // F2L-3 (11/27)
U R U' R' // F2L-4 (4/31); no pauses at all during F2L, no lockups, F2L was done in ~4 seconds... this solve should've been TPS PB by a long way
F *1x1x3 comes out of cube*

at least it was a good time for having such a big pop (not like the ones were just an edge comes out a bit and you only need to push it back in)

sub-10 not with white cross
