Could have been sub-9 but terrible lockup on PLL

Shouldn't there be a U at the end? I got AUF.

2x2 Scramble: F2 U2 F' U2 F2 R2 F' U2 F2

Really easy if you know ortega, which I didn't so I used a case I made up.

My time was 2.99.

x' y' //Inspection
U2
R U R' U' R U R' U' R U R' U' //Fix right side
L' U' L U L' U' L U L' U' L U //Fix left side
F2 //Finish it off
U2

27 Moves = (27/2.99) = 9 TPS

2x2 Scramble: F2 R F' R2 F' U R2 U' R'

I got 2.72 using a very awkward first layer solve.

x' //Inspection
R' //2nd First Layer Piece
U2 y R' U' R //3rd
U2 R U R' //First Layer
U //LL Skip

In the same average:

U2 R F U2 R2 U' F R2 F2 U'
My time was 4.46

y' //Inspection + Prediction for OLL (Chameleon)
F' //First Layer
R U R' U' R' F R F' //OLL
R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F' U' //T Perm PLL

Average was 4.59 (First sub 5) - (2.72), 5.80, (8.54+), 3.52, 4.46

x' z
U2 r' R y R U' R' D2 // Xcross
y U2 R' U R U L U L' // F2L-2

I saw the two blocks in the OLS and thought I was going to get a PLL skip, still an easy solve.

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

My time was 3.26 - Would have been way better if I knew ortega

x2 //Inspection + Prediction for OLL (Anti-sune / sune)
R2 F2 R2 //First Layer
U R U R' U R U2 R' U //OLL - PLL Skip

Ortega Solve:

x2 y //Inspection
R U R' U R U2 R' //OLL
R2 F2 R2 U2 //PBL

Almost the same solve, just in a different order :p

Edit:

Another scramble: R' U R2 F' U' F2 R' F2 U2

Time was 2.21

x2 y //Inspection
F R U' R' //First Layer
U' F' R U R' U' L' U R //PLL

13 Moves = 6 TPS

My first post in this thread. Interesting "reversed" white cross around yellow center:

11. 21.39 B2 D R2 U' F2 L2 U L2 U' B2 U' R B' D2 U' R2 F2 D F' R U

I solved the cross in this imaginative way... for me (I'm not a very good cross solver):
(x2) // Inspection
M2 (y) M2 // Cross

The rest of the solve is nothing really worth mentioning, except that the time could have been much, much better :)

Woah easy F2L, kinda failed the solve overall. Would have been a lot better if I had gone with the yellow green pair first.

Was wondering why there were so many weird rotations and I realised it was OH.
