Easy scramble, managed to look ahead to first pair and the rest of F2L was super easy too.

Also awesome because I could use a ZBLL. Recognition took 3 seconds tho

21. 10.52 B2 F2 D R2 U L2 D R2 B2 R2 U2 R' U' B2 F D L2 B U B'

I'd been doing Roux before this, so my lookahead was awful...

x2 // Inspection
L2 R' [U' D'] F // X-Cross (4/4)
U' R' U R // F2L-2 (4/8)
d R U' R' // F2L-3 (4/12)
U2 F U' F' U2 L' U' L // F2L-4 (8/20) (Thinking things like 'oh hey look it's a pure OLL' distracts me during solves...)
OLL, PLL.

whenever I do a Roux session, I always get really good CFOP scrambles

A lot of connected pairs for bottom cross, but while fooling around with it I found a fun cross-on-left solution.

x' // inspection
U F L2 U F2 L // xcross
U' R' U // pair 2
D R' D' x R D R' D' // pair 3
x R2 U R2 U' R2 U R' U' // pair 4
