Just got this from cstimer:
F2 U' F2 D B2 L2 B2 L2 F D2 B2 U B' D B2 L F2 D2

3 free and easily preserved pairs for CFOP. Though I couldn't get the rest of the solve to be very easy so I just got 11.33. With a xxxcross like that I'm ashamed it wasn't sub-10 lol

EDIT: found a much better solution than what I did originally (I guess not technically xxxcross, more like freeFOP:

z2 y
R D L y U2 L' U L U2 D R U' R' D U r U2 r' U' M' U M
L F' L' U' L U F U' L'
y' R2 U' R' U' R U R U R U' R

It continues on nicely too:

R' F' R U2 R' F2 R U' F U F' // CMLL (11-2 = 9/20)
U2 M' U M' U' M2 U M2 // LSE (8/28)

E: Another scramble with a short Roux solution.

U2 R2 D' L2 B2 U2 B2 F2 U' B2 D L' B L' U2 F R2 D L2 R' U'

x' L' D2 F' U' B // FB (5/5)
U' R U2 R2 U' R' U2 R' U R U2 (R' M') U' R // SB (14/19) (CMLL skip)
M2 U' r' F R U M' U' R' F' R // 4a (setup 4b) (11/30)
M2 // 4b (1/31)
U' // 4c (1/32)

Is there anything easy about this scramble F' L2 F2 D' B2 L' F2 D L F' L2 B' R2 U2 F D2 F U2 B2 R2?
I am asking this because i got my pb (14.904) on this scramble and I am still trying to figure out why:mad:!
During a speedsolve, it's usually the way you do your first steps that will give you a skip or an easy case. Also, what method were you using?
