x2
L // cross
R' U2 R d' R U' R' // 1st pair
L' U L //2nd pair
y' L U L' U L U' L'// 3rd pair
U L' U2 L U2 L' U L //last pair
R' U' R U' R' U2 R // OLL
E-Perm

Stupid E-Perm, maybe COLL would've helped to avoid the E-perm. Any ideas?

After forming the last pair, you had an easy WV case that you could've performed to avoid both OLL and that diag swap

Green cross is 2 moves, but with 5 you can preserve a free pair. I don't even use CFOP normally and I got 19.40 with CFOP and 18.42 with ZZ.

I got a 5 move X-Cross on 3x3 into a 3 move pair. The rest of the F2L was normal, but then I got antisune J Perm. PB of 11.01!

Pretty crazy. This was from qqtimer. Too bad I didn't get a great time on it.

EDIT: less than 10 solves later, I got this weird one. Look at all the yellow on the white face! Nearly a beginner's method F1L skip. ;)

The number of moves on that solve is sub-UWR for FMC...
