Recently, in one of my comps, I got a scramble on square1 that let me get a 12 second single! I broke my pb by landslide. I don’t have the scramble, but I have a vlog of the solve on my channel if anyone wants to analyze it.
you can find the scramble on WCADB.net by looking up the competition, and under the page for the comp, it will have all the scrambles

Odds:

OLL Skip: 1 in 216
PLL Skip: 1 in 72
LL Skip: 216x72: 1 in 15,552

I've had exactly one LL skip using CFOP to date (and one when I was playing with ZZ but pre-oriented edges increases the odds by 8x to 1 in 1,944).

Interesting, didn't knew that pll skip chances were that low !

let me just say, cs timer frequently gives me insanely easy scrambles. LOL. here's one a really long time ago:
D R' U2 R2 B2 F2 R D2 U2 F' R' F L' F D2 F' U'
what makes it even more hilarious is that i use roux. i wasnt that pro at the time of this scramble. i got a 6.593
someone pro at roux would probably get a 3 or 4 on this
That is such a ridiculous scramble. I failed it and got a 6.56, which would be my PB by a second.

5.376. I don't use Roux, my PB with Roux is 21.618 - but my word anyone could get a good time on this scramble.

8.766 with Tripod, almost 2 seconds faster than my Tripod PB. Wish I could get these scrambles in my own sessions lol
