under your bed.
The FB on this scramble is dumb. U2 R' B2 L2 D2 F2 D2 B2 L' U' F' D' U R' B2.
The FB is x y2 U M' E F' B. Naturally, i screwed up the rest of the solve and got a 22 cause i wasnt looking ahead, but it really could have been a good solve, rip potential sub-20 ao5 lol.

So, I got a 3x3 scramble today where there were 2 F2L pairs on white cross already made, and 1 pair that was 1 move away from being paired, while preserving the first 2. I was just wondering what I could have done to make this solve very good. You can format it like the 3x3 example solve thread, where you just go through the whole solve move-by-move. This thread can be used in the future for scrambles like this also.

Here is my scramble: R' F L2 D2 F D2 R2 B' F2 L2 F2 D' L F2 D' R' B' F2 U2

That's my pathetic solution lol

In the corners-first example solve game, I started a really good solve using modified PCMS(Pairs, CMSLL, EO, EP). I was 28 moves with only EP left, and then I totally butchered it. How could I have done EP better?
