Hey, I'm creating a thread devoted to following the happenings of all the famous cubers (Like Feliks, Max Park, Lucas Etter, etc.) I'll start out by mentioning that Feliks got a 7.96 OH single a few hours ago, which means he now has 3 sub 8 singles, while nobody else has one. He also got a 6.38 3x3 average (0.01 below Max Park's PB) and a 6.23 3x3 average within the last few hours.

Kevin Hays, referring to his 7x7 2:23.71 NAR mean, just wrote "should be able to obliterate this next weekend".

We got a very cocky cuber here. :p

So for US Nationals, Max Park is strong favorite for 3x3 and 4x4, while Kevin Hays will almost certainly win 6x6 and 7x7. Also I think Max Park is slight favorite for 5x5. Very high level in BLD too, but hard to predict anything.

Meanwhile in London, Feliks and Sebastian in the same competition for the third time ever (WC 2013, Euro 2016, London Open 2017). :eek:

I think this has been Feliks' least impressive day on the Latin American Cubing Tour, but at the end of the day he got 5 world records (Including the 4x4 single, which was pretty difficult to get, and the 3x3 average) so it was very successful.

Lucas Etter was the "strong favorite" in 2015 by that standard.

Park is the favorite, but not a strong favorite.

2017 3x3 averages for Park:

6.xx - 10 (56%)
7.xx - 8 (44%)

Etter:

6.xx - 2 (13%)
7.xx - 10 (63%)
8.xx - 4 (25%)

Wang:

7.xx - 8 (89%)
8.xx - 1 (11%)

Those are just the top 3 on the psych sheet, several people have a good shot. I'd say Park has at most a 60% chance of winning.
