Congratulations to Feliks! However, this average of five shows that he had zero luck. To do that quality of solves but none of them where even sub 5. Clearly his first solve actually both functioned AND looks like a warm-up.

I've been waiting to see an average like this for some time. I will remember of it just as I remember his 6.65 WR.

The ZBLL on solve 2 is interesting (OLL cancelled into T perm). I think the common alg is the move-optimal one starting with either R U' R' U (headlights back) or R' U R U' (headlights front).

I've removed all the unrelated posts and warned the user. Someone asked how they can improve in this thread so we've removed related posts. As far as I know there wasn't a thread merged into it.

Well in the description of Tingman's video of solve 2 Feliks said that he didn't know the zbll and so did the regular oll. He must have recognised that he was going to get a T-Perm and then cancelled into it.

Edit: It looks like the reconstruction that you posted has changed to say "most of oll" and "cancel into pll" instead of "zbll"

That's what it said when I posted it; I just assumed Feliks knew for this ZBLL case that doing OLL at that angle would lead into a T perm while cancelling three moves, as opposed to doing OLL first and looking ahead into what PLL case he'd get.
