Today I got my first sub 20 Avg. It was 19.48. I got it because I was constantly looking ahead and executing algorithms at max speed. I do not consistently get sub 20 averages. For those of you with constant sub 20 averages please post the biggest tip that helped you get sub 20 solves.

Just practice your f2l and maybe you might want to increase your alg recongization and execution times.

Don't look at the timer while solving. I use to look at the timer just after I finish F2L. I stopped this habit a week ago and now I am consistently sub-20. Also, make sure that you plan out your ENTIRE cross during inspection. Again, this helped get me sub-20.

(1) PRACTICE! This is definitely the main thing that helps you get faster.
(2) If you use CFOP learning all the OLLs and PLLs really helps.
(3) Learning advanced stuff like COLL, ZBLS, and VHLS can also improve times.
(4) Go slow and practice looking ahead.
(5) Drill algorithms.
