i was using official scrambles and i dont mess up when i scramble them either. ended on 13 which is an unlucky number? best averages of my life all times were like under 7 seconds. really weird though i should share. sorry if this is the wrong forum.

haha i know right? it was so weird though

If you orient first and then permute when solving 2x2 then the probability of that is 1/6^13 = 1/13060694016

That is a one in thirteen billion chance approximately. As a comparison, that is like flipping heads on a coin 34 times in a row. That is also 54 times luckier than getting two full LL skips on 3x3x3 in a row.

Which basically means that few of us believe you.
I won't say it's impossible, since it clearly is possible. I just think that getting such a string of PLL skips (also you did not mention anything about LL skips, so that is how I calculated it) is incredibly improbable. You basically just hit the super multi-million dollar jackpot on the lottery with those odds.

False.

That's for getting 13 PLL skips in certain 13 solves. But what is the probability of getting 13 PLL skips in a row somewhere in let's say 100 solves?

I just scrambled the cube the way it told me and after 3 pll skips in a row i started counting cause that was really weird. they are so much easier to get on the 2x2. it was really weird but i swear to you guys im not lieing. i guess iwas just really lucky.

Exactly 13 or >=13?

no i got exactly 13 skips. 14 was just a regular oll pll

I meant the second version, but now I'm interested in both (and btw I don't know the answers).

I still find myself extremely skeptical. The odds of getting a pll skip 13 times in a row is less than the odds of getting a jackpot on a slot machine. (Really!)

no i dont have the scrambles. idc if you believe me or not i just thought i should share. i did get it though and since im a slow 2x2 solver almost all of my times were under 7. for good people they wouldlve been like under 3 though lol.

What method do you actually use?

I'm embarrassed because using Guimond, I'm generally barely under 7 seconds even when I get to skip the last step.

i just solve one side then oll and pll its really easy. i can average under 10 easily.

And here's how to do 3x3x3 in under five seconds: Cross, F2L, OLL, PLL. Just do it really fast.
