Congrats man!

I'm hoping on gettin my first successful blindsolve in competition this weekend at the Danish Open. I got 3 DNFs on my last comp :(

I can imagine that it feels good!

How many failed attempts did you have before this?

What did you have in your ears?

2i) While competing, competitors must not use sound equipment, other electronic equipment (like walkmans, dictaphones or additional lighting).

Simon: According to his WCA profile, one DNF.

Yeah it felt really good. it's was a big releave.

This was my second attempt. i screwed the first one up. (did a wrong turn somewhere i think.

So i took the second (and last) atttempt a bit slower. I really wanted to succeed :D. The second solve was directly after my first one, like one minute in between, hehe. But the second one went great.

memo was around 2 min, solve the rest :)

It were earplugs from a diskman or something. but there was nothing at the end of it :). i tried to make a bit more silent for me. Next time i will use real earplugs.
