OH Corner Twists

Hi everyone!

Today I was practicing some OH and got a few corner twists especially during specific algs for OLL.

Normally, I just correct the corner twist with both hands, but what would actually happen in a real competition scenario when you need to twist it back? It's nearly impossible to twist a corner with one hand. Have you guys tightened your OH cubes so this doesn't happen? Would you use the table to help twist it back?

Any answers would be appreciated! :)

i thought about this once.
what i'd do is put the cube on the table, twist the layer 45 degrees so the corner is sticking out, then twist it while the cube is pressed against the table.

Yep, it sucks. Try to turn more accurately or maybe use a different cube. In competition, you can't use both hands to correct the twisted corner, so you'll have to practice doing it yourself - probably with the help of the table.
