Yes, I have been practicing by looking at the cube, remember at least 3 edges than look away and start solving. I am just not ready for 4 edges at one time, but this is already a big improvement because I do take much less turns now. The only bad side effect is that I have lost a few PLL's LOL.... Doing crossed only does make me forget everything else.. ha ha ha..37.69 avg12, NICE
have you tried solving the cross blindfolded?
Thanks! Yes, my PLL need great attention as well. But you know, I am really happy that I know the PLLs and that is much faster than multiple look PLL. So I decided that for me it is much to soon to do real PLL training. I watched your PLL attack video. That is just awesome. I know I NEVER will be that fast. I think I need to keep working on crosses as well as it does not come naturally for me. Crosses are still difficult although I am improving.Nice! No freak accident. You're getting better! I enjoy following your progress. Although cross training and F2L look ahead is really important, I think sometime down the line you'll need better LL fingertricks.
Bumping into this thread a week late, but just to say "yep I do this too". The letters don't tell me much.. but when I repeatedly do the moves starting on a solved state cube I will remember much better. Also.. it is fun to do because you recognize other cases where you might use this algorithm as well instead of another.Something I do to remember algorithms is drilling the finger tricks for them
That is almost impossble. I asked this sweet lady to film my solve and she filmed from the audience of course.. I thought it would be fun to have my first few competition solves on video.. Btw, I realised that a few weeks ago I had 48 seconds average. And solving at home is much easier so I should be really happy with an official 40.04 averageNice! That may be hard to reconstruct though
