Who can learn all ZB/ZBLL algorithms the fastest?

Rules:

First choose if you want to compete in the race to ZB or to ZBLL.
Post your progress regularly.
Don't lie.

List of competitors for ZB:

Maarten Smit

List of competitors for ZBLL:

Brian Yu

My progress:

ZBF2L: 21/306
ZBLL: 0/494

Next that will be learned: I will finish VHF2L and then use it in my practise solving, when I have mastered VHF2L I will start with the no corner permutation version of the T-orientation. Then I will do the Basic ZBF2L.

Lol, this thread is a joke right? Like, you think you can just learn full ZB like this? good luck...
It's a joke if you think we think we can just learn full ZB like this. But if you think I can't learn full ZB in... a long time, you're wrong. Totally.
ZBLL: 0/494
ZBLL includes all COLL and PLL algs, so you probably know more than that.

I have a huge list of (ZB)LL algs; suggestions for a good heuristic for filtering "useful" ones are welcome.

I guess I'll put my name down as well, I want to beat Spef in at least one thing. Scrolling through the cases, I could quickly recall how to solve 102/177. I know I missed some, because the images look quite different from real cube. It's probably safe to say I know 60%.
True, but I try to keep it all organized. I have a (not yet completed) list of ZBLL algs, and I will just work off that list and not already say I know a case when I haven't seen it yet.

Oh no... Johannes is entering... well theres the winner right there...
Sign me up tho.

I think I'll end up using mainly LUR and LFR algs and learning the 177 unique cases then since they are LUR you can easily mirror them. Inverses will be a little harder but not much. But yea, with ZBLL you pretty much have to find your own algs. Unless you are good with ACube it may take awhile... There are a few lists online I think, you just have to sift thru algs that were brute-forced and add finger tricks and stuff.
I think I will use only F<U,R>F', LUR, and LFR algs as I will be learning these algs straight to OH so no OH amnesia just 2H amnesia on them :)

Full ZB might be a little much... but just ZBLL shouldn't be near as bad. Its only 177 algs plus mirrors and inverses... haha.

P.S. - these races are getting out of control, don't go too far with them.
Lets make a full last layer race maybe?

I think that maybe in the next 5-10 years someone will remember all of the algs for full ZB, and have really good recognition and finger tricks, and look ahead, they that person will totally kill us all.

But that is not going to be me. I'm not planning on learning any ZB cases, and I think that this thread will go dead before the winner is found. But I don't doubt that someone will get it.

Just memorizing 177+ algs? Maybe that could be done in a summer. But getting them down in muscle memory so that you can perform each alg in 2 seconds or less probably will take much longer time.

Oh, that's pretty simple... First you recognize the COLL case (which can be done really fast) and then you look what edge permutation you have. You look at the FRU corner, and you decide if FU and FUR are connected (C) adjacent (A) or opposite(O). Then you do the same for RU and RFU. There are 3 special cases though... That's because there are 4 possibilities for A/A, so you need another recognition method. You have C/O X, which means that FU and RFU are the same and RU and FUR are opposite, you have O/C X, which is obvious and you have Opp X, where both FU and RFU, and FUR and RU are opposite. On the combination of that edge code and the COLL case you can decide on the ZBLL case.
