Round 180
Race to sub-25
VALK 3 (Stickerless)
CFOP

I'm still oscillating and not necessarily going the right direction, but this week I don't care. I got an 18.883 in there (clearly tossed out for the average), but that was a large margin over my previous PB and my first sub-20 single.

Ao12 = 27.665

25.898, 26.165, 30.353, 25.152, 29.503, (18.883*),
26.485, [31.853], 26.289, 30.921, 27.636, 28.249

Round 181
Race to Sub-30

Ao12: 29.33


30.29, 32.12, 31.25, 29.85, 27.00, 27.72, 28.71, 26.94, (26.38), 27.79, 31.62, (39.26)

The first three solves were kinda wonky, but I managed to get it together after that. The last time was due to me messing up the permutation of the M slice right at the end. All in all I'm rather pleased with this round.

Round 181
Race to sub-25
ZZ (OCLL, PLL)
Moyu Aolong V2
Ao12: 31.51

33.20+, (20.93), 29.76, 24.88, (41.99), 28.21, 38.35, 29.86, 41.67, 32.96, 32.32, 23.90

I din't think I could do worse than last time...

In practice I got my best single solve (17.97) and best Ao12 (24.07) and made very few mistakes (only 8% of solves were over 30). And yet for the race scrambles it was like my brain had forgotten how to solve a cube. Just mistake after mistake.

At least I've got Easter to do a lot of practicing. Maybe I'll be good next week :/

1. Messed up F2L 2nd slot and then failed to align U layer at the end for a +2.
2. A bit slow on an easy J perm else this might've been sub-20.
3. Messed up EO, caught it but then took quite a while to correct it.
4. A bit slow on F2L 3rd slot.
5. Messed up EO, didn't realize it until I'd repeatedly messed up F2L slots as a result.
6. Hit N perm which I didn't have the confidence to try and so 2-stepped it.
7. Messed up EO, then messed up Sune :O
8. No mistakes, just slow.
9. Messed up EO again.
10. Inserted F2L 1st slot in wrong position.
11. Messed up F2L 1st slot and had to redo it.

Please read first - thanks.

You still have until end of Monday April 17th to do Round 181. However I'm off on some travels next week and am unlikely to be able to post new scrambles whilst away. Therefore please find below the scrambles for Round 182 in advance.

Please be clear about which round (181 or 182) you are submitting results for. I will post the weekly summary on April 24th together with the scrambles for Round 183.

I tried to be a bit more colour neutral in this round, hence the huge time inconsistencies.

PLL skip on 11, makes a big difference. Shows how much locking I get due to my squishing (miss alignment) of center layers on 4x4.
