Wow - lots of competitors this round; to all the new people, welcome! And there were lots of really good times this round, too - perhaps they were easy scrambles?

Alumni (these people have already achieved sub-20 three times with no over 20 results in between, and therefore are considered to have graduated):
  1. mehran_bj6890 19.49

Congratulations to everyone!

Round 72
22.85
24.97, 21.36, 22.32, 23.12, (19.60), 21.74, 21.26, 27.54, 22.88, 22.40, (28.26), 20.88

Would have been a little better except that I was really slow on a couple of G perms in there. If I don't practice my new G perms for a couple of days in a row, I lose them - even several months after learning them. It just takes so long for algorithms to really stick for me.

= 20.11 (σ = 1.52)

Very nice again, with a decent slowest time. A couple of 16s :)

Mike: I had this problem when I was first learning 2 look OLLs and PLLs, but after that it took a lot less time to learn them and for them to stick in my mind. If you get what I mean. Are you sure it isn't just the algorithms themselves? Mine flow very nicely and so are easy to remember. I could even call them sexy (almost).
