Round 76
23.04
(18.81), 26.58, 22.10, 24.21, 21.28, 24.25, 19.04, 26.30, 24.89, (45.06), 22.43, 19.27

Do I win the prize for most inconsistent this round? :fp The 45 second solve was me messing up a G perm, and then not caring enough to try to finish the solve fast from there. Three sub-20's in a single average was nice, though.

AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

17.53, 21.48, 23.01, 19.57, 16.79, 25.14, 21.13, 18.53, 18.54, 19.22, 21.54, 19.57 = 20.01avg

I locked up on the last PLL knowing I needed a low 19 to be sub 20.

Looks like I'll be here for at least 3 more weeks.

7 sub 20s and it's surprising how often I have a sub 17 followed by a disaster.

I'll stick around in this thread until I can constantly average sub-20 in every solve and average. Hope you guys don't mind.

= 19.71 (σ = 1.70)

Graduated :)

Do you mind if I stick around for a bit until I'm confidently sub-20? I would feel a bit (ie. very) nervous in the sub- 15 group.
