With the great idea of Koreancuber of host a competition to race to sub 20 avg i decided to create an similar competition since this is a great way to motivate the training.

The goal of the competition is to get an average of 12 sub15.

So if you already hit sub20 and now want to hit sub15 join it! We will have weekly scrambles so we can check everyones performance!

Any suggestions PM me or post here.

Weekly Competition #1

Average: 18.61
Times: 18.64, (13.33), 15.50, 19.86, (19.98), 19.21, 19.09, 18.98, 19.96, 17.95, 19.30, 17.65


If you can make a video it would be great! So that everyone can see your cubing style and maybe help you. If you cant make a video just post the times here.


  • The scrambles will be WCA scrambles. You are supposed to scramble with the white on top and green on front (or follow the rule 4d).
  • If you miss a weekly competition don't post your times late, wait until the next one.

Have fun and practice a lot!

I can solve 18.xx pretty consistently AO12 and 17.xx sometimes. For AO5, I can usually get 17.xx and sometimes 16.xx.

I'm having a lot of trouble getting my time down any further, though...any ideas?

Do you know full fridrich? Other than that is just keep praticing finger tricks and lookahead.

And keep looking for new solutions if you're dissatisfied with some that you are using. PLLs you hate might turn into your favorite PLLs.

Also, practice consistent sub2 cross.

Awesome. I'm excited to progress with you guys :)

EDIT:

Can I make a suggestion? When we do weekly sets - I suggest we do a set of 5 as well as a set of 12. Having both sets will give you a better indication of your status.

In, but I may forget :p

Currently averaging 16 - 17 with 2 look OLL, full PLL, and intuitive F2L with no look ahead and a crappy cross :D

What do you consider sub 15? AO5, 12, 100?

I've already had sub 15 averages of 5 and 12, but I'm definately not sub 15.

We can make that, but it think it wouldn't add that much... I think it would be better if we consider the best RAO5 in the AO12 too.

The initial idea was to consider AO12, but we are up to suggestions =D
