went a bit further organizing the cycles, the corner cycles, its arbitrary but usefull for my style wich is pretty standard i think. the algs with a letter A have two pieces in the L layer (except for those cases where there is no such thing) so B and C cases of the same case (number) share alg, with some exceptions

Had a lot of things going on at a competition this weekend
https://m.cubecomps.com/competitions/3724/events

- 4bld was okay, not so good memo and took it pretty safe during the execution. 4:01 and 2nd place. PR is 3:56 but I've clearly made progress. I should expect mid-3 minute solves soon.

- MBLD: Got a 25/25 in 55:22, my former NR was 20/21 and my PB at home is 21/21. I'm extremely happy about this, puts me 19th in the world.

- 3BLD: I got NR single 31.83 (not awesome, sub-30 coming next time). I'm pretty disappointed since I missed a great mean on both rounds (finals were DNF (33.xy, apparently I messed it during the very last alg), 31.83, 33.04 so it would've been a sub-33 mean (my NR mean is 40.95 but it's not good by any means)

- 5BLD: Okay, so Ville's former WR has stood since 2011, the video says it all.
Not too bad though, I got a success I needed to put me number 1 in Finnish overall kinchranks and bld event kinchranks.

It was definitely my favourite comp so far, I set a lot of records in many events. It's just the beginning.

Hey, so the only cubes I can do BLD are 2x2 and 3x3. What's the easiest WCA event to do BLD that's not an NxN?
Clock, probably. Pyraminx also is pretty easy, and skewb is not that difficult either. Megaminx is quite challenging - not complicated from a solving perspective, but very difficult to memorize. And square-1 is very challenging too, for very different reasons from megaminx.
What is auditory loop?
Auditory loop is just memorizing a quick string of syllables by saying them (or saying them in your head) - the human brain is wired to be able to remember a short string of syllables very easily for short periods of time, and if you repeat those syllables a few times before beginning to solve, it can lead to very quick memorization and recall for small amounts of memorization. Most good 3BLD solvers memorize at least edges in auditory loop, and a few seem to memorize a whole cube in it. For 4BLD, the common thing these days seems to be to memorize wings with auditory loop (although that's more information than I can seem to remember with it, so I just put corners in my 4BLD auditory loop).
