Just amazing what he has accomplished, especially at that age! Finally someone who's shown that CFOP is not a requirement for speed.
Hopefully he'll keep on speedcubing, he really has potential to set a few WRs!

They both without doubt are two of the most influential Roux solvers. I just wanted to stress that Sean with his accomplishment has again shown that you don't need CFOP to be fast, not that he was the one to prove Roux's potential. Sorry if this wasn't clear from my initial post.

Decided to give a shot at reconstruction for the first time, burned out after doing 3 solves in a row lmao
Massive respect to Brest who has been doing this for years...

You can find the rest of the solves on the video's comment section if you are curious.

Not really. Plus efficiency and high move count contradict each other. Roux can be efficient but if you look at someone who just started using roux I guarantee you they won’t be magically efficient just because roux is “an efficient method.” I asked him why he uses Roux and he said he got bored with CFOP.

If you all want to talk to Sean himself about it, then go to the Rubik's Cube Amino and say hi! He is the leader of it, and everyone on there is currently freaking out lol
