Extremely happy with this attempt :D my first podium at a World Championship!

Thank you to all the Indian cubers, and my viewers on my channel and all cubers here on the forums for their immense support and encouragement :)

Also Thanks to Bhargav Narasimhan for judging! and Thanks to Aniket Das for judging my first attempt! :D

Nice job! Just wondering, why did you go for 4 cubes on your second attempt?

Thanks! :) there were 3 attempts in 3 days and at home I usually do 2 attempts every three days so its easier to forget my previous attempt memo. so I just did 4/4 on the second attempt so I could rest my mind and do better on the last attempt which fortunately worked :D

What do you think about having multiple sets of rooms? So you have rooms not for 39, but for 78 cubes, and each day you use different set(day 1: 1-39, day 2: 40-78, day 3: 1-39, etc.). I have 2 sets for my MBLD, but the 2nd doesn't work fast at the moment.
And nice job BTW.

Thanks! :) I have thought about it yes but I use 1 room per cube so it's a bit difficult now to find 50ish more rooms I am familiar with, although I will try to compile a new set of rooms soon if it's not too difficult.

Congrats Shivam!
Thanks :D

Congrats Shivam, well deserved!!
Thanks Ainesh! :D

I think this was a good tactic. It's not just about not enough rooms. Multi is mentally tiring and having a rest day makes sense, and worked out well for you. Dropping to 40 cubes was also a good move. Well played :)

yep well said. Thanks :D I remember thinking about my last attempt number for the whole of friday evening, since there were a lot of factors such as other people's attempts, points, whether to do odd cubes (which will be better for first) or even (which had a better chance of helping confirming podium), and after a lot of consideration I was confused between 42 and 40 cubes but I decided 40 partly as I had done 36/40 and 38/40 in comp in june so I knew I had a better chance of doing well with them. Very happy it worked out :)

Congrats Sihvam! Well done!
thanks! :D

combined 78/86 which is awesome. I'd say I scarmbled around 60 of those cubes (full first attempt and almost half of third one). The finish of the third attempt was exciting to watch also. Huge congrats!
