If someone does not link their WCA id and does not chose to show it, I would not link it. Obviously the photo contains his full name which would make it easy to find his ID but that could be a mistake.

I know I have three days but my goal is to try and get a Sub-4 7x7 mean on Saturday. I have one chance, and if I practice a lot I could pull it off. A few hours ago I got a 4:13 PB Single. (I'll keep updating this)

I feel myself improving, and my main weakness are L4C, but I am definitely getting better at it.

Didn't get the mean, but it is fine because I knew there was like a 25% chance I would get it. 5x5 went well, and I got a 1.06 2x2 single (9 mover that was 1 move cancelled into Lefty T case, could've been sub-1 but I safetied.) Clock was the real highlight, I got a 5.72, but more notably in 2 rounds I counted a 4! This doesn't happen often for me. I also got a 4.24 single, and the memo was OO OJ HD. I kinda safetied but if I went all out it could've been Sub-4.

On Saturday is FMC 2024 (Which has more competitors than NAC). My goal is to qualify for NAC, in which I will likely need better than a 26.67 mean with a 23 single. I got that a few days ago.
