Well, since you asked so nicely... Problem is, zoom is bad on your cross in both vids, and cross is hardest to reconstruct (I couldn't manage to reconstruct it on my OPR).

That's true...I remember doing some kind of R D2 R' at the end of the cross though. I don't know if the scramble was ever saved (probably not?)

Btw, I would've done something like...:

Scramble (cross on D):
L2 F2 D2 F' R2 U2 F D' L B' R2 D2 U F D R' B L F'

Solve:
x U' R' U2 r' u L' D2' (7)
U R U R' (4)
U2 L' U L (4)
U R' U R y U R' U R (8)
U' R U R' U R U R' (8)
R' U' R U' R' U2 R (7)
R' U2 R U R' U2 L U' R U L' U (12)

Ah, I see. I'm trying to ask Dave if he had saved the scrambles (he kind of mixed the scrambles up between rounds though), so I might be able to get the scramble and work towards it...

Alright, do you want me to shakily film a physics lecturer at low resolution and expect you to find out what formula was written because you could watch his hand and see part of the formula (at low resolution) at the end of the clip?

Harris: The scramble would be a lot more help than the tiny cube in that clip. Why are cameramen so concerned with the scene if they're filming a solve excpected to be fast? :confused: ("Yes, we know Harris's head stays on during OLL!")

y' D' R2 D' L (4)
R U R' U y' L' U' L (7)
R' U2 R (3)
y L' U L U2 y' R U R' (7)
U' y' L' U' L U' y' R U' R' U R U' R' (12)
R U2 R' U' R U R' U' R U' R' (11)
R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F' U' (15)

59 moves, although 6 moves could potentially be cancelled out, making that 53.
Maybe similar length, but definitely easier triggers, and the really easy start helps with look ahead (most of the move count is in the last pair+OLL+PLL, all of which are the fastest part of the solve anyway).

EDIT: doing that solve actually just gave me what would have been my best time had I not done the solve several times and already known what to do . It actually felt good, knowing I have the potential to get sub-13 .
