Roux, 38. This one was weird.

I will say one thing about my solves: I intentionally show the most efficient solution that works in a linear, speedsolve-esque fashion. They aren't necessarily representative of my speedsolve solutions or even those of top Roux solvers. I want to show the potential of the method, even in basic form. If you would like to see speedsolve reconstructions paired with my posts, let me know and I'll be sure to include them.

Roux, 34. The LSE has a very nice EOLR solution that's worth looking at. Also nice multi-slotting in SB

CFOP, 54 moves. Would've been better if I got a different PLL. Pretty standard minus easy xcross

No funky anti-PLLs this time - just a 26-move F2L into an unremarkable LL case.

Filipe Teixeria, D2 L2 R2 F2 R2 U2 B' D2 B' F2 R' B2 D B' D2 B' F2 R F'

L R U’ R’ U L’ // Edge + CO
R U F R U R' U' F' R2 F R F' R U' R' U2 // TTLL
39 HTM - Saw an easy 2x2x2 and then EO solved itself. Got really lucky, probably lowest movecount speedsolve ever, and very close to my PB single. I actually mostly use CFOP or Hex-F. Knowing random cases from everything can be useful (CLS, WV, TTLL, BLE, COLL, etc).

Was my solve an interesting method? It was just Hexagonal Francisco, if you've never heard of it you should look it up, its very good.

U2 R' U2 R U' R' U R // First Pair

U' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U' R U R' F' U2 // PLL
52 HTM - Pretty solid solution

12.790 - Pretty standard Tripod. I went for the most obvious xcross but there may be a better one. I also inserted a U' because the F2L cases are all terrible otherwise.

46 STM - Tried out Six-Step Kociemba, not too bad. Over 80% RU moves, interesting.

Note: This is not a 'real' solve like my other three in this thread. I went over the scramble more than once.
