This thread is for famous solves. Basically the way this works is
1. Post a famous scramble.
2. Solve it the way you normally would. DO NOT solve it the way the person did.
Example:
Scramble (3.47 Yusheng Du scramble) F U2 L2 B2 F' U L2 U R2 D2 L' B L2 B' R2 U2
Solve:
F L D L' U' L y2 F U' R U// Inefficient cross for easy F2L 1
x2 R U' R'//F2L 1
y U R' U2 R U' R' U R//F2L 2
R' F R F' R U' R'//F2L 3
y2 U' R U2 R' U' R U R'//F2L 4
U' R' U' R' F R F' R' F R F' U R//OLL
R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R'//PLL

Scramble (3.47 Yusheng Du scramble) F U2 L2 B2 F' U L2 U R2 D2 L' B L2 B' R2 U2
Solve:

Petrus:
z y' // Inspection
F' L F' L' // EO2x2 [4/4]
R U' R U' L U' L' // CP 2x2x3 extension [7/11]
R2 U' R' U R U R' U' R' U R U R'// F2L [13/24]
U2 R U R' U R U2' R' // 2GLL [8/32]
30 32 STM
Edit: There were several typos in this. It's actually 32 STM
Nautilus:
y x'// Inspection
R' F' B2 // FB [3/3]
r2 U' R U r U2 r U2 R' U' r U r' // xNSB [13/16]
U' R U2 R' U' R U' R' // NCLL [8/24]
M' U' M U' M' U' M U // L5E [8/32]
32 STM

Mehta (or Utah):
y x // Inspection
R' f' F2 // FB [3/3]
u R' E R U2 R2 // Belt [6/9]
E F' U' F // EOLE [4/13]
y2 R' U2 R' U' R' U R2 D' R U' R' D R' U' R // ZBLL [15/28]
E // ABL [1/29]

I've been obsessed with the WR scramble for months and wanted to share some solutions I came up with. I have some more that I'll share in another post.

Edit: I don't know why I said xNSB. It's just NSB with cancellations.
Nautilus: [fixed]
