Shuto Ueno won with 27 moves mean. Well done!

I hope other competitors also post their solutions here.

1st scramble: R' U' F U B2 D' B2 U B2 L2 R2 D B D2 L R2 U2 B U' R B2 F' R' U' F

1st solution: B L2 B' R' B L2 B' R B R2 B R' B' U2 B2 D2 B2 L2 B' U2 B U' L2 F B2 (25 moves)

30 min backup solution.

Pre-scramble: F B2

Orient edges: B R2 B R'

2x2x3 block: B' U2 B2 D2 B2

All but 3 corners: L2 B' U2 B U' L2

Insert at the beginning: B L2 B' R' B L2 B' R

I missed the optimal insertion, which should have resulted in 24 moves.

Pre-scramble: F B2

Orient edges: B R2 B R'

2nd scramble: R' U' F U L2 D' U2 F2 L2 U L' F2 D' F2 L2 U B F2 R D' L U2 R' U' F

2nd solution: U2 F' L2 F U2 R2 F D2 F' R2 U' B' U B U2 B2 L2 B2 D' B D L' D' F' U' F2 R' (27 moves)

10 min backup solution.

(Inverse)

Orient edges: R

2x2x2 block: F2 U F D

Orient edges: L

2x2x3 block: D' B' D B2 L2

Finish F2L: B2 U2 B' U' B U

LL: R2 F D2 F' R2 U2 F' L2 F U2

In the remaining time, I also found the following solution (27 moves).

(Inverse)

Orient edges: R

2x2x2 block: F2 U F D

Orient edges: L

2x2x3 block: B2 U' B' * U L2

All but 3 corners: U' B U B U2 B U' B' U B2

Insert at *: B R B' L' B R' B' L

(Inverse)

2x2x3 block: D' B' D B2 L2

Finish F2L: B2 U2 B' U' B U

LL: R2 F D2 F' R2 U2 F' L2 F U2

In the remaining time, I also found the following solution (27 moves).

(Inverse)

Orient edges: R

2x2x2 block: F2 U F D

Orient edges: L

2x2x3 block: B2 U' B' * U L2

All but 3 corners: U' B U B U2 B U' B' U B2

Insert at *: B R B' L' B R' B' L

3rd scramble: R' U' F U2 B2 L2 D2 U L2 U' B2 D F' L B L F' R D' B2 L' U' B2 R' U' F

3rd solution: F2 D' B2 R D B2 D' L' D L' U L' D' L U' L2 D2 F L F' L F L F' L D2 B' L F U R2 (31 moves)

Here is 20 min backup solution (32 moves).

Pre-scramble: F2

Orient edges: R2 U F' L B'

2x2x3 block minus 1 edge: L R' U L' U' D F2

F2L minus 1 slot minus 1 edge: U' L

More square: D' U2 * R' U' R

All but 3 corners: U R' U R U' D

Correction: F2

Insert at *: U2 B' D' B U2 B' D B

In the remaining time, I found the following solution.

(Inverse)

Pre-scramble: B2 D' R' B2 D F2

F2L minus 1 slot: R2 U' F' L' B D

Finish F2L: D L' F L' F' L' F L' F' D'

Pre-scramble: F2

Orient edges: R2 U F' L B'

2x2x3 block minus 1 edge: L R' U L' U' D F2

F2L minus 1 slot minus 1 edge: U' L

More square: D' U2 * R' U' R

All but 3 corners: U R' U R U' D

Correction: F2

Insert at *: U2 B' D' B U2 B' D B

In the remaining time, I found the following solution.

(Inverse)

Pre-scramble: B2 D' R' B2 D F2

F2L minus 1 slot: R2 U' F' L' B D

Finish F2L: D L' F L' F' L' F L' F' D'
