This scramble looked nice and I found a different domino that seemed really promising, but it didn't end up working and my time management wasn't very good

I was expecting to go with a backup 29 until I found this with a minute or two left

I found a 25 by doing the 5e with an 8 mover that cancelled 3, but then I tried this crazy stuff and it turned out better

First DR solve as well. I was expecting a lot worse but a 26 is very nice.

Can someone post a video (preferably that you have made) on domino and on how to do insertions? If so thanks! Woowy I think you would be good at explaining it

Scramble #1: R' U' F R' B2 R' B2 R' D2 B2 R2 D2 B2 R2 D R U L D U2 R2 B' F' R' D R' U' F

U D @ F' // EO (3/3)
R2 U D R' D2 R // pxxcross (6/9)
D' L2 D L' D2 // edges; ab5c (5/14)

@ = U' F' D F U F' # D' F // 4 cancel
# = F' D' B' D F D' B D // 3 cancel (9/23)

Final solution (23): D F' D F U F2 D' B' D F D' B R2 U D R' D2 R D' L2 D L' D2

Skeleton is also a 12-move DR, although I wasn't specifically looking for that. For that matter, it also seems that nobody else found this DR either!
U D F' // EO (3/3)
R2 U D R' D2 R D' L2 D // DR (9/12)
L' D2 // ab5c (2/14)

I wasn't expecting nice cancellations (the pieces were all in bad positions at the end of the skeleton, which usually also means they're in bad positions elsewhere in the skeleton), but it happened to work out.

My solutions for scrambles 2 and 3 were just bad and not really noteworthy. (I guess for #3 I initially thought the ZBLL alg would cancel 4+ moves but then I noticed that I wrote it at the wrong AUF and the correct one cancelled only 2 moves. Disappointing, but I'll still take 2 moves cancelling over none.)

(Also it looks like I'm going to fall out of top 100 officially for good, RIP. It was good while it lasted.)

Very happy with this. After over a year I finally beat my 39.

I don’t know if this scramble was lucky or I just found a really good EO but that was an awesome scramble! I found this in 15 minutes. It was ridiculous.

Comments: Found this promising start with about 20 mins left of the attempt, found 17 to 3tc right away but took me a while to notice this, the other skeleton I had was 16 to 5c. Lucky insertion as well, I noticed a lot of double moves when checking the first spot (noticing the almost 6 mover) so a good cancel on one of those 8 movers was bound to happen.

Comments: At first glance, this scramble didn't look that good, relative to the first two, however, I found this halfway through the attempt, then I couldn't find anything following.

I was doing a casual solve at home with this scramble: R’ U’ F R2 D2 F2 U2 L' B2 R U2 L2 U2 F2 U2 F U' R2 B2 D2 F' D R' R’ U’ F
Then I found this really nice F2L-1
R L2 F2 U B R (L’ D’ F’ D’) D
Can anyone find a good continuation from this? I did U L U’ L F’ L2 F to L4C and got 28(IF says 23 is optimal, now I regret not searching more thoroughly), but I wanna see what people that are way better than me can do
