This is called one-looking. Many advanced 2x2 solves already do this. Chris Olsen has a tutorial on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfPqeBWqQT8hi. imagine we can always predict a 14 move solution (made of two steps first step is 5move and second is 9move) for 2x2 cube.
what will be our average in this way?
