Hi forum,

I am attempting to reconstruct J Perm's third solve beginning at 1:12 in this YouTube video of his:

Scramble: D2 R2 D' F2 L2 B2 U2 F2 U' B D R2 F2 R D2 L' U B' L U

x // inspection
D L' U l F' // cross + one preserved F2L pair
U R' U' R2 U' R' // inserted two pairs back to back
U U'...

This is all I have so far. His hand blocks the view and I can't continue transcribing the reconstruct. Does anyone have any clue what he may be doing to solve the last two F2L cases?

Thank you,
Steve

U U' L U L' L' U' L2 U L' // F2L 3
L' U L U L' U' L U2' L' U L // F2L 4

Generally it helps to do frame-by-frame analysis by pausing the video and pressing . or , to go forward or back one frame, respectively.
Youtube can do frame by frame? I never knew that. Does it have to be with a physical keyboard? Because I am trying to do that with my phone but the virtuap keyboard isn't there.

Thank you all for helping me reconstruct this.

So at a solve time of 6.65 seconds with 52 move count total his turns per second was 7.82... omg.

My 5.72 PB single was 8+ TPS, top level speedcubers often have 10+ TPS during solves
I timed an Na Perm just now to see how fast my turn speed is during that PLL algorithm, I did it in 1.963 seconds with 21 moves.

21 ÷ 1.963 = 10.7 TPS? (rounded to nearest tenth)

But I bet top level cubers have even higher TPS for their last layer algs.

Nice. Yeah, top level cubers can reach upwards 15-20 TPS during last layer.

Only one rotation for the whole solve!! That's amazing. Btw you could have eliminated the rotation by using F' U F instead of y L' U L. Nice solve nevertheless.

I deleted the session so I don't have the scramble.
Last layer was R U2 R' U' R U' R' into a pll skip.

FlatMars from discord got a 5.73 with Mehta:

57 ETM/5.73s = 9.94 TPS!!

proof that Mehta can have insane TPS.

This is the fastest single solve with Mehta. Previous one was 5.88 by Zeke Mackay

One of the weirdest 3x3 solutions I've ever done!

Scramble: U L2 U' L2 F2 D' L2 D2 R2 B2 F2 R' D' L2 F' U' F U R' D'

I noticed two solved green cross edges and even a solved pair. I also noticed that the other two green edges were in the correct place, but flipped. The green-red-yellow pair on the top layer was already paired up, but had a flipped yellow-red edge as well.

Inspection: x' y2 (blue top, yellow front)
X-Cross: M' U M' U M' U M' U (also paired up the yellow-red pair)
F2L 2: U2 L' U L
F2L 3: y U R U R' U2 R U R'
F2L 4: y' U R U' R' U y L' U' L
OLL: y' R U R' U' R' F R2 U R' U' F'
PLL: R U R' U R U R' F' R U R' U' R' F R2 U' R' U2 R U' R' U2
