I just noticed that I currently have 214 solves in a row under 20 seconds; 2,619 in a row under 25; and 8,226+ (my entire spreadsheet, and probably a few hundred before I started the spreadsheet) sub-30. These numbers (all personal records) really surprised me, and I was wondering if anyone has more. I know that Macky had 101 consecutive competition sub-20 solves a while back; and that the worst time in Yu Jeong-Min's 13.73 average of 100 was 16.86 (!), but what about consecutive sub-20s out of competition? Also, do you think any of these would make a good unofficial record category?

P.S. The most sub-15s I've had in a row, as far as I can recall, is ten. Needless to say, this resulted in one of my best averages ever. ;) The most sub-10s I've had in a row is one... three times... all lucky :P
P.P.S. I'm really not trying to brag... I was just wondering how consistently sub-[insert time here] everyone else is.
EDIT: I've only had two (lucky) sub-10s. I've also had one that would have been 9.xx without that penalty...
EDIT again: I had 15 sub-15s in a row on Sep. 21, and #2-13 of those made up my 12.87 avg ;)

Not sure if this really goes with what your saying, but I once did an average with three consecutive solves of 23.76

:shock:

I always have at least a few 20+ solves in my averages of 100. I think you average around 19-20 (because your best avg of 10 is 17.94), so you are very consistent.

I am really inconsistant, when I get averages, I usually range from 21 seconds up to 35. I don't know all of OLL yet...

Me too, usually.

I think that 17.94 is outdated.

i have a full time job now + this job destroys my hands, and i am still getting faster. almost sub 17 :P
i would say 1/5 averages i will maybe get a 21 or something.I will try avg of 100 soon, it will probably be around 18 though.

Are you sure about that 300+ consecutive solves sub-20? And yes, that 17.94 has to be outdated if your average average is around that. So what's your best avg of 10? :P I think I have to start taking averages again because you are getting faster and I want to be the #1 petrus solver... hehe

Yes the 300 consecutive solves i did over the span of a week or so, without paying attention after about 50 solves i noticed and wanted to see how many i can do under 20 secs and that's how it started.And johannes, my best average was 17.30 or so today, which ain't too bad for me considering im still learning a few PLL's from all 4 angles.Gets annoying doing Y turns on PLL :P

Wow, you are maybe the most consistent cuber I've heard of. I don't think it's necessary to learn all algs from all angles, but sure that would be nice...

Pembo: OLL doesn't really matter. There are many fast cubers who don't know all of it (Harris Chan for example). 2-look is just around 1-1.5 seconds faster than 3-look IMHO... Many people who average around 30 sec say that they must learn OLL to get faster, and that's ridiculous.

Actually 2 look will be 3-5 seconds faster for me :/

Hmm... Does that mean it takes you 5-7 seconds to solve OLL in 2 looks? And if you could do it always with one alg it would be 2 seconds? 3-look can be very fast, but it takes a lot practice.

But I don't know much about OLL anyway so I might be wrong...

A true 1 look OLL is 1 alg which can be done in around two seconds, I sometimes have to do 3 algs....

All my solves as of July are under 30. Nothing else has a significantly large number.

Pembo, do you use partial edge control?

No, I was thinking about it, for OH while I am learning OLL but it's just a little fiddly and seems to be too much effort for what I will get out of it.

The only time I will use a form of it is when I get a OLL with no correct edges during a OH solve.

My best run was probably 6 or 7 sub-30 times... and probably about 20 sub-35 and 100 sub-40 (if I get over 40 it was because of a horrible mistake), but I don't really keep track that much. I'm slow, but I don't care about 3x3x3 as much as other stuff (5x5x5, Magic, Clock). At the moment I'm learning full OLL, which saves me a lot of time over 2-look OLL because of very very slow recognition.

I'm pretty much the same.

I've been getting sub-30 a lot lately though. Exciting!!

You and I are fairly similar then. :P

I had a 26 second solve the other day, but that was my first over 24.97 seconds probably out of 500 or so. I am not sub-20 average.

But you said on your forum (at least 3 times) that you average sub-20...?
