Hi everyone !

I was getting bored with solving question paper after question paper in my preparation for JEE . So just to freshen up a bit , I started playing with my Funskool 3X3 Rubik's Cube .

\[\]It was a while since I last touched it so I hadn't expected my time to be any good , but after around 5 minutes of whiling my time , I achieved something !

\[\]I had bettered my previous best of 20 seconds and solved it in 9.4 seconds !!

You can't imagine how happy I am ! I really am in the 7th Heaven !


I am pretty sure that there might be many people out here on Brilliant who are also interested in Speed Cubing , am I right ?

I request all Speed Cubers who are reading this , do comment on your solves here . I just want to compare myself with all the talented Speed Cubers out there ! Not just Speed Cubers but also those who are interested in it may also comment here .

\[\]

Do reshare this note so that many people comment here .

@Aditya Kumar So you too use Fridrich ?

I have found out that ZZ method is the best but I just can't change my methods right now , it'll take a lot of time to get back on track using the new method . So I guess I'll have to stick with Fridrich and just improve my speed . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 3 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M No I use the layer method. I learnt it first. It'll take time to learn Fridrich method or zz method......may be I'll be able to give time to them after jee(2016).......how much time did you take to learn the Fridrich method???? Aditya Kumar · 2 years, 3 months ago

Whoa @Azhaghu Roopesh M 9.4 seconds!? I usually take 1 minute but just like you I haven't been playing with it recently so my average time has gone up to 80sec. I use the Fridich method but I haven't learnt all the algorithms yet. Can you suggest what I should do to improve? Chirag Trasikar · 2 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Chirag Trasikar Well , all I did learn some basic algorithms and make some of mine (just 2) and I speed cube almost every hour (well started it yesterday after a really long time) so my speed is maintained !

I can solve the 3 by 3 in around 28 seconds using the beginners method but by using CFOP method I can take around 40 seconds .

I've touched the Rubik's Cube just once and tried to solve it. I don't know what it was, my rough handling, aggression of not being able to solve or the smash which I continuously gave it... but it BROKE apart. :D Rishabh Tripathi · 2 years, 3 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M No not scary .. I was in a bad mood... and tried to refresh myself by reading something but got a headache then I tried some maths but was unable to understand. Then I picked up the cube which I bought just a week before. It was the frustration which caused that. But since then I never bought another cube. Rishabh Tripathi · 2 years, 3 months ago

If its convincing, I'll give it another shot. :D Rishabh Tripathi · 2 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Rishabh Tripathi I use the Fridrich method developed by Lady Jessica Fridrich .

I just tried google up the pdf that I use but it seems the free version was pulled back and hence I can't provide you the link .

First of all see this . This is the most basic method of all . once you learn this by heart , you can start using Fridrich method .

For F method there are many sources other than the pdf that was removed . You can try this .

Just try them out and if you don't feel comfortable with this method , just @mention me here and I'll try to help you out :) Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 3 months ago

@Kunal Joshi That's where algorithms come in . To try to keep on solving without your efforts getting wasted .

Hmm , good to know about Akshay . What's his best solve till now ? Don't tell me it's less than 9.46 seconds! I want to be happy for some more time ! Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Azhaghu Roopesh M My best is 45 seconds,I really stop after solving the first two layers simultaneously thinking about which algorithm to use.I am bad at remembering OLL,PLL,F2L. Btw,I can solve 4x4 in 2 min 10 sec,5x5 in about 4 min.I am nothing compared to people like Feliks and the like. Your time is really good you can easily become the best in India. Akshay Bodhare · 2 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Akshay Bodhare What I do is while cubing , I don't think . I leave everything to my hands , no mind work is involved . So it doesn't lead to any confusion .

Also cubing is the only prominent art wherein muscle memory is greatly tested . So you really can't forget cubing !

Nah! I can never become the best . After managing that 9 seconds solve , I cubed for another 5 minutes , and my average was 11-12 seconds . Seems like that 9.46 seconds was just by luck . Besides there are some of my friends who solve in less than 8 seconds consistently .

I don't know 4X4 and 5X5 . Maybe I'll learn it after JEE . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 3 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M Well,try to get an OLL skip to defeat your friends time. Akshay Bodhare · 2 years, 3 months ago

@Azhaghu Roopesh M I dont remember. I will ask him to comment his best time. But he is not only good in 3x3 , but also in solving 4x4 and 5x5 cubes. Kunal Joshi · 2 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

I used to do this way back. I still have my cube.. It was a craze in class 9 and 10.... @Vishnu H Nair could do it the fastest in our group of peers(then). Not sure I remember, but his fastest solve was around 20 seconds or so. My time then(and now) is about 40-45 seconds. I use intuitive F2L and 2 Look OLL and PLL. The fun part is that you can't forget how to solve it.... muscle memory for the win! @Azhaghu Roopesh M Raghav Vaidyanathan · 2 years, 3 months ago

Log in to reply

@Raghav Vaidyanathan Exactly ! My friends ask me to teach them some of my favorite algorithms , but my mind goes blank each time they do so .

I can't explain them that it's been etched into my muscle memory and that I cannot just tell them the notations .

Well , you'll laugh at me , but I don't use Intuitive F2L . I just use the basic Fridrich Algorithms , and two of my own ones ! And I rely on moving my fingers fast , rather than memorising the Algs .

When I think abt it now , I really feel that I can get a decent sub- 10 solve time if I memorise some more Algs , but I just am not able to do it .

Let's have a match if we meet after JEE . Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 3 months ago

@Abdur Rehman Zahid Try out Fridrich method . It's the easiest and the one that's closely related to the one that you use and you'll be solving the cube in under a minute ! Just try it out :) Azhaghu Roopesh M · 2 years, 3 months ago
