Should have been a bit faster, easy scramble. London Cube Meet 2016-12-11.

9.07 Square-1 ER average – World Championship 2017 (3 parities)

Not a great average, too many mistakes. I don't think I can get WR with that many mistakes. At least Brandon only has 1 average faster than me now, instead of 7. :P

Square-1 blindfolded solve - 20 minutes 47 seconds - Aurora Summer 2009

Square-1 blindfolded solve at Aurora Summer 2009, 20 minutes 47 seconds ( ).

The first-ever successful Square-1 blindfolded solve in public (in an unofficial event) at a WCA (World Cube Association) competition, Aurora Summer 2009, held in Aurora, Colorado on July 18, 2009. Total (memorization + execution) time was 20 minutes 47 seconds (rounded to the nearest second according to the WCA regulation). The memorization took about 15 minutes and the execution was about 6 minutes. Special thanks to Keanu László Vestil for recording this video.

I am grateful to Shelley Chang for motivating me to try blindfolded solving and for being the judge of my very first public Square-1 blindfolded attempt at San Francisco Open 2009, which, unfortunately, was not successful after about one and half hour of struggling. The experience there was a precious and the most critical lesson for this success.

My sincere thanks also go to the competition organizers, WCA delegates, judges, scramblers, competitors and spectators who allowed and encouraged me to perform Square-1 solves with or without a blindfold at competitions, and those who inspired me by discussing the blindfolded solving and by showing me amazing performances in speedcubing. They include, but not limited to, Tyson Mao, Bob Burton, Bryan Logan, Lucas Garron, Patrick Kelly, Daniel Hayes, Dan Knights, Sapan Upadhyay, Anthony Searle, Chris Krueger, Leyan Lo, Sam Boyles, Adam Zamora, Tim Reynolds, Ethan Rosen, Dan Cohen, Michael Young, Mark Polinkovsky, Jim Mertens, Park Byung-Hwa, Choi Jae Jung, Jaclyn Sawler, Dan Dzoan, Michael Gottlieb, Ambie Valdés, Joseph Hong, Waris Ali, Mike Hughey, Jason Baum, Ryan Patricio, Keanu László Vestil, Nick Young, Andrew Nelson, Stephanie Chow, David Woner, Dene Beardsley, Ron van Bruchem, Lars Vandenbergh, Stefan Pochmann, Grzegorz Prusak, Masayuki Akimoto, Ryosuke Mondo, Shinpei Araki, Shotaro Makisumi, Yu Nakajima, Kazuhito Iimura and Yumu Tabuchi.

With my wholehearted gratitude to my wife Saori, my daughter Aina, and my son Daiki for their generous support and kindness.

Official 19.20 Square-1 Average With 13.50 Single!!!!!!! :o


19.77 [parity], (13.50), 17.24 [parity], (25.23), 20.59 = 19.20 Average! Sweetness.

I'm realllly happy with the single. If I didn't mess up the last two solves I could've had a way better average, but oh well. I just wanted sub-20 anyways! ;)

Done at Michigan 2014. It kind of sucks that they had another round b/c I got 2nd place in this round, but fourth in the final :(
