Nats 2017, Sub-6 Average, and Worlds – TCCP#13

I just started learning Square-1 a week ago and I am improving quickly.  This is a great website for learning Sq-1 algorithms.

There were a ton of records broken in the past 2 weeks.   Feliks Zemdegs got the 3×3 WR Average – 5.97, 5×5 WR Single and Average – 41.24 / 47.88, and the 7×7 WR mean last week.  Sebastian Weyer got the 4×4 WR Average – 23.03.  Then Kevin Hays got the 6×6 WR mean – 1:34.

Here is the post on the SS forums about who is going to get the first Sub-1:30 6×6 mean.

The CubingUSA Nationals 2017 are this weekend.

The World Rubik’s Cube Championship will be held from July 13-16.
