**Scramble:** B2 L2 B2 L’ B2 L F2 D2 R2 D L2 D’ B2 R2 B2 F’ L2 R2

**Solution:** R2 L2 F’ U’ R2 U L’ D2 L D2 L’ D L D’ F2 U’ L2 D L2 D’ B2 R2 D’ R2 B2 L2 B2 (27 HTM)

**Explanation:***
Premove:* B2

R2 L2 F’

*//EO (3/3)*

U’ R2 U

*//Blocks (3/6)*

L’ D2 L D2 L’ D L

*//Domino Reduction (7/13)*

D’ F2 L2

*//More Blocks (3/16)*

L2 U’ L2 D L2 D’ * L2 U

*//Pairs Commutator, 1 moves cancel (6/22)*

B2

*//Undo Premove (1/23)*

*At this point I began looking for places to insert those nasty edges cycles like* R2 B2 L2 U L2 B2 R2 D*; the best I could find was a 2-moves cancellation for a 29 total. With some hint from IF (I’ve looked at where to insert the cycle):*

* = B2 R2 D’ R2 B2 L2 U’ L2* //Edges 3-cycle, 4 moves cancel (4/27)*

**Comment:
**I randomly decided to try EO first and since it led to a good blockbuilding continuation (first six moves) I explored it a bit. I have then decided to for a further reduction (EO can be seen as reduction to <U, D, R, L, F2, B2>, and Domino Reduction leaves you in <U, D, R2, L2, F2, B2>).
