The scramble (Dutch Open 2009) was proposed by Guus Razoux Schultz as a hard scramble.

**Scramble:** R2 D B2 U B2 D B’ D’ R’ U’ F’ D2 B2 R D L’ B’ F

**Solution:** F2 R2 U B U’ F’ L’ F’ U R’ B’ D’ B D R D2 R F D F’ D’ B2 R U R’ (25 HTM)

**Explanation:**

*Pseudo 2x2x2 + pair:* F2 R2 F2 U* (4)*

*On inverse with premoves* U’ F2 R2 F2*, complete 2x2x3:* R U’ R’ B2 R’* (5)*

*I’ve found this start quite early (5 minutes maybe, but I have also explored a bit another start). Back to normal scramble with premoves* R B2 R U R’*, I changed my first moves to:*

F2 R2 U B U’ F’ L’ F’ U *//F2L in 9+5=14 wow!*

*Here at first I went for CLL (9 moves) + inserted edges 3 cycle, which was actually just a regular ELL inserted right after the CLL. Then I’ve found this finish:*

R’ B’ D’ B D R

D2 R F D F’ D’ R’ *//2 look LL (13)*

R B2 R U R’ *//Undo premoves, 2 moves cancel (3)*

**Comment:
**I think this is one of my best solves ever (not only for movecount), I am really proud of it.
