**Scramble:** R2 F D2 L F’ U2 F2 U’ L’ B’ L F2 U2 L2 F2 R2 U B2 U2 R2 D2

**Solution:** R2 U2 B2 U’ R’ F’ L’ B D B’ D R F2 R’ D L’ F’ R F R’ B2 L F L’ B2 L F’ D’ (28 HTM)

**Explanation / Comment:**

*After a few minutes I found the following block:*

*2x2x2:* R2 U2 B2 U’ R’

*2x2x3:* F’ L’ B D B’

*I spent the next 20 minutes NISSing this and other beginnings I had found, then went back looking to the block again and what what I had at first not seen:*

*3 corners+1 twisted:* D R F2 R’ D F’ R F R’ D’

*with a setup before sledgehammer it gives a pure 3-cycle:* D R F2 R’ D **L’** F’ R F R’ **L** D’

*The corners were placed rather bad going through my partial solution. At least I was able to cancel 2 moves at 2 spots:*

*3-cycle:* R2 U2 B2 U’ R’ F’ L’ B D B’ . D R F2 R’ D L’ F’ R F R’ : L D’

. = F2 D B D’ F2 D B’ D’

: = B2 L F L’ B2 L F’ L’

*I randomly chose the second one.*

*After all a very standard solution. I’m so happy that this was enough to win.*
