**One Hour Solution:** R2 D2 B2 F2 L R B’ R’ F R B R’ B’ U’ F2 L F2 B2 D’ R D R’ D’ R’ D’ R’ D R D (29 HTM)

**No Time Limit Solution:** R2 D2 B2 F2 L R B’ R’ F R B R’ B’ L2 B2 R2 D B2 L’ F2 B2 D’ (22 HTM)

**Explanation:**

R2 D2 B2 F2 L * F B’ *//EO + blocks (7/7)*

U’ F2 L F2 B2 *//More blocks (5/12)*

D’ R D R’ D’ R’ D’ R’ D R D *//All but 3 corners (11/23)*

* = R B’ R’ F R B R’ F’ *//3 corners, 2 moves cancel out (6/29)*

**Comment:**

I’d say this is an “almost” EO-first solve, since in the first step I build many nice blocks while orienting edges with 2 more moves than the 5 required (R2 U2 R F B, or example). The solve itself isn’t bad, but it can be easily improved by a lot of moves: just look at the last step. What does it do? If you don’t get it, try performing those 11 moves on a solved cube.

The “no time limit” I’ve submitted (found a couple of minutes after the time limit) is the following:

R2 D2 B2 F2 L * F B’ +

U’ F2 L F2 B2 *//Same as before (12/12)*

D’ *//All but 3 edges and 3 corners (1/13)*

* = R B’ R’ F R B R’ F’ *//3 corners, 2 moves cancel (6/19)*

+ = L2 B2 R2 D B2 L2 F2 U *//3 edges, 5 moves cancel (3/22)*
