25 HTM Solve by Sebastiano Tronto

Scramble: D B2 R2 U’ F2 D2 B2 U R2 U2 F U2 L F D B2 L U’ B F’ U2
Solution: D2 R2 D2 F’ L’ U2 R D’ L’ R’ D2 B’ F’ R’ B R F B2 R D F D’ F’ R’ D (25 HTM)

Explanation:
D2 R2 D2 F’ L’ U2 //2x2x2 (6/6)
R D’ L’ R’ //2x2x3 (4/10)
D2 B2 //F2L-1 (2/12)
* D’ B D B’ //F2L (4/16)
R D F D’ F’ R’ D //OLL (7/23)
* = B F’ R’ B R B’ F D’ B’ D //3 edges, 8 moves cancel (2/25)

Comment:
Quite lucky solution, with tons of moves cancelled. After finding that insertion, it can also be seen as a different way to finish the F2L; after F2L-1:
B F’ R’ B R F B2 //F2L, 1 move cancels (6/18)
And then the same OLL leads to a PLL skip.
