**Scramble **(speedsolving.com weekly competition 2013-15): D2 F2 U’ L2 D B2 U’ F2 L2 F2 U’ L’ D’ L2 B’ D’ F D U’ R U

**Solution:** B U F2 D’ F L2 D L2 D L’ R F R’ D’ F’ R2 D (17 HTM)

**Explanation:***
My first moves: quick start:* B U F’ L F’

*To fix pseudoblock at the right add premoves*(R2 D)

*Continue obvious start: 2 blocks:*B F’ U

*(3+2)*

*I investigated this start for several minutes, parked it for later, and investigated an alternative start with these same promising pre-moves*(R2 D):

*2x2x2:*B U

*(2+2)*

*save pair before creating next block:*F2

*(3+2)*

*block and extra pair:*D’ F L2 D

*(7+2)*

*another block and extra pair:*L2 D L’

*(10+2)*

*finish F2L and LL-skip:*R F R’ D’ F’

*(15+2)*

*undo pre-moves*(R2 D)

*(17)*

*Very lucky solve, 20min!*

*PB and optimal solution!*
