Place | Result | Name | Quote | Date |
---|---|---|---|---|

1 | 906 moves | Adam Wojtyla | Well. I thought 900 moves is a barrier which cannot be defeated. Now, I think 960 moves is all what I can do! Cube was solved 37 times, i did 4-move algorithm 226 times and my average is 15,1 mps. | 20060515 |

2 | 768 moves | Péter Róka | n/a | 20080224 |

3 | 741 moves | Johannes Laire | R U R' U' | 20060510 |

4 | 736 moves | Brent Morgan | I did this right after lubing my cube. I did a 4 move algorithm 184 times. (4)(184) = 736. This can be beaten. Visit my site! | 20060224 |

5 | 732 moves | Jay Woo | I did it on the way to pleasantville and I did 183 4 move algorithms and that was my best so far. I had finger cramp. | 20071106 |

6 | 724 moves | Mike Tryczak | Using RUR'U' 181 times. A sustained 12 twists per second, I don't think I can go much faster. Unfortunately I didn't get a video of this one, but my webcam is pretty low quality anyway. An old video of 676 moves. | 20050611 |

7 | 720 moves | Blazej Morgala | Using a magical algorithm of Adam Wojtyla ;P Few days of training. I think I can do more than 800 moves. In this, I've got ~12 tps. But in the beginning it's about 18 tps ;) | 20071213 |

8 | 672 moves | Marcos Kawakami | n/a | 20070529 |

9 | 664 moves | Norbert Hantos | Doing R' F R U' 166 times. It was pretty hard in the end. I will be faster! | 20060507 |

10 | 648 moves | Ryan Komrska | Yep.. I'll proboly never beat this. 27 cycles of R U Ri Ui. | 20070725 |

11 | 624 moves | Thomas Watiotienne | I did [RU] 26 times but my left thumb hurts so much!! I know I can be better! | 20080107 |

11 | 624 moves | Tyler Yarnelli | R U' R' U | 20080729 |

13 | 620 moves | Joël van Noort | RUR'U'RUR'U'RUR'U'RUR'U'RUR'U' etc. Could have been a little more if I didn't have a piece POP that took me 2 seconds to correct. | 20070119 |

14 | 614 moves | Anssi Vanhala | I've done 129 with feet. | 20061223 |

15 | 612 moves | Derrick Eide | WOW! I didn't think that i was capable of this. I used one of my other cubes and wow just look at the difference! (^^; | 20061208 |

15 | 612 moves | Ronald Herbert Dunphy | faster. | 20071204 |

17 | 600 moves | Stijn van Gils | I did L U' L' U exactly 150 times | 20060208 |

18 | 592 moves | Jaroslaw Krzyzanowski | my left thumb.. | 20060914 |

19 | 564 moves | Olivér Nagy | I used the U R' U' R algorithm and I repeated it 141 times. I've got it on video, witch you can find on my homepage. Rubikkocka.hu | 20060324 |

20 | 556 moves | Alan Tan | Using R U R' U' XP I'm surprised. I didn't think I was this fast =] Then again it's a reptitive alg. so it makes sense >. | 20080626 |

21 | 542 moves | Joseph Liao | I decided to give this a try, I am not very dexterious but I can do this move pretty long: B'R'UR (props to Macky for this algorithm :)) My site. | |

22 | 540 moves | Erik Akkersdijk | Doing BR'B'R 135 times. Improvement is required. | 20060526 |

23 | 528 moves | Bob Burton | I did RUR'U' 132 times in 59.xx seconds. My cube still needs a bit of lube, though. A minute is too long to do this. :P | 20050728 |

24 | 520 moves | Chris Hardwick | 8 move alg (R'UR'U'RU'RU) repeated 65 times. | |

25 | 504 moves | John Tamanas | I did it R' F R U' 21 times very good for me. | 20070923 |

26 | 480 moves | Jacob Rueth | Could have done a lot more if my wrists were being nice. Don't worry I sent them to the corner so hopefully they'll do better next time. | |

26 | 480 moves | Anthony Benis | I did R U R' U' and saw the cube solved 20 times (every 24 moves). | 20070814 |

28 | 476 moves | Stephen Potvin | been a while since i beat my old record. But i finally did it, and by a large margin | 20060210 |

29 | 468 moves | Nico Elayda | Did R U R' U' 117 times. I slowed down on the last few seconds my wrists were tired. | 20080127 |

30 | 456 moves | Sunil Pedapudi | owwww..I beat my old record that I set yesterday.19*24 moves I gotta keep getting better..or else! right? am I right? =D | |

30 | 456 moves | Hadley Sheffield | Ow. My hands are really sore now. | 20080415 |

30 | 456 moves | Jeffrey Zhang | 7.6 mps :) Weird thing was, my fingers didn't hurt. A loose cube helps. Mine is so loose the cube popped 3 pieces when I dropped it :( | 20080206 |

33 | 452 moves | Brad Simpson | L'ULF' 113 times. Could be better. 7.53 moves/second | 20080206 |

34 | 448 moves | Alex Lockwood | I did the 4 move algorithm R U R' U a total of 112 times. Definitely room for improvement. The last 10 seconds is tough, but I still like this better than actually solving the thing :p. | 20070531 |

35 | 448 seconds | Ben Zoller | RUR'U' | 20080626 |

36 | 444 moves | Richard Patterson | Using an '' adjusted'' corner orientation R U R' U R U2 R' U'. Stricter rules showing the hurt already :P | |

37 | 436 moves | Evan Gates | repeated R U R' U' 109 times took a couple times to do it without popping and ouch that hurts. | |

38 | 428 moves | Takuma Shirahase | My site | 20070617 |

39 | 425 moves | Ummon Karpe | Now that I got my cube4you cube decided to give ti a try. The standard LUL'U' (I am left handed). Hoping to get 480 per minute (two sets per second). | 20071117 |

40 | 424 moves | Josh Berg | this category is harder than i thought. R U R' U' 106 times. | 20070814 |

41 | 420 moves | Pierra Gagnon | 105 RUR'U' in one minute. My hands hurt | 20080716 |

42 | 413 moves | Robert Schlicht | I got this yesterday, and my hands have been cramping all day today. | 20080116 |

43 | 408 moves | Manan Thakkar | Used R U R' U'. Tried it three times, got 404 the first time, 408 the second time, and 407 the third time. I can still feel the pain. | 20070404 |

43 | 408 moves | Josh Smith | First try, 29 T perms. | 20071209 |

45 | 406 moves | Daniel De Vera | L' U' L U 101.5 times = 406 moves. this made me sweat. | 20070609 |

46 | 404 moves | Nathaniel Christian | Just did RUR'U' a bunch of times. Coulda done better if my hand muscles didn't catch on first in the last 10 secs. LIONS ALL THE WAY! | |

47 | 401 moves | James Willoughby | RUR'U' 100 times and add 1 Just lubed up the cube and thought i'd give it a shot or two =) | 20080129 |

48 | 396 moves | Aaron McGhie | R'URU' 99 times. So close to 400 moves | 20060626 |

49 | 395 moves | Lian Park | did the alg RUR'U' | 20070808 |

50 | 386 moves | Kenneth Gustavsson | L' U' L U 96,5 times = 6.4 m/s. | 20060920 |

51 | 370 moves | Alex Kumaki | n/a | 20080224 |

52 | 366 moves | Michael Atkinson | After realizing that I could do 207 moves one handed per minute, and 250 two handed per minute, I realized I had to up my two handed time. I succeeded. | |

53 | 361 moves | Timo Karvonen | 3rd try. | 20070512 |

54 | 360 moves | Ryan Jew | I did R U R' U' 90 times. My hand HURT. | 20080414 |

54 | 360 moves | Chris Meusburger | Yeah! R U R' U' works a lot better now. I got the algorithm 80 times and saw the cube solved 16 times! My hands are burning! | 20080724 |

56 | 357 moves | Wuqiong Fan | 119 RUR' done on a not lubed cube, I could probably get 500 on a good cube. | 20071103 |

57 | 343 moves | Adam Sherwood | Repeated the Petrus Sune 49 times. This hurts. | |

58 | 342 moves | Noah Hevey | [R'URU'] x 85.5 | 20060423 |

59 | 338 moves | Bordage Bertrand | I did 8 moves 169 times from Rouen, France. It was not very difficult to do it. You can find an old video of 888 moves. Note from Chris: The algorithm used was essentially (U4R4) which counts as only 2 moves | 20040410 |

60 | 336 moves | Adam Tonks | Did R U R'U' 14 times. Probably could do better. | 20071027 |

61 | 328 moves | Andrew Roley | 82*(r,B,R',U) follow up a pull with the trigger finger on B with a pull with the middle finger on U. Only got stuck a couple of times. | 20070507 |

62 | 320 moves | Randy Fithian | I am getting better at this. | 20060326 |

63 | 296 moves | Hanson So | I did the moves R'URU' at a resteraunt. I'm proud of myself for this accomplishment. | |

64 | 280 moves | Christopher Muller | using R' U R U' | 20080511 |

65 | 274 moves | Bouvier Arnaud | This is very good !!!!!! But I can do better. I did it the 6 april 2004 from Rouen, in France. I did a 8 moves algorithm 137 times and I am going to break my record after. Note from Chris: The algorithm used was essentially (U4R4) which counts as only 2 moves | 20040406 |

66 | 264 moves | Alesander Puras | I use the L'U'L U moves. It's a low ranking but take to account that I have 15 years. (This hurts a lot.) | 20070925 |

67 | 256 moves | Eirik Strřm | n/a | 20080126 |

68 | 250 moves | Chris Moyer-Grice | I can do better. | |
