- Jul 1, 2006I don't think he was talking Cube Cup format, I think he meant all
people go at once and first x Done move on...The way you explained it
is faster of 2 moves on. The way he explains it, You have to do it
under a specific time. If you do it, you can move on. There wouldn't
be rounds. I guess technically there would be rounds but not in the
way you mean.
