Great job Matthew!

I’ve looked on your solution: awesome start and later handling of the
solved parts.


Please correct me if I’m wrong:

People who broke 500 twists barrier on 3^4:
-Mattew Sheerin, Roice Nelson, Audrey Astrelin, Klaus Weidinger, me and
I believe there was somebody else
People who broke 400 twists barrier on 3^4:
-Mattew, Roice, Remi

251 barier is damn low… I think Roice has reached limit of his method
(so am I) but now Matthew provided a proof of new method so we will
see how much we can learn from it :)
Roice if you want to try a new record from the very beginning I propose
to use Matthew’s scramble. That will be fun to see how much close we can
be in distinct solutions.

All the best,
