In the 3x3 One-Handed event, competitors have 2 attempts to get a time below the cutoff. If they get a solve below the cutoff, then they are eligible to finish their average of 5 solves. Any solve that exceeds the time limit will be stopped and given a DNF (did not finish).

*4x4 Blindfolded and 5x5 Blindfolded will run CONCURRENTLY. Competitors have a total of 1 hour to complete as many attempts as they wish (up to 3 attempts each of 4BLD and 5BLD). In other words, you can compete in both 4BLD and 5BLD, but you will NOT have 1 hour for each event. You will have 1 hour to complete all your attempts in BOTH events.

In the 3x3 Multi-Blind event, competitors will get 1 attempt, subject to WCA Time Limits, as outlined here: https://www.worldcubeassociation.org/regulations/#H1b
