    which do you think is harder? Facing a chess master (like Bobby Fisher, Kasparov, Karpov, etc) or facing the eight wonder of the world, the rubik's cube.

    Solving the Rubik's cube is easy.  There is at least one video on youtube that shows you in 2 simple steps to solve it. First step is to turn the left hand side of the cube as you face it one turn counterclockwise.  Step 2 is to turn the top of the cube one turn clockwise.  Repeat the 2 steps in order until the blocks on the face of each side are all the same color.

    If you want the website address of the video, please let me know.

    Carlsen might see them as equals.

    I think that also works against chess masters, unless they double as a kung fu master.

    Actually, I think solving a rubik's cube might be easier, if you think about it.

    there's a competition called speedcubing, how fast can you solve a rubik's cube.

    however, there's no competition about how fast can you beat a GM Undecided

    They have blitz tournaments.

    That probably indicates that solving a cube is easier.

    Rubik's cube can be solved from any position by following a simple algorithm. Once you know the algorithm, it's merely a matter of applying it. 

    The same is not true of beating a chess master. 

    algorithms there are more than one

    Okay, give me one good reason why one-handed solving should be harder than two-handed solving.

    I think it sounds much more physically challenging.
