# Which is harder: Playing a chess master or solving a rubik's cube

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.

yeah I know how to solve one this is just a forum

Yeah, you can master the cube in a day.  Mastering chess is impossible for some and takes years of study and practice for anyone who can.

Playing a chess master is so easy anyone can do it, I think you mean beating a chess master.

playing a master, but you can't master the rubix cube in a day, it takes about a week.

matthew you know what I meant

You can look up the answer to solving a Rubik's Cube, and have it done in a day. I don't doubt the answer can also be memorized in a day too. I know it didn't take me long when i found answers that i could understand.

Wah, wah, wah!

Yeah, a 3x3 cube can be mastered in a day or two, far easier than beating a master level chess player.  Something like a 5x5 cube or blindfold cubing within a time limit could be a contender though.

Well, I've played lots of masters...but I've never solved the Rubik's cuke.

I learned how to solve the cube in half an hour. You can learn the rules of chess probably a little faster than that. Going by that, playing a master is easier.

Seriously though, it's a ridiculous comparison.

if you know how to solve one you may understand this

• Ri Di R D
• Ui Li U L U F Ui Fi
• U R Ui Ri Ui Fi U F

Worst notation ever. Counterclockwise moves should be notated with an apostrophe, double turns with a 2. I guess you used that 'pogobat' guy's tutorial on youtube..?

Hey, same to you, koala!

sorry I guess I wanted to keep people in mystery, can't fool you and sorry for the notation I was just abbrieviating I thought this would make more sense to people

How DO you solve a rubix cube exactly?

it's difficult to explain in chat go to youtube I'm sure they have tons of videos

I've heard pogobat is good.
