Skeleton:

L2 B * // Square (2/2)
D’ R // square 2 (2/4)
F U L’ // Square 3 (3/7)
U // cube (1/8)
F2 R'//pseudo F2L -1 (2/10)
R' D’ R // e3 c3 (3-1=2/12)
F' & R' // Pseudo corrections (2/14)

* = B2 R2 F2 U F2 R2 B2 D (8-3 = 5)

6 26 Γ‰picier 1. B R L' U' F D B2 U2 F2 R2 F2 U' R2 B2 D F2 D' U' R' D R2 U' L2 B2 U R (26)

B R L' U' F // EO sq
(R' U' B2 L2 U R2 D' R) // DR (13)
D (D2 R2 D' L2 B2 D') // HTR (20)
(B2 L2) // 3e + eslice
(L2 B2 D2 B2 L2 B2 D2 B2) // eslice (25)

Too much work for a +1

Optimal finish to my DR :
(R2 D R2 D' R2 F2 U') // HTR (20-1)
(D F2 D2 R2 B2) // E-slice (23)
+1 for 24, dunno why I didn't try those (R2 D) setups to HTR-4e4c

Anyways the scramble deserved better than that. I think Cyprian will find very nice block starts
