I guess it's a "luck of the draw" sort of thing. Probably, most of the really fast records, do come after more than one attempt. We all have the chance to better the second third or fourth time around. When it comes to Cryptos, we're not all equal, and it wouldn't be much fun if a lot of things were done to equalize it. Sometimes there are new puzzles, and for slower solvers, like me, this is the time to set records
, otherwise, you take pride in getting it in only two or three times the record.
