How do people solve extreme puzzle in 1 minute?
Just to type numbers takes more time.

I think its impossible. I played sudoku for years and reach the point where i cant do any better than now.

Still my best is 2:06.

1.30 might br possible? I think? But faster than that, i think he probably cheats.

My best time for extreme is 1:16, I can be guaranteed to get under 1:30 if I just play a few puzzles and end up with an easier one, and I always complete under ~3 min. Not cheating for sure, maybe you just haven't found the best strategy for playing. If you have a good strategy and play a lot you will be bound to end up with easier puzzles and get pretty good win times. I'm sure I can get under 1:00 if I play long enough

Maybe look up some game strategy before accusing better players of cheating

Real World Examples

This an old video of mine with :39 creating a new game in the recording and completing it without much effort, while sick with a cold/flu a few years ago.

Incremental Progress
As you can see, in 2016-2017, my records were at 30-32sec. Fast forward to 2020-2021, my records are 27-28sec and can now do a 30-35 second virtually every day I grind a bunch of easy sudokus.

Puzzle Variation
Now this doesn't mean that every game is gonna be this low. Most of my games still finish 35-50sec, a few are 1:00-1:30. occasionally I will be super tired and I get a hard puzzle, and with brainfarts will do a 3:00-3:30.

Savants
I see jasmil82 constantly hitting 20-25sec, and occasional he'll upload a 28-30sec - so I have a chance to take the win some days But it is very possible. I don't think I'm the fastest, and I'm sure I can do 25 sec someday. Phrisbee87 and NateDogg are people I've competed with for years now. The three of us used to be in the 35-45sec range, and the last couple years we're now constantly posting 26-36sec times - it's not just me, you'll see us all near the top of the leaderboard most days.
Now I'm sure a savant with a perfect run, under perfect conditions, and with the easiest easy sudoku all converging at one point could hit 17seconds once in a blue moon, and consistently hit 20-25sec. So I would only question times that are 15sec or lower, or if they are consistently under 20sec.
