Also, I have alot of F2L tricks using empty slots and other tricks on my site
Cool site Dennis.
yes I like it too! actually just what I was looking for.
also one of those sites that I havent read again since I first found it. back then I didnt understand much of anything.
@ Dennis do you find much use in these tricks?
comparing to learning basic F2L, how much effort did you put into it?
+ that thread was great too! Dennis, have you got all of those tricks on your site? (too lazy to check right now :))
Yikes!!!! :blink: So much to learn, I think I will stick to my own intuitive F2L, still good tough your site...
I try to use the shortcut tricks as much as possible. However, they require alot of training since there are a lot of cases. I have not listed the reflections/mirrors. The main problem is to "see" the shortcut, if the shortct is not in front of my eyes, I do not scan the cube looking for the shortcut, but instead do a standard F2L algorithm. Once I feel really comfortable with all shortcuts (from all angles) I belive I can make really low times. I belive that they are worth learning. Start with the empty slot cases, I belive you have a great advantage of learinng them. As for the "pieces stuck" cases they are infrequent and hard to see fast in regular speed solving.
And, yes, I belive that my list is complete, except for the reflections...
I believe i can find use in empty slots as I solve F2L now. (if you mean solving the corner edge pair using other slots than its own).
How fast can you solve the F2L including the cross? my best times are 12-14 sec
also, you did make a prtiable version of the F2L shotcut table right?
I cant find it on your site :(
Easy, go to my site, click Rubiks cube->Expert->F2L->Empty slot or Pieces stuck respectively scroll down to bottom of each page, there's the link
ah, I see! Thanks! cant wait to practice this
