# Thread: 5BLD's And PandaCuber's Roux Tutorial

1. rUr' r'U'r
Obtw, don't do it F2L style

2. to the alg i say derp

and how, all the tutorials ive seen just say "intuition! diy!" i figured out all the f2l cases intuitively and i cant figure out how to do this -_-

3. (RUR'U')x3 ?
It's f2l-ish but there probably isn't any faster and nicer solution.

I solve SB always middle edge + 2 f2l pair but pairing pairs is done mostly with M slice, I do not do that only when there is some easy to see center+edge pair and corner+middle edge pair that could be easily matched. If you try to improve your way of thinking for SB don't time it, just take a nice long look at the pieces and try to find some nice ways to match them all.

EDIT:

10.14 and one very nice time, just look at my signature - 8.23!! (FB was solved)

4. say this happens, the lsat 2 pieces of ur sb

m slice is open

what do you do

5. r U2 r' U' M' r U r'

or

R M U' M2 R B' R' B R'

or

R M U' M2 U' R' U' r U r'

or

F' U' F U' R U' R' U R U' R'

or

M2 R U' r U2 r U R'

there's a crap load more but lazy and sht.

6. I like U R U' R' U' R U' R' U R U' R'

7. My LSE is getting worse. How can I improve?

4.78 (σ = 0.52)
4.63, 4.86, 7.82, 4.27, 4.29, 4.58, 4.13, 5.33, 5.08, 5.15, 3.80, 4.02, 5.05, 4.99, 4.17, 4.64, 3.37, 6.14, 5.01, 5.22, 5.31, 6.38, 4.85, 4.15, 4.45

My first idea was
r M' U' r' U2 r U R'
but then I realize it is the same as your last one...

10. Anybody like any Roux videos/torials/anything? Ive got time to make them
