    I mean, when I have found the alg I want and have started using fingertricks, how do I practice?

    Please don't just say do it over ad over again, can someone please give me some tips?
    Sorry, but do it over and over again.
    Do it on stackmat.
    And solve the cube a lot of times (1-2 or more hundred solves a day) - this will improve all your algs
    BTW, you can follow my second advice, and use first only on algs that are very rare.

    Do I always have to do them fast, or does it help to do them slowly also?

    When I was sub-1'ing, I just did them on stackmat many times, until I get sub-1(at least once), or until I realise that I need to stop or search for another alg.
    Again, if your goal isn't sub-3 on 2x2 average - just do a lot of solves, it will help. I think

    Default 2x2 UFR + UBR corner swap

    Sorry for the bump, but I thought this belongs in this thread.

    For the UFR + UBR adjacent corner swap alg, I currently use the T-perm (14 HTM / 15 QTM). So, I found the optimum algs with the same generator, which stand at 10 HTM / 13 QTM, and there are 20 algs which I have attached.

    So the same question: Do/Would you use one of these optimal algs or a longer (turn count)/faster alg? And if you use a different one, what is that alg?

    I use: R U2 R' U' R U2 R' F R' F' R

    Practice it a few times, and eventually you will get a nice flow. It is one of my fastest algs with Ortega, so, I recommend trying to learn to do it fast.

    I just did a few practices with each alg. w/ the one I gave you, I can get sub-1.3, and average sub-1.4
    w/ the traditional T perm, I got a 1.5 single, and average around 1.8. I also got more bad executions above 2 seconds, mainly because the alg doesn't flow as well for me.

    I use x' R U' R' U L' U2 R U' R' U2 R (11 htm)

    also R' U L' U2 R U' R' U2 R2 x' (10 htm) is good
