# Thread: OLL 23 Technique?

1. ## OLL 23 Technique?

I'm having a tough time with technique/finger-tricks for OLL 23:
O23.gif (R2 D') (R U2) (R' D) (R U2 R)

Conversely, Bob Burton and Badmephisto do it with headlights toward them:

Unlike with other algorithms, I just can't find a rhythm or way of breaking these down that make sense. The headlights-toward-me approach is slightly easier for me, but still clunky. Does anyone have a good technique that they can describe or maybe a good youtube video to point me to? Thanks.

2. R2'D' RU2R' D RU2R
Left ring for all D moves
If you confused i make video

Make the R2' in second alg R2
Use the two for different corner permutations

3. x' RU'R'DRU2R'D'RU'R'

4. Headlights towards and Sune, anti-Sune?

5. R2
D (right ring)
R
U2 (double flick)
R'
D' (left middle)
R
U2 (double flick)
R

6. Thanks everyone for the QUICK replies!

This simple change made a big difference for me. That makes it (R2 D) (R' U2) (R D') (R' U2 R').

Do you mean for the D', too? I definitely use my left ring for D, pulling toward the front. I can see how it's less choppy to use that for D', rather than breaking up the right hand moves. But using the left ring to push the back-down-left corner toward the right is mechanically hard/weird for me -- at least for now. I'll keep practicing.

Playing with the other suggestions now, too. Thanks again.

That's a good 2-gen alg.
