# Thread: How to Get Faster using the Fridrich / CFOP Method

1. What happens if you don't know an algorithm for one of the cases?

Solve it with OLL/PLL, COLL/PLL, or other 2-look method of your choice until you've learned it.

3. No longer relevant after thread merge.

4. I've been trying some intuitive ZBF2L and sometimes I can get it so that the last layer edges are oriented and permuted. Has anyone else had a similar result?

Happens relatively often by accident, but I don't find it a particularly useful occurrence, because for most cases I can't solve the corners with one alg without disturbing edge permutation, so LL is still 2 looks for me anyway.

6. ## Need help with F2L

i am starting to get discouraged in learning speed cubing as there are tooo many algorithms to learn....if there is an easier way to learn it i would be extremely glad....thx
(this is my first post)

7. Go with intuitive. See RiDo's Hunting story:

By the way, I've been practicing F2L for about a month and a half now. I finally had an average of 12 under 60 two days ago, and now I'm down to 51.65. This was after weeks at 1:20.

What happened with me was that I suddenly knew where the interesting cubes were. When I see the green side on the top of the cube, I know what's on the hidden side. I can't explain how this happened, I didn't do much other than just practice the intuitive stuff.

And even though it's intuitive, there are certain cases that come up over and over and are kind of inconvenient. You end up developing an intuitive solution to them and become quite fast. However, some of these have better non-intuitive algorithms. But that's for later.

8. I have been cubing for about two months now. I started with this video to learn F2L with pairs with intuition:

So no algoritms

And then I found this:

Right now I have average of 1:01 on 12. And a PB of 56.

9. Ive been cubing for too months too.
I went with intuitive then looked at cyoubx's F2L tips and tricks videos.
I don't know my avg(Average)But I got a PB of 20.45.

10. YddEd, that is awesome. I see you allready did a competition too. I can only dream of 20 seconds. LOL
