    [Help Thread] 2x2, Guimond method predicting separation

    Hello, I use the Guimond method and I like it very much :):). Most of my 2x2 solves are between 6s and 8s but I would like to be sub-6 without learning another method. I think that the key point is predicting separation to avoid a look at the down face during the solve. How can I do that...

    Learning EG-1 before CLL on 2x2

    I was wondering if it would be more beneficial to learn EG-1 before I learn CLL. EG-1 is for the cases with an adjacent corner swap, and there is a 2/3 chance that the easiest face to make will have two corners swapped adjacently and only a 1/6 chance that it will be fastest to build a layer...
