    hi, all

    i've been cubing for a few years, on and off. i started with 3x3x3 and 2x2x2, and eventually 4x4x4 and 5x5x5. my solving method is a mix of beginner and home-brew methods. i'm not that fast though, and i got bored with my solving routine. so i found this site and decided to study intuitive F2L to keep it interesting and maybe improve my solving time.

    i came up with some F2L moves that i'd like to contribute. they have fewer turns and might be a bit faster, depending on your style.


    cheers,
    cobey

    thanks for the welcome,
    i'm not near speedy right now, my average is 1:50 ish. that's using beginner method for 2nd layer and 5-look last layer where i do 1 move for corner permutation, 2 moves for corner orientation and 2 moves for edges. i just started learning Fridrich / intuitive F2L, so i'm not comfortable enough to time myself with it yet. for hobbies, i mostly do music/studio related stuff. i play keyboard, guitar and bass a bit. i'm also into electronics and software coding.
     
  6. Welcome aboard, fellow cuber. I cannot wait to see your innovations, if you ever post them.

    4 tips from my experience:
    1. Use the search bar.
    2. Don't post a thread unless you're sure it hasn't been discussed before (goes with rule #1).
    3. Use the forum comps to get faster.
    4. NEVER MESS WITH KIRJAVA(Trust me, you don't want to hear about it.)
