Over the next few weeks, Mats Valk and I will be uploading all of our OLS(OLL + Last Slot) algorithms onto our new youtube channel. Mats came up with this idea in 2009 and has been using OLS cases for years, but never published them. I eventually came up with the same idea, and published my algorithms on rowe.cubing.net. When Mats saw this, he contacted me, and we have been working together ever since.

Our OLS method is broken down into two parts:

1. VLS(Valk Last SLot): these are 216 algorithms, created by Mats Valk in 2009, that will force OLL skip with the last pair connected(solvable with R U' R'). There are 8 subsets of VLS, each containing 27 algorithms and based on edge orientation: Winter Variation(developed by Lucas Winter in 2005), UF, UL, UB, UFUL ULUB, UFUB, and all edges unoriented.

2. HLS(Hessler Last Slot): these are 216 algorithms, created by myself in 2013, that will force OLL skip with the last pair broken(solvable with R U R'). There are 8 subsets of HLS, each containing 27 algorithms and based on edge orientation: Summer Variation, UF, UL, UR, UFUR, UFUL, ULUR, and all edges unoriented. These algorithms will be released on our channel once we have finished uploading VLS.

Here is our introduction video:

Mats and I will be alternating with the uploading. So far I have uploaded Winter Variation and VLS(UF), and he will upload VLS(UL) and VLS(UB) within the next few weeks. I hope you enjoy the channel!
