    I'm not the best at recognition. Usually I have to do an AUF to recognize. Anyone know how I can avoid that?

    Have more than one way of recognizing so that in some stickers are not/less visible because of the angle you can look at other ones. It'll mostly just come from practicing a lot.

    Hy everyone!
    I'd like to ask for a PBL for the following case. No matter how many Ortega guides I check, I can't seem to find one. I guess it's a recognition problem. IMG_20170102_194709.jpg
    Thanks in advance!

    I knew this one for switching two vertical bars, but it really does solve this one too. Thanks!

    So my 6 year old knows a basic way to solve the 2x2. She seems interested in getting faster. What would be a good next step up?

    I have 2 algorithms that I think don't exist yet. Can anyone confirm this?
    Algorithms:
    • R U R' U' R U2 R U' R2
    • R' F R' B2 R F' R

  12. Is there a mistake in the first alg?
    Second alg is the same as R' F R' F2 R F' R

    Yes, first alg is actually:
    • R U R' U' R U2 R U' R2
    Also, the second alg does not merit the same result as what you mentioned.
     
  14. I meant R' U R' F2 R F' R

    I found the second one on cyothekings website

    First alg is already an LEG-1 case

    Go to a competition as soon as you get the opportunity, no matter what you average. People at competitions don't care what you average; everyone's just there to have a good time. Really, the only person you're ever competing against is yourself. Competitions are mainly about the awesome social experience. :)

    I am not into seriously solving the 2x2, although I'll probably start soon. I use basically CFOP 3x3 algs, but I'm looking for a solution to a PLL problem I keep getting where two diagonally opposite corners are oriented and permuted, but the other two are oriented but not permuted and need to be flipped. My current solution is to do two J-perms, but that always drops me 4 seconds or so, due to the quality of my cube. Thanks!
