Am I the only one that has trouble playing the video after ~ 1:26? I refreshed a couple times, went onto the youtube page and watched there as well. It just freezes at the part where you're scrambling and the rest of the 6 minutes are just frozen on that frame.

Same here. I had a lot of troubles watching this so I gave up :<

Okay, as far as I knew it was roux since it was simalar and david called it roux so ya. And also now theres a video.



I re-uploaded it and it seems to be working. (I changed it in the first post also)


Again tell me what you think.

hmm is that how you normally turn a square-1? you should use fingers instead of palm/wrist

as for the method, isn't it just a slight variation of vandenbergh which you do (CO+1/2CP)+(1/4EO+1/4EP)+1/2CP+1/4EO+1/4EP+1/2EP
lol that sounded complicated..

I don't see any advantage of this over vandenbergh or even beginner vandenbergh but it's definitely an interesting variation that's just fun to solve with.

btw you can also combine the last two EP steps into one, but that would obviously require more algs

You probably know but although I have had my square-1 a while I only recently started speedsolving it. Because of that I am still learning the finger tricks. I know the method is quite similar to Lars, but it's a lot easier for beginners (I think), and I like solving like that occasionally, it is also more intuitive than standard Lars.
