What is your BLD method?

Hi Peter...

I use Stefan Pochmann's method as well.. My best time is 2:20.91.

However, that best time was done with a small adjustment of his method. I solved the edges in three cycles, mostly.

I am working on learning a '3-cycle' method for BLD. Not by first fixing the orientation first, but Pochmann Style... I believe this can be done for both edges and corners. Maybe I'll make a page about it some day...

I wonder if more members are interested in this subject :)

Bye!

Can you guys send me a link to that method? I would be interested in learning. Thanks
Pat
Sure Patrick. The method is here.

Some people find it confusing... Especially if you have never seen another BLD method before, and have little cubing experience, it's quite confusing I must say. If you need help, just ask in this forum.

Good luck,

Jo?l.

Guys, im tempted to learn BLD. How hard is it?
Well, Scott, how hard is it to learn how to solve a cube? Not hard, right? But it did take you some time to get the hang of it!

The same thing applies to blindfold cubing. You will have to put some effort into learning it.. But once you get the hang of it, it's not really that hard... Ok, it's a bit harder than normal cubing, because it takes more from the brain. But the brain will get used to it.

Do you just use RL'UR'U'LR'FRF' and its varients for this? I tried this about a month ago and could barely do it with my eyes open :blink:
The set up moves are a pain, and I don't even want to think about doing it for corners.
Maybe you have an easier way of doing it?

I use all kinds of algorithms that cycle three edges. That alg is one of the examples... But I believe RUR'U' r R'URU' r' has the same result as that alg you gave.

I use the cycles method, though I'm not that good -yet-. Best time is 6:20. Anyone else in here use the PAO method? Peg System? Any special memory techniques. PAO has been a blessing for my memorization time.
