    BH algs from ULB buffer It may kill the idea because BH list is mainly speed optimal and not move optimal, translating would make it not speed-optimal. But works as some reference for the few cases which one couldn't come up with an alg for.

    BH corners for UBL buffer piece

    I can't agree more to what Mike Hughey says. But for those who want to refer to a list and use BH for a different buffer, I wrote a quick dirty script to do the job. You can check it here. It may kill the idea because BH list is mainly speed...

    A Quick Guide to WCA Skewb Notation

    Does pyraminx need ULRB? I thought it is sufficient just to have just any three of them to generate all states. Please correct me if I am wrong.

    BH Tutorial

    Try l2 instead of L2. This would work since it's a corner comm. Instead of l2, you can write x2 R2. This will cancel an R. L2 R' D' R U2 R' D R U2 L2 becomes x2 R2 R' D' R U2 R' D R U2 R2 x2. And this on cancelling R becomes x2 R D' R U2 R' D R U2 R2 x2. Now if you want to remove the x2, you...

    Algorithm Simplification?

    R' B2 U' B' U = D B' D' B2 R' I don't know how one can arrive at this logically, but I found this by comparing two V perms R' U R' U' B' R' B2 U' B' U B' R B R R' U R' U' B' D B' D' B2 R' B' R B R This is how my thought process went from here on.
