    Advanced Petrus / block building

    First a small update: I've been doing around 25 solves with a metronome and it turns out I really, really suck. I need to skip on average 6 beats on F2L, but nothing for LL except sometimes a single beat to have time to identify a G-perm. And this is done at 50 beats/minute! I've looked around...

    Advanced Petrus / block building

    I actually think my original post was about misleading, mostly because I didn't really understand the problem. Reading your replies have set me on what I think is the right track and I now at least where the problem is and I have some ideas what to do about it. I'll describe my thoughts briefly...

    Advanced Petrus / block building

    I think I should just stop timing for a while and focus on examining the various F2L steps and see where I can improve. I think I can gain quite a few seconds by just trying to look ahead more and find pieces before I actually need them. Regarding LL times, I think I'm a lot faster if we ignore...

    Advanced Petrus / block building

    Some more information, then! I timed ten solves to get some idea of F2L/LL speed (of course not too accurate, but it should say something). I average 22.9 on F2L, which is probably really slow. The average total time for these solves was 30.6, which gives an LL average of 7.7 seconds (it should...

    Advanced Petrus / block building

    Hi! First some background: I've been cubing for a while now and even though I've learnt some other methods, I still use Petrus for F2L + EO, which gives me just a few OLL cases and then full PLL, which I know. With this, my best average is roughly 27 seconds. I feel that what I need to...

    Best time with Petrus F2L + beginners OLL/PLL?

    I used only Petrus before and averaged 40 or something like that, but that could be lowered a lot by getting better at F2L, i spend way too much time simply finding the right cubies. If I'm not mistaken, Petrus averages far below 20 and I assume he means using his own system? Then I changed LL...

    The FMC thread

    First of all, thanks for your encouragement and your advice! I think I understand most of what you're talking about, even though I might not yet be able to apply it. I have a few questions, though! Premoves: A move done prior to the scramble, which is then corrected at the end of the solve...

    The FMC thread

    First FMC Hello! This weeks FMC was my first ever and I write this in order to get some feedback. I haven't been cubing for very long and I don't have such a deep understanding as some people here seem to have. I have learnt Petrus, Heisse (just for a few hours) and a 3-cycle method for BLD...
