tl;dr - efficient 'Fish and Chips' with 27-alg 'Fish' selected from short, ergonomic, well-known algs ... followed by L3C 'Chips' (commutators)
Hello again. I am back with another EO-solved LL variant that tugs the pareto front lower still, albeit leveraging some cheap commutator tricks. It is...
Various versions of this chart have been floating around Discord for a while, so I thought it would be beneficial to share with others. Normally, this wouldn't warrant it's own thread, but I think it's more important than many current threads.
It compares algorithm count and move count for...
Cardan Reduction is a novel "LS/LL" approach for methods that preorient edges before the LS (ZZ, Petrus, Heise, CFOP with edge control). It features a relatively low case count and movecount. "LS/LL" is in quotes because the solution is not discretized in that way.
This variant leverages...
In ‘Julius Caesar’, William Shakespeare writes, “Now let it work. Mischief, thou art afoot. Take thou what course thou wilt.”
Good old William is right; mischief has been afoot…at the Polish Nationals 2013, during the BLD finals.

JARCS ("Just Another Rubik's Cube Solver") was one of the greatest utilities available to the community, and I doubt anyone who used it would disagree. For those that don't know, it was an online program that would solve the first couple steps of the major (and minor) speedsolving methods...
i made this a few months ago, but i didn't post it here b/c i was banned. :/
i just remembered about it. it's pretty OK, in my opinion, except that it probably is buggy, and there is no visual "easing" which will probably make any legit programmers spit up their breakfast

Do you guys know of any faster? I only know of Porkynator's 10.63.
Solves 1 2 and 4 were lucky
solve 5 was typical,
and solve 3 never happened.
What do you guys think, is Petrus viable for sub-10?
Let me know.
Question: Which of the following algs is the fastest?
C) OLL 20
D) A and C
It's common knowledge that you can solve each and every 2GLL case with a combination of sunes and [U] moves.
Here is the distribution I found:
There are 85 2GLL cases (including...
ZZ-EF (edges first) is an interesting and potentially superior approach to the only legitimate 21st century speedcubing method, ZZ. The premise of this method is to capitalize on lucky cases when they appear, and to ignore unlucky cases that other speedsolving methods would...
This is my first successful average of 5 (without any DNFs) using Porkynator's second approach to ZZ-D. This involves solving the permutation of the corners BEFORE completion of the first block, as is the true definition of the missing link.
See this page for details about the variant.
Have you ever solved a 4x4x4 up to the PLL stage, glanced at the front face and a portion of the right face, and had this instantaneous feeling of extreme unfamiliarity with the color pattern you saw there? Has this led you to know that you have parity, before you can even check?

like how's it going? i'm 17 from Connecticut, i average 16~17 on the 3x3, and i'm going to the Newark H2H 2012 tomorrow.
i'm in the process of learning the ZZLL algs, but i don't want to incorporate the phasing aspect until i know more than half of ZZLL. otherwise i'll have wasted my time...
