2. ### I went from a 60 seconds solver to a 6 seconds solver in one day! Warning things are not as they seem. You might laugh.

3. ### Can someone give me a list of all pieces and the letters they correspond to in Old Pochmann?

Hi! I'm just getting back into speedcubing and I decided to try and learn how to solve the cube blindfolded. I know how it works, I'm just not familiar with the letters yet. Would someone be able to send me a list of all of the piece letters for corners? For example, I know edges are: AQ BM CI...

What is intuitive Cubing and why would you want to do it? Intuitive cubing is solving without using memorized algorithms. If you want to solve with world-class speed, you need to memorize algorithms. But if speed is not your main goal, then there are several reasons to solve intuitively: 1. If...
11. ### Best beginner's method?

If you were to teach someone how to solve the cube, what method would you start them off on? Because I might be getting some people to solve a cube soon. But obviously if it's too 'hard', they'll give up. What method do you think is best? Some methods: LBL - One alg 4LLL, Daisy Cross Keyhole...

I’ve never dissembled a cube above 3x3, but I’m considering replacing a slightly damaged corner on my new QiYi WuJi 7x7. 1. Is the right approach to remove a pair of adjacent edges next to it first—by turning those 2 layers to 45 degrees and... twisting/pulling the 2 edges together as one? 2...

I am new to cubing and I have taken the blindfold solving quest upon me. I can solve 2x2-5x5, so I guess I am less nooby than others. I can solve corners blindfolded, and I am now working on edges. Does anyone have any tips?
