    Algorithm Selection

    Currently, I'm working on full Fridrich. I know intuitive F2L, am working on advancing from 2-look to 1-look OLL, and know full PLL. I get all my OLL and PLL algorithms from badmephisto's site http://www.badmephisto.com. I've seen people constantly emphasizing how important good algorithms are...

    New 2x2 L-orientation (to my knowledge)

    L' U L U F U' F' I havent seen this anywhere else. I figured it out while messing around with my cube. Front left: Faces you Front right: Faces up Back left: Faces up Back right: Faces right For CLL, it swaps the front two cubies

    1LOLL even parity

    I've been taking a look at this recently: recognising the OLL case when you have parity on 4x4x4 or 6x6x6, and solving in 1 look. I couldn't find a thread on it already, which was surprising, but since I have all the cases generated I thought I should gauge what people think of it. There are...

    No Friends Who Cube

    Hey, I am at a very young age to be cubing, (11 actually) and I am very bored that nobody cares about this but me. I know one person that might want to learn, since his older brother is the person who made me start. Though I am not sure since he is sorta a show off. He knows like one...

    I just wanted to put out a question there to ask about what other people train when they train cubing. I personally train mostly 3x3x3-6x6x6 and when I do I mostly do averages. SO basically only complete solves. Before I was training my OLL's and PLL's too but I stopped since I learned them...

    Probability Thread

    This is just a thread for people to post interesting possibilities of a case. Like, it is a 1/72 chance for a PLL skip. Enjoy.

    [Help Thread] Lookahead Discussion

    I posted most of this in the Introduction forum but I'll repeat a little bit here... I've been cubing for almost 2 weeks now, not too intensely since i have the job/wife/child to take care of but I've been spending time with the cube almost every night at some point. I learned enough of the...

    Why Not Teach CLL/ELL?

    I do not know if I have it right but it seems that CLL + ELL has less algorithms than OLL + PLL. CLL combined with ELL has 70 algorithms altogether compared to OLL + PLL which has 78 algorithms altogether. That's only a difference of 8 algorithms but in each case the number of algorithms...

    [Help Thread] 4x4 Discussion and Help

    I need help making my time better... I use reduction(6 edge pairing method) followed by fridrich F2l then 3look LL. My average is about 3 mins and i think I've finished reduction at around 1:30-1:45.. the rest is all 3x3x3.. which i think i'll improve on one day.. In my reduction, my...

    [Help Thread] OLL and PLL Discussion

    Hi Guys, 2 weeks ago i bought a cube (3x3) now iám learning solving this via fridrich. I can solve the F2L but now i'am stuck at the OLL and PLL part of Fridrich. I found a couple of sheets with the algorithms from OLL and PLL but eeuh... did you guys realy learn this all out of your...

    [Help Thread] Algorithm Memorization Discussion

    At the point i am at now i guess it be about time to learn OLL, however theres 57 of them, i already know about 18 from PLLs and some memorization here and there. Now i want to learn the rest of them, right now i have notecards layed out with the pattern on one side and the alg on the back...
