Awesome solve!
I love doing yau5 on 6x6x6 and 7x7x7, it's so satisfying... I'll be excited to see how fast you can get with it

Ooh! I do Hoya for 6 but wow this is fast

Hahah I think 800 of your 1281 posts are just the letters "GJ" =PPPP

Seemed like a lot of pauses in parts. If this solve is sub-2 I wonder how much faster you could get with out them.
Also any one else have a sub-2 with YAU5 or 6 or whatever it is called?

Everyone deserves a compliment every now and then

What's the different between Yau and Yau5?

I thought the only difference between the methods and the methods[insert number] were the number of layers used. (Ex. Yau for 4x4, Yau5 for 5x5, Hoya for 4x4, Hoya6 for 6x6, etc)

Correct me if I'm wrong thought I just assumed

how is there still confusion?

...it's been years surely.

the L8E approach is different, in yau5 you solve 4 edges including 2 F2L edges, then solve a double x-cross, and then solve the L4E.

Also any one else have a sub-2 with YAU5 or 6 or whatever it is called?
I think Justin Thomas (ubercuber) does?

I guess it's worth noting that there is actually a difference between yau5 and yau6. What Pedro is doing after cross+centers is pairing all of the middle most edge pieces like 4x4 edges with 3-2-3, and then doing yau5 as if it was 5x5.

Tempted to switch from yau5 to yau6 on 6x6 because it seems pretty nice once you get the hang of it. Anyone who's good at yau5 style solving, feel free to do some sort of a move count test with the 2 because I'd be very interested in the result :3

I just started cubing a couple months ago dude, I haven't really given this much thought :/

Oh, nicely spotted, I missed this! That actually makes a lot of sense, haha... I might try it also

Ottozing, u r rigth, the diference is exactly at edge paring, idk if its the best way but this is the best to me, thanks all other guys, Justin Thomas is sub 2, but he have a diferent method for Last 4 centers

I use Hoya method but I might try your approach for edges, seems interesting.

This.

I'll certainly try it. Rob Yau explained the difference between Yau 5 and Yau 6 to me on a long car journey and after a weekend competing I completely forgot to try what he said. iirc this is what he does.

Yep I can confirm that what Pedro described is what I call yau6. What's interesting is that I've barely told anyone about the method so I was almost convinced that somehow, someone leaked the method to Pedro.

It turns out that he came up it independently from me and I came up with it in July or August 2014. We both happened to have the same idea and called it the same name
