im usually way to tired to even attempt to learn an alg after a school day. its gonna be more like "learn 3-4 algs on sunday and cram 20+ algs per day during march break and summer"
I found that it's best to learn algs at times where you can't do much else, so perhaps on a car ride to school would be a good time to learn algs.

OLLCP is harder to learn than ZBLL, isn't it? Algs most likely suck, reco is okey, but the award is pretty low for such a big subset. Is this even worth your time?
Good luck!

car ride to school = SLEEP

I dont think its harder to learn, and recog is definitely easier. zbll recog is some weird edge colours to recognize cycle. OLLCP is just CMLL recog plus EOLL. I just see which edges need to flip and pick 1 of 8 algs. I probably already know like over half of OLLCP anyway... and yes, its worth my time. I can do CMLLEO when the 2 edges on bottom are oriented, which is 1/6 or something but can be forced "pretty easily" (gonna make some LS algs for flipping D edges while inserting). Thanks!

I said reco is okey. Well I knew you were solving Roux (lucky you), but I didn't see point in learning it for Roux, thanks for nice replay.

Since you are familiar with recognising CP, please tell me how do you recognize CP for sunes/antisunes (or just which stickers)
Thanks in advance!

alex lau says its worth it so I will learn it! (then I'll have a quarter of full CMLLEO)

for antisune, I put oriented corner at UFL. the 4 stickers I recog are UBL, UBR, FLU and FRU. the cases are right bar, left bar, bars, X, slash, and back slash (you'll see what I mean if you click link in my sig to my CMLLs and scroll to antisune). for sune, I put oriented on UFR and same recog.

Go for full CMLLEO, don't limit yourself :)
For sunes I should just mirror the case? I wish I wouldn't switch to Roux just for weekend. Thanks!
