So I'm interested in L2L (last two layers) and I want to see how you guys solve it

I'll appreciate if you provide an Alg Cubing link and comment your solution and method.

Please, speed solving, no FMC

Here follows 50 scrambles. I'll try to update this post often with your solutions. Please contribute! :D

When you say speedsolving, do you mean actually try the scramble with stackmat, and then reconstruct? If so I didn't *quite* do that for the one scramble I tried, but the solution is pretty much what I would go for if I somehow got this scramble in comp

Scramble 1 (solution was XXcross into normal last two pairs with CFOP, and a ZBLS that lead to an unintended OLL skip)

I dont quite get it. Am i supposed to keep the bottom layer solved -all the time between each substep? Can i just tip the cube over and use roux?

Speelsolving: Not Fmc.
No fmc hacks or scramble manipulation
just the way we solve when timing or even slow solving. But if you can show some useful L2L tricks that you'd normally use, feel free to share

I woudn't tell you to use roux, do you think that's the best way to solve?

F R2 D2 L2 U2 B' D2 U2 L2 B2 L2 D' B2 D' B2 L' D F2 R2

D2 R U' R' L' U L u2
U2 L' U' L R U R'
U' F' R U2' R' U2' R' F R U R U R' U' R U' R' U'

Same approach as before, and if I'm being honest probably how I'm going to approach all 50 scrambles if I end up doing them (Keyhole XXcross>F2L pair>Standard LSLL stuff)

Kinda interesting thing to note is the opposite edges in the front at the start, which basically meant I was going to end with two free pairs

y2 D2 U' L U2 L2' U' L D2 //P1+P2
U2 R' U R //P3
U' R U' R' //P4
U2 R U2 R2 D' R U2 R' D R2 U' R' U R U' R' U' //LL

8.34 Tripod solve. First 2 pairs are solved while sacrificing the other 2 corners, but I predicted they would be paired by the D2 so I was able to preserve them with my P1+P2 solution. The solved block on the U layer was pure luck, I know Tripod LL so I was able to one-look it.
