I didn't want to add this to the wiki because I wasn't sure if people would like this alg as much as I do because of the length although the good thing about this alg is that you don't need to regrip and the alg begins AND ends with the normal grip.

Here's the algorithm for righties:

R' F R U R' F R U' R' F' R U M' U' M

And for lefties:

L F' L' U' L F' L' U L F L' U' M' U M

I discovered this alg last year and for some reason I didn't think it was that good. Today I just timed myself with this alg and now I really like it a lot. My average is around 2 secs with this alg.

This is how I personally execute it: (L F' L' U' L F' L' U L F L' U' L)(R' F R) L'.

Tell me what you guys think about this alg.

Why do you need such a long algorithm?

I use R' U2 R2 U R' U R U2 x' U' R' U

Can anyone who uses the standard alg, constantly execute it fast? If so, can you tell us how you do it so fast? I might switch back if I can constantly execute it fast...

The 'standard' alg can be any variation of the Bruno (R U2 R2 U' R2 U' R2 U2 R) with the last 2 F2L pairs put in differently. If you're fast at the Bruno, you should be fast at the standard alg. :p

Hmm I just realised that the standard alg could be performed like this:

R U2 R2 U' R U' R' U2 y r U r'

...which might be nicer although I haven't tried it out yet...

EDIT:

Here is another alg I found which is composed of two OLL algs put together (OLL 45 + OLL 22):

Righties: F R U R' U' F' + R U2 R2' U' R2 U' R2' U2 R

Lefties: F' L' U' L U F + L' U2 L2 U L2' U L2 U2 L'
