Other than just practise I don't think there are any.Hi,
I have trouble finding f2l pieces that are hidden in the brd and bld corners. Even if I'm going slow turning, I still can't see them fast enough.
Any exercises I can do to see those pieces?
You learn to build pair intuitively first in general though you can learn algs for the more awkward cases later.hi, im around sub 40 and trying to improve my f2l.
currently, im still in habit of rotations, and stuff like bringing the corner up first before i even look for its side piece. when i slow down and try to identify the pairs and case first, well it's confusing and slow. so, anyone know of specific exercises to improve f2l pairing? do you just learn each case one by one?
thanks man. i had actually come to this style of practicing on my own before, but when i mess up an insert i could hardly get the cube back to where it was, to try again. but, it still seems the best way to go, and ill keep doing it.You learn to build pair intuitively first in general though you can learn algs for the more awkward cases later.
For the practise, build a cross then have unlimited inspection to try and plan 1 pair completely then close your eyes and solve. Repeat for the next pair and so on.
Eventually, if you feel up to it try to do 2 pairs BLD or just as many as you can. You could also try cross BLD then cross+1 pair etc. This will help with your lookahead and should also help with knowledge of the cube.
With those splits I'd concentrate in cross + F2L, your LL looks more than fine. But I'm a bit slower than you so take my advice with a grain of salt.So I currently average about 18 seconds, and in the last 1-2 months I've only progressed by about a second,(by learning full pll). I pretty much do cross in 3 seconds and f2l+cross in 9-13 seconds, which leaves my LL to take up the remaining 5~ seconds. I'm not sure what to improve. Any suggestions?
I average ~15 with CFOP and it isn't my main method so you may want to take my advice with a pinch of salt.couple questions
during f2l, do fast solvers keep track of which slot is solved, like, retain the knowledge with each insertion for the rest of f2l, or do they just forget about it once it's in, and then peek at what's open for the next pair?
also, is it better to put both pieces in position first, then perform one set of moves for slotting? or should you do it on the fly as you find the pieces? im always doing the latter, like using only half of the known alg, and then figuring out a corrected insertion method once they're connected. but usually this feels like a two part process that takes up a chunk of my time.
a lot of my f2l consists of U moves and looking for open slots. trying to get passed this hump.
