F2L example solve game

As Filipe @Filipe Teixeira is wanting to enhance his F2L skills, I'm offering a little solve critique:

Next: L F2 D' L2 F2 L2 U L2 U R2 D' L2 U' F' D R B' D2 B' F'

U' L' U L U' R' F R F'
L U L' d R U' R'
U' L' U' L
U2 y' L' U L U2 L' U' L
(ninja'd two times)


Your 4th slot doesn't need the U2, just a different algo. The y or y' is still OK, giving these 2 choices:

y R' U' R U' R' U R
or
y' L' U' L U' L' U L

Your first slot (FR) could be done without the sledge:

U' L' U L R U' R'
or
U' L' U' L R U R'

Alternative choices would be:

(BR) L' U L R' U R ( empty slot use )

(BL) y R' U R U' R' U' R
or y' L' U L U' L' U' L

(FL) U' L' U' L U' L' U L
or U R' U' R L' U2 L ( empty slot use, though doesn't save much, QTM turns is the same )

and:

Next: U2 R2 B U2 L2 F' R2 B2 R2 L D2 L B' U2 R2 U F' U2

L U2 L' f R f' //1P
U2 f' L' f //2P
F' U F U' F U F' // 3P
U R U2 R' U2 R U R' //4P


The 3rd pair would likely be faster if you had rotated first, and solved with R-U moves:

y' R' U R U' R U R'

and the 4th slot would be slightly shorter if you had done U2 first:

U2 R U R' U' R U R'

or as you seem OK with F moves, the neatest solution is:

F' U F R U R

I hope this interested you.

Just wanted to add that my solves on example solves don't reflect what I actually use in real solves as I tend to use some fancy solutions
but thanks for the critiques if you want to share advanced f2l tricks I'm open to suggestions

F' R2 B F2 L2 F D2 F U2 R2 U2 L' B2 F L D F D R2
y L' R' U R L2 U' L'
U' R' U' R
U R U2 R' U2 R U R'
d L' U L U' L' U L
