Hi, folks. I'm new here and I got some advice which helped me a lot. I used to solve 3x3 in 3 min... 2.50 min... And right now I got 1.08 min. My problem still is F2L. I get lost sometimes. Well, I won't give up and I'll continue practicing. My current goal is less than 1 min. Thanks for all, guys. One day, I'll be great as you guys are. See ya.

Thanks for your support. Well, this past week I got a 56 sec which made me so happy! lol! I'm dealing with a kind of intuitive F2L. Sometimes I get stuck doing that. My average time is 1.10, 1.20, and in the worst cases 1.50min.

It's still hard to get under 1 min. However, I can feel my improvement. I used to solve 3x3 in 3 min or so. Now I'm closer to reaching my goal.

Hi, speedcubers. I'm still posting my progress here, in the same topic, because I don't want to flood the forum with messages. however, I'd like to thank you all for sharing tips and technics which are helping me a lot. Today I got under 1 minute 4 times in a row. I'm so excited and of course I'll keep practicing.

Random question, do you use 2 look oll and 2 look pll?

If your struggling with f2l try doing some slow solves with just f2l to get your recognition better

Yes, I do. however, I must practice more. sometimes I get stuck moving the cube as I said. I'm improving... I feel that. Your comment was pertinent 'cause I went to Youtube and I found out a new algorithm that I didn't know. f R U R' U' f = I'm going to use it in two situations. Thanks a lot!

If you can, using a sticker less cube will help with recognition. The RS3 M is a good one.

Good point! My cube sticks too much. I look up the price of a RS3 cube here in Brazil and I can buy it for R$90,00 ($ 16.50). It's not expensive. Well, I'll order one on Monday.

That cube also has magnets which helps make your turning more accurate. You'll reach your goal in no time.
