Hi. I discovered-invented this method in 2011, then yesterday (1/20/13) i discovered than there is an super look-alike method called: ZAGOREC METHOD. I call my method "square-1 for 3x3" or "human kociemba" (but kociemba requires 20 moves, and this method LOT more)

Ok. My method is:
1) Separate white/yellow faces (Intuitive)
2) Solve middle layer (Begginer: 1 alg; expert: 3 algs)
3) Build a 1x1x3 block using U turns, R turns, r turns or M turns, then put the block in DR position. (Intuitive)
4) Build the opposite 1x1x3 and put it in DL position (if you built yellow and green block and in the corner is red & orange, now build yellow and BLUE, then corners red & orange) (In example solve this will be clear) (Also, intuitive)
5) Solve D edges (intuitive)
6) PLL (21 algs )
7) Parity (R2 U2 R2 U2 R2 U2)

EXAMPLE SOLVE: to do
