Questions:
You dont orient corners? After EO, youre supposed(Lars Site) to 'Niklas' the corners.

#### JLarsen

You're "supposed" to use COLL EPLL in standard Petrus. I just do OLL PLL. Average TPS? Well I get somewhere around 60 moves, and I average somewhere around 15 seconds. That's 4 TPS. It's what I'm trying to work on currently.

60 MOVES!? Isnt petrus supposed to be efficient?

#### Noahaha

##### blindmod
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO at 2:30 put the RED edge in first so that while you're putting in the WHITE edge you can influence edge orientation!!!!!

The high movecount of the 2-gen stuff is what made me quit Petrus.

#### JLarsen

I thought that might be the reason but I didn't want to act like I was too good for the reason to be my solutions

Edit: Wait. I'm supposed to be selling Petrus, right? 60 MOVES IS FINE. PETRUS IS THE BEST METHOD. IM REALLY GOOD.

Can't say I've ever done that outside of FMC/slow solves.
Really? It's actually very simple. You just have to know which edges are flipped by each of your edge insertions. Then, you can usually use one or two moves to save three during EO. This improves lookahead too.

Yeah I know how it works I've just never incorporated it into my speedsolves.

Eek. Is my move count really high? Relative to averaging 15 seconds? Relative to a sub 10 solver? You really enjoy reconstructions don't you =P.

#### 5BLD

##### Member
IMO one should keep low movecount right from say sub-40, improving on that slowly but in an ideal world only having to work on TPS/lookahead right down to sub-8 and beyond; the base efficiency is there from the beginning.

#### Owen

60 moves seems fine to me.

##### REAL Fingertricks!
@JLarsen: THANK YOU! This was exactly what I was looking for. Very interesting to see your thought process. I owe you one!

Tbh, yes; it's about the same as CFOP with 3LLL.

Just reading Brest's epic reconstructions, your 2x2x2 seems great every solve, but from there it just goes downhill. I think it's a bad thing that my CFOP is more efficient than your petrus.
Props for doing these though.
