# The Roux "Example Solve" Game!

Yeah 1 look cmll is the last thing I plan on learning just because I hate learning alg sets. I strongly believe that 1 look nmcmll can be possible in a speed solve though, and atm I only ever build adj blocks just to get used to it. However recognition certainly can be frustrating sometimes, there's no denying that.
I think it is possible, but it would take practice. One advantage is you would get a clue as to what kind of swap just by which corners are yellow and which are white (assuming those are your Up Down faces). That will be a late addition to my Roux game for sure though.

The way I recognize the orientation right now is by looking for my L/R colours on the corners as I finish the RB, this tells me what up/down colours to look for on what corners. It should be possible to determine the permutation based on those L/R colours as well, but I don't have enough experience to say whether that would be fast or not. Non-matching blocks are in a sense a type of colour neutrality, so I believe the earlier you learn it the better.

We aren't getting off topic here are we? It's all roux related after all.

As for the LSE, I would use (misoriented centers):
U2 M' U M U M' U' M' U M2 U M U2 M U2 M (16)

Also you use:
M' U R U R' U' M' U R U' Rw' M2 U M U2 M' U2 M2 U' M' U2 M U2 (23)
Why not:
M' U R U R' U' M' U R U' Rw' M2 U M' U2 M U M U2 M' U2 M2 (22)

that doesnt solve LSE for me tho

M' U R U R' U' M' U R U' Rw' M2 U M U2 M' U2 M2 U' M' U2 M U2 (23)
Why not:
M' U R U R' U' M' U R U' Rw' M2 U M' U2 M U M U2 M' U2 M2 (22)
oh yeah, right. im dumb

yeah, i was trying to keep the pair for the second block. but it looks like your solution is far better.

Woops I just realized I typed R instead of R' in my solution.

Why are you doing R-turns in LSE?

This is a really hard case, this is my second try (first one was 19):

M' U M' U' M U M' U M' //EO (9)
U' M' U2 M U M2 U // UL/UR (7)

because i once learnd that eo case as an OLL and i couldnt be arsed to do it intuitively

Why did you y2? Was it to avoid a B2? Is that really better? Y U Y2?! :confused:

It avoided the B and moved his first block to the left where I needs to be.
