ZZ-Blah algorithms

Hello,
ZZ-blah is a variation of ZZ proposed by Chester Lian in which the last-layer corners are
disoriented during insertion of the last F2L block to reduce the last layer to only the pi
and H cases. Because it can only give two OLL cases, the last layer can be solved in
one look with 133 algorithms.

As there aren't any algorithms I decided to contact Liam Highducheck, after seeing this video:

With his algorithms I made this PDF

These ZZ-blah algorithms are developed by Liam Highducheck.

ZZ-blah isn't good. Please don't learn it, just learn ZBLL instead minus sunes. Forcing any set of ZBLL will always be suboptimal and you'll become used to seeing only one OCLL case aand you'll be used to forcing FR slot and you'll be used to doing certain algs before last slot. Instead learn T, U and L first then H and Pi from this doc: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-uwmZHf4vwJxFgeB3-TiF8MQ0RFSS30d5CUK96PoIwk/edit#gid=0

no one says its better, its just a way for 1lll with less algs

Would it be smart(for workup to ZZ-a) to learn some basic phasing then use ZZ-b, until you learn the rest of the algs for ZZ-a? You wouldn't commit to learning ZZ-b and learn all the advanced phasing, but simply use it as a stepping stone

It would be smart to not do anything but just learn ZBLL as you go and add the algs into your solve. ZZ-Blah is probably worse than that still. If you're doing ZZ and actually want to be good, you do straight ZBLL, no question (except for sunes and maybe Pi). So infact, doing Blah forces some of the worst ZBLLs.

Yeah its obviously worse but it isnt made to be better. its made for lazy people
