2 opposite centers cube state -> Partial cross step -> 3 half centers cube state


The Partial cross step is the step between the 2 opposite centers cube state and the 3 half centers cube state.

Partial cross generally refers to the step in the Yau method, but can also refer to other methods which solve for 3 edges of the cross at once rather than all 4, including Yau5. It can also mean a half-completed cross with 2 edges solved, however, this is rare.
