Russo is a method proposed by Anthony Russo in 2019. Russo is similar to Roux in the fact it is a blockbuilding method, but not similar in the way it solves BD edge, resulting in the final step only solving the last 5 edges instead of the last six.
Steps
1. Build the First 2 Layers without the FD cross edge.
2. Orient and Permute the Last Layer corners.
3a. Orient the remaining 5 edges. This step is done intuitively.
3b. Solve the last 5 edges is one algorithm.
Pros
 Like the Roux and Petrus methods, it is a blockbuilding method, has a lower move count than the CFOP method.
 CLLs are the fast OLLCPs from CFOP
Cons
 Blockbuilding can be hard for a beginner to understand
 If a M move is left out, it could result in a DNF
 Depending on how blockbuilding is done, and the final step, Mslices are used a lot, which makes it harder for higher layer puzzles and OH solving.
Possible Improvements
 Arrow  Instead of blockbuilding the first 2 layers, solve an arrow on the bottom layer without the DF edge, then do F2L. This could increase TPS and better lookahead
