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.


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.

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
