TCLL or Twisty Corners of Last Layer is an advanced 2x2 method proposed in 2013 by Robert Yau and Chris Olson based off a study into RoFL (ROtten First Layer) by Stefan Pochmann. It is efficient and is very good for those who can 1-look their 2x2 solves and cancel into algorithms. It can be divided into 3 subsets: regular CLL, TCLL- (where the misoriented corner in DR faces to the right) and TCLL+ (where the corner faces to the front). There are 43 algorithms for each TCLL set and 40 for the CLL.

## Steps

1. Solve a layer (one corner can be twisted in place)
2. TCLL

## Pros

• Can easily be 1-looked in almost all cases fairly easily.
• Lots of cancellations can be formed between the layer and the algorithm
• Building a layer with a twisted corner is much shorter than building a full layer
• Can have ridiculously easy solves

## Cons

• It is not generally recommended to use TCLL as a stand alone method
• Beginners may find it difficult to 1-look solves and take advantage of the cancellations
• Approximately 2 Times more algorithms than CLL, EG-1 or EG-2
