Your natural instinct may be to use your right hand, which produces the first algorithm.

Xlgorithms don’t you give it a try – go to the timer pageset inspection time to 15 seconds and see if you can produce a solution to the cross entirely in your head. Move on to the next sections, but keep starting with the cross on the bottom. The red-blue F2L pair is used in all of these diagrams so the sticker that is hidden would be either red or blue, depending on which sticker is shown.

If the desired corner or edge pieces are not in the U layer, then they’ll need to be brought up before these cases can be applied. If both L an R slices are still free it’s fairly easy to temporarily ‘store’ a block in one side while dealing with the other. Not logged in Create account Log in. It is the greatest oak that has the strongest roots, and you’ll grow your roots using the beginner’s guide. Speedsolving request an alg thread: COLL and CLL both mean different things to other cubers, and sticking to convention makes things a lot easier for everyone involved.

Alo you need to swap opposite edges, you can use this algorithm:. It does take time to get used to, and it doesn’t really matter how long you alforithms when you’re practising. There are five such f2o that you should learn the algorithmic solution for, and they’re all in this nice little table:. Algorithm simply repeat these steps for each of the four corners, and solve each F2L pair in turn.


Building the block involves first building a 1x1x2 block with the corner and one edge piece. The cases described below are designed to help you gain that intuition. This guide takes you fl2 every step of algkrithms CFOP speedcubing method.

For each case, there will be a “method” how to convert it to one of the basic cases and an “algorithm” in with a bullet in front of it. That’s called 2-look PLL. Try practising going from a scrambled cube to completed F2L very slowly, and making sure you have a continuous steady flow. Don’t start by learning those algorithms. It’s all very well and good being able to perform algorithms quickly, but perhaps the most important thing with F2L is to perform the algorithms continuously.

Now insert the pair into its slot. Case 1 Basic Cases. Although the idea of slowing down in order to speed up may be counter-intuitive, a useful al, is to practise F2L at an exaggeratedly slow speed. Ksolve lets you create algs for everything else.

I know, I know, I said that F2L should be solved intuitivelyand that you shouldn’t rely on a big table of algorithms. The second option is this algorithm:. If you can intuitively solve every F2L situation algoritgms come across then jolly well done, but there are a few cases where there is just a better, faster, much less obvious algorithm to solve it.

Once the first 1x1x2 block is built, it is connected with the third edge in the mid-slice. Start using the algorithms page to learn each of the PLL algorithms. This is a fantastic resource for beginners. How to Solve the Rubik’s Cube. How to learn algs faster: Turning the whole cube in your hands is a slow waste of time.

This completes the cube, which you probably know looks like this:. Corner Bottom, Edge Middle Adv: I have found that the next step F2L is a huge help for people to understand how to move cubies to where they want them, a skill that they can later use when returning to the cross. Don’t worry if you struggle! Don’t forget to align the centers pieces of the cube!


If you used the second algorithm instead, then the same thing happens to red-blue corner and edge pieces, but now the red-green pieces are much happier and are in a position to be solved much more easily.

The goal of many F2L algorithms is to get the corner and edge into this case and then solve them with this trigger. In most cases those algorithms are simply the intuitive pair-and-insert procedure optimized with moves such as x, y, d, etc.

R U’ R’ U2. After solving the cross, a corner-edge pair is paired up form pairand then inserted into the correct slot pair insertion. An intuitive way of thinking about this situation might produce something like the first algorithm, as it follows the usual principles of pairing the edge and corner piece and inserting them together. The idea of F2L is to pair each of the four bottom layer corners with the corresponding edge piece and then insert them into the correct place.

If you perform each algorithm as quickly as humanly possible, you don’t leave yourself much time to analyse the cube and isolate the next corner-edge pair you want to solve.

Just winter variation algs from the back. For example, here are two ways of pairing the corner and edge pieces:.

F2L – The First Two Layers – ZZ Method Tutorial

There are, however, a few situations you might find yourself in where this procedure is not quite so obvious. One way of doing this is to break up these two pieces and twist the corner so that the two pieces are opposite each other and then placing them.

Retrieved from ” https: Instead, a simple U’ before the algorithm means that when you then pair the red-blue corner and edge piece, you avoid affecting the blue-orange pair.
