Dan’s Cubing Cheat [Sheet] Site – F2L (First Two Layers) Algorithms – CFOP
The first algorithm does successfully pair the red-blue corner and edge pieces, but it also lifts out the blue-orange pair from its proper place, thereby undoing any hard work it took to put it there. As above, you might now need to turn the top layer to realign the corner pieces. L U L’ Here, the corner and edge are “opposite” each other and can be placed with a simple trigger.
To place the corner, you match the corner with the edge to form a block and place them both together. A website with L4E pyra algs. These are alo key concepts to learning lots of algs.
Being able to identify it easily will make algorithms that use it easier to learn, so whenever it is used in this guide it will be highlighted in red. It’s a user based website where you can create an account and submit algs.
Being able to recognise it and perform it without thinking will make the task of learning lots of algorithms much, much easier. I know, I know, I said that F2L should be solved intuitivelyand that you shouldn’t rely on a big table of algorithms.
F2L Algorithms Page
For most of these cases, I have broken the algorithms down into two stages: Again, these algorithm are arranged in what I think is a sensible order but algorihhms are free to learn them however you please.

Introduction Notation Step 1: In the first stage, you will be pairing up the corner and the edge and AUF so that they can be placed. Once the first 1x1x2 block is built, it is connected with the third edge in the mid-slice. PLL gets the same treatment, as we’ll be permuting the corners first and then the edges. The second option is this algorithm:. Top of the page. Case 1 Basic Cases. Because all edges are now oriented it is possible to complete this stage using just R, U and L f22l.
Compare these two algorithms:.
These miscellaneous techniques can help you improve your speed in the step. This is t2l of the least intuitive cases for the F2L. Because it was taken already, that’s why. Start using the algorithms page to learn each of the PLL algorithms. But just look at it.
How To Solve The Second Layer Of The Rubik’s Cube (F2L)
Going slowly isn’t better – algoritums faster is better, but you’ll get faster by going slower. Rather than relying on a big table of algorithms, F2L is best done intuitively. After algoriths the cross, a corner-edge pair is paired up form pairand then inserted into the correct slot pair insertion. In other languages Add links. The following tips are suggested for good ZZF2L lookahead:. But the second algorithm is considerably quicker to perform, as you don’t have to adjust your hand position at all.
This differs from case 2 only by the orientation of the edge blue is up, not orange. You can do this in whatever order you choose but I have arranged them in what I think is a sensible order to learn them – I have grouped similar algorithms, and sll what I think are the easier ones first.
Creating your own algs: Wasting time is bad.
If the required pieces are already in the U-layer, but connected incorrectly they’ll need to be algoriyhms before they can be solved. Through practice, your lookahead will improve to a point where you can perform every algorithm very quickly, but without losing the ability to know what you’re doing next.
The ultimate guide to FMC: However, if one of the slices is already c2l there is much less room to manipulate the completed blocks xlgorithms breaking them up. In most cases those algorithms are simply the intuitive pair-and-insert procedure optimized with moves such as x, y, d, etc. You aren’t slgorithms with people standing around for 2 minutes while you solve it because that guy at the office didn’t believe you.
If you are thinking “how the dickens is anyone supposed to do this in 4. Sarah’s website has LOTS of 3×3 resources. They don’t look scary at all, and there’s even some triggers in there that you’ve already seen! Edge Middle Case 6: I assure you that the rabbit hole goes even deeper than that, and every situation actually has multiple algorithms for your learning pleasure. Lots of people post their solutions here and have discussions about them.
Instead, the pieces that do get affected are ones you don’t care about, sll they were occupying the space that you want to put the red-blue pair into. The core blockbuilding techniques introduced above are the minimum requirement for completing F2L intuitively.
The cases described below are designed to help you gain that intuition. Very slow indeed, about seconds per quarter turn of a face. It simply solves each piece relative to each otherand then places them in one go.
