I was once a user of the Petrus method... people laughed at me, because "Fridrich is much faster"...

well, when trying to make some vids of me solving for the first time, i realized how slow i was at the petrus, and i tried something new.

it seems every time i use the fridrich F2L, i have trouble not breaking the cross. so what i do now is put three edges in place, that way i have an entire slice as "working space". this method is working out really well, as i just got a new average of 50.8 seconds with it. three of the times in the average were even sub-50 :D



i call this method of mine the 2 step Fridrich F2L.


does anyone else do anything similar to this? and if not, could somebody try it and tell me what they think? i think the working space of mine is really useful for getting together C/E pairs.

I personally do not do this, but I think that there, in fact, many people that do this.

Quote:
First of all, do not sweat the cross. If you can do 3 edges and cannot figure out all 4, do just three and then, as you are inserting them, look for the fourth one.


That was a quote from Jessica Fridrich's page.
