Hi, yesterday I found a nice algorithm for a PLL case (the Y case in Fridrich's web). I have been loking for this algorith in several webs but I haven't found it. The algorith is the following one:

(U') B' R B R' U' R' U R2 U R' U' R' F R F'

Using two layers twist (first you have to rotate the cube for put the face B in U):

U' R U l' U' R' U R2 U R' U' l' U R U'

You can see this movements using a applet in my forum:

I'd like to know if somebody had seen this algorithm before. I think that it is very good.

Note: Observe that I am applying two OLL algortihms but it is different to this one (the number of movements is different):

F R U' R' U' R U R'- F' R U R' U'- R' F R F'

I love it!
I've always wondered why the T was move-cancel engineered, but the Y (I used to call it Psi) wasn't.
Apparently, it's possible.

I always adjust the U-face before PLL, so this could save me even more moves; I'll probably start using it.

Well, it is not important, you can adjust the U-face after or before PLL, the number of movements is the same ;)

I made up my own for that case. (Amongst others)

(R' U L') U2 (R U' L) d' (L U' R) U2 (L' U R')

Swapping UFL-UBR / UL-UF
