First Two Layers, or F2L are normally the first two bottom layers of the 3x3x3 Youtube: How to get faster at the 3×3 Rubik’s cube – F2L – by Feliks Zemdegs. We have to learn two algorithms which are symmetric to each other. We call them Left and Right algorithms. Learn how to solve the Rubik’s Cube with this simple and easy to follow F2L ( First 2 Layers) is a way of continuing after solving the cross.

Both Top Type 1 Case 3: After solving the cross, a corner-edge pair is paired up form pairand then inserted into the correct slot pair insertion. This idea does not mean that the previous advice of how to perform the algorithms is redundant.

To this end, the vast majority of the algorithms on this page are comprised of many Rs and Us, as they are easy to perform sorry lefties. Once you have it set up like this, hold the white piece at the side ff2l look at the colour rubiik the front side.

Wasting time is bad. Algorithm helper Toggle algorithm helper. After that, you turn F’ again, to restore the cross. Just like with the happy red-green pieces before, sometimes you will come to an F2L situation that you’ve solved many times, but solve it in a different way because you want to set up the next F2L pair for easy solving.

Have a go on your cube, fl see if you can work out how to solve any of the pairs. This step of the cube should be done intuitively, even though there are algorithms for each case, algorithms should only be used for slower cases. That’s called 2-look PLL. I have not had time to make sure rjbik these moves are correct.

You simply repeat these steps for each of the four corners, and solve each F2L pair in turn. It’s ok, no one has to know. When you have only one piece in the upper layer, the best thing you can usually do is doing the same as explained above to deal with the white on top situation. You needn’t go through the steps in order – you can learn and practise each bit independently, falling back on the beginner method as and when you need it.


Instead, really try and solve each case intuitively. But what is life without a bit of a challenge every now and then. This database is part of the rubii. This might seem like a trivial difference to you, but each little pause adds up, and when you’re trying to really push down your solve time every second counts. While this is also an excellent life tip, some situations are just better handled on a specific side of the cube. Again, these algorithm rubim arranged in what I think is a sensible order but you are free to learn them however you please.

F2L can be a little difficult to get your head around. The edgepiece must be in UB. It’s quite an easy step, as it is essentially the same as step 4 from the beginner guidewhich is to get a cross on the top face. Speedsolvers mainly use intuitive F2L, since you do not have to learn any algorithms at all.

Case 1 Basic Cases. 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 put what I t2l are the easier ones first.

You can also order the table by trigger, which I think is much more conducive to memorisation. Contents [ show ]. Intuitive is solving the first two layers by intuition instead of algorithms. If you need to swap opposite edges, you can use this algorithm:.

First Two Layers (F2L) of Fridrich Speedcubing Method – Wiki

You will have to rely on them in practically every solve until you learn rubiik other OLL and PLL algorithm, which will take you some time and effort. Ruik to save the cornerpiece R to bring up the eventual place of the edgepiece U’ to get the edgepiece in that place R’ to bring the edgepiece down D’ to get tubik cornerpiece back.

I would recommend that you keep using the 2-look algorithms until you feel confident with most of this speedcubing guide. But you could also place rubij white-red piece by doing this:. Fubik means that doing the cross on the bottom is difficult, as they have come to rely on algorithms for situations that are suddenly upside-down. Instead, the pieces that do get affected are ones you don’t care about, as they were occupying the space that you want to put the red-blue pair into. Wiki tools Special pages.


Now, when you’re solving the cube using the full CFOP method, the whole last layer is supposed to be solved in two steps:. All of that being said, I can give you some situations to hopefully make the process easier. All these categories have subcatogories, shown below. When done at full speed, F2L can be completed in less than 10 seconds!

So instead of producing the cross by finding each white edge piece and solving them one by one, what you actually want to be doing is solving each piece at the same time in an efficient way. Edge Middle Case 6: Because it was taken already, that’s why. Case 4 Corner on Bottom, Edge on Top. This will correctly permute one of the edges, allowing you to solve the ruubik with one more use of the above algorithms.

SpeedsolvingF2k Previous state: 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. It does take time to get used to, and it doesn’t really matter how long you take when you’re practising.

First Two Layers

A trigger is simply a sequence of moves that is easy to perform very quickly, and the Rubij Move trigger comes up a lot. If you are thinking “how the dickens is anyone supposed to do this in 4. U2 R U2 R’. Of course, when you’re just sat at home on a lazy Sunday idling the afternoon away with a Rubik’s Cube you likely won’t rubjk paying much attention to official WCA competition rules, but it does give you something to aim for.
