F2L Algorithms (First 2 Layers). Developed by Feliks Zemdegs and Andy Klise. Images sourced from Conrad Rider’s VisualCube. This algorithm sheet has some more algorithms for F2L. These algorithms/cases are picked because they are rotationless, short and easy to learn, but also. F2L Algorithms – All Four Slot Angles. Developed by Feliks Zemdegs and Andy Klise.

Drew’s WO and Nutella algs: If you do RU2R’, you can turn this into case 3. 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. 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. This is not the place for customer support with cube stores, please use private messages instead.

You can also order the table by trigger, which I think is much more conducive to memorisation.

Ignore the algorithm if you are just learning F2L. Log in or sign up in seconds. How to learn algs faster: Much algoritjms the Sexy Move highlighted in red before, the sequence R’ F R F’ is a trigger called the Sledgehammer, and you’ll spot it lurking about in other places and algorithms. If you used the second algorithm algorthms, 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.

If you spot an error, please contact me. It can be quite difficult certainly so if you’ve only just started doing it upside down but with practice it will become very easy to isolate only the four edge pieces you need and formulate a basic plan to get them into a cross.


Twisty Puzzles Online Stores International. If you have any questions still, I’m happy to help! You should do it on the bottom because then it’s easier to locate the other pieces.

Ah yes they’re less intuitive, but often less moves? Titles need to be relevant to your post in a meaningful way. Very nice resource for mega LL.

COLL and CLL both mean different things to other cubers, and sticking to convention makes things a lot easier for everyone involved. Edge Middle Case 6: Don’t forget to align the centers pieces of the cube! The advanced F2L algorithms tend to make it so you don’t have to do a cube rotation. Make sure that the colours of the other stickers on the edges are in this order: RLS 0 edges doc: Well here is where your journey begins.

Try to also remember that you probably have two hands. Please check our wiki to see if your question already has an answer. In most cases those algorithms are simply the intuitive pair-and-insert procedure optimized with moves such as x, y, d, etc. They are there so you can see an optimal way to solve each case, but try to not rely on them for every single F2L case you encounter.

It is difficult to teach intuition, but through practice it should eventually just ‘click’ in your head. Not logged in Create account Log in.

Corner Correct, Edge Not Placed In these cases, the corner is already solved and only the edge needs to be placed. This is one of the least intuitive cases for the F2L.

Where To Buy Cubes? This is very similar to a working corner method, but you place the corner using a free edge slot instead.

First Two Layers

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 be paying much attention to official WCA competition rules, but it does give you something to aim for. It fits exactly where I am in my learning process. The moves are based solely on intuition, so algorithms are not required. What’s even better is that these few algorithms are used in the full CFOP method anyway, so we’re not wasting any time!


First, AUF to “match” the edge piece with a center, then move the corner to match the edge using the free slot, and place the block in its slot. Diagram Algorithm Comments 01 FR: AUF again and place the block in the slot it belongs.

However, many other sites do have so-called “algorithms” for this step.

I have gone through each of these situations and chosen algorithms that I think are easy to both perform and learn, but you may feel differently. Not having to turn the cube over after completing the cross on the top layer saves a lot of time, and it also means that you can be looking for the pieces for the next step whilst completing the cross on the bottom. The first approach involves taking each edge piece, putting it above where it needs to go, and turning the appropriate face twice to place the piece on the bottom layer.
