Rubiks Cube: A Set of Algorithms!

Screen Shot 2017-08-26 at 15.48.26

In February this year 2017, I completed the Rubik’s Cube for the 1st time using the ‘Layer by Layer’ Method aka The Beginner’s Method. I was delighted. As a teenager, in the 1980’s, I did not complete it. Recently, I managed to solve the cube in 1 minute 12 seconds, YEAH! 🙂

There are 2 sure fire ways to improve from here:
1 – Learn the Jessica Heinrich Method aka the CFOP method (Cross – F2L – OLL – PLL), which means learning to recognise 119 patterns and perform the associated algorithms to solve; and

[Info on 119 patterns]

41 patterns for F2L ‘First 2 Layers’ [6 cases]
57 patterns for OLL ‘Orientate Last Layer’ [14 cases]
21 patterns for PLL ‘Permutate Last Layer’ [13 cases]

2 – Learn fingering techniques which speed the movements of the cube.

Yesterday, with instruction, I completed the Cube 4 times with the CFOP method, the next level has started and I feel like a kid in an adventure!
(It is all down to practice now)

Now, ideally, if I was God like I could solve any pattern of the cube with a maximum of 20 moves! (20 is the God number for the cube)

And if u want to learn yourself, goto

Any tips from people who already know how to do it, very welcome! 🙂
