```Hi Mike,

I use 2 tricks which I now see simultaneously, but this didnt come
with lots of practice!```
```
First I locate the only connected pair of stickers around the side
of the top layer. At the same time, I look around the other side to
see whether the two stickers around the corner are adjacent to one
another, or opposite to one another (or you could say I identify it
as one of C/A C/O O/C or A/C). This is enough to determine the
permutation.

With a bit of practice you will get the hang of seeing whether it is
a "left hand" G, or a "right hand" G. So now you've broken it into
two possibilities. Next you use the opposite or adjacent trick to
identify which of the 2 it is, and once you know this you then know
exactly where to hold the block of two connected stickers. It seems
a lot when I explain it all but it really is a split second decision!

For my algorithms I have a different starting point for each one, so
it makes the algs a little less similar than they otherwise could be.

So if it was a left hand G, and the stickers were opposite, I hold
the two connected stickers at LFU and LU. If they were opposite,
then I hold the stickers at FU and FRU

If it was a right hand G, and stickers are opposites, then they go
at RFU and RU. And if adjacent, then they go at BRU and BU.

Remember that the first letter in the three letter sticker code
denotes the face the sticker is on :)

Hope this helps a bit!
