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 

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!

Dan :)
