>From my PLL page: Cycling Three Corners & Three Edges Though these look the trickiest to recognize, they are actually quite simple. I first AUF to solve the 1x1x2 block. Then, I rotate the cube such that the two corners that share the same color on the same face are on the left side. Then, based on whether the block is at the back, front, far part of the right, or close part of the right, I know whether to apply #14, #15, #16, or #17, respectively.

14 2.233 (R2' u' R U') (R U R' u R2) y (R U' R') This is fairly easy to perform at high speeds, even though it looks the most confusing. Algorithms #14-#17 are all performed somewhat similarly because they have some overlapping moves. 15 1.867 (R2' u) (R' U R' U' R u') R2' y' (R' U R) Ron showed me a nice modification to this algorithm to make it flow a lot nicer. It is quite easy to perform with a little practice. 16 2.567 (R' U' R) y (R2' u R' U) (R U' R u' R2') This is the inverse of #15. Note how similar they look. I perform this one almost exactly the same way. 17 2.100 (R U R') y' (R2' u' R U') (R' U R' u R2) This is just the inverse of #14. I execute it very similarly because most of the moves overlap in the same manner. ~ Bob --- In zbmethod@yahoogroups.com, "Mike Bennett" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > --- In zbmethod@yahoogroups.com, "Doug Lee" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > > That took me a few reads to understand, so allow me to explain > > another approach to this problem. > > > > I use this method and I believe many other PLL users also do.
