Jessica Fridrich Distinguished Professor , Fax: () URL: E-MAIL: fridrich (AT) binghamton. edu. Richard can solve the cube blindfolded and willingly shares with us his method. I met Richard in April and he showed me his incredible skills in person. The Fridrich method or the CFOP method (cross, F2L, OLL, PLL) is a fast method for solving the Rubik’s Cube created by Jessica Fridrich. It consists of four.

Solve the first two layers at once. First a so-called “cross” is made on the first layer, consisting of the center piece and four edges.

You want to learn the Fridrich but do you own a decent cube? The first two layers F2L 4 Step 3 of Fridrich method: The second round time of This differs from case 2 only by the orientation of the edge blue is up, not orange.

But doing it with your left hand will be quicker! We just need to solve the remaining edges and the cube will be solved. This case will be solved in two steps.

Here are the magic algorithms:. You are now ready to be a speedcuber with your knowledge of the Fridrich method. Sometimes, it is easier to first build the pair and jesssica insert it.

They are the only ones and the best way to solve them is not really instinctive. Now insert the pair into its slot. If we consider the first two layers as solved intuitively, there is in total 78 algorithms to learn to solve the last layer: Or the two corners are next to each other and the yellow is on the side.

Y ou would have a full visibility on all the unsolved pairs. The OLL skip is the position where all the last layer is already oriented without performing any algorithm. Fridrich won the first and second rounds and Goljan won the last third round. This will allow you to focus on the next step, F2L while doing the cross.


Three different cases can happen here. I would jessicca advice you to solve the cross on the bottom layer from the beginning. Not turning the cube on this special case saves you about seconds.

This meant that the cubes favoured competitors using systems with fewer moves. The basic idea of the first 2 layers is to pair the edge and the corner. This is the fastest and the easiest Rubik’s cube solving method.

This is probably the hardest part of the Fridrich method. That is a great first goal and will help you to solve the Rubik’s cube under 20 seconds.

If you don’t, you may break other pairs that have been already built before. More precisely, every time you solve a corner, just associate the corresponding edge and solve both at the same time. I would recommend you to start with the formulas that orient 3 cornersbecause they are easy and you know them already.

Have a look at the following case:. Ejssica you can do any cross blindfolded, you will be able to focus on the first pair while solving the cross. The first layer corners and edges of the second layer are put into their correct positions simultaneously four pairs.

Method inventors Speedcubers Cubers. Retrieved April 19, She invented it at the end of the s. There are here two different cases. It has to be maximum once per pair, ideally just once or twice during the whole solve of the F2L.

Take your time and try to anticipate. The last layer is solved by first orienting and then permuting the last layer cubies using a large number of algorithms. When the cross is prepared a half turn to the solved position, it is particularly easy because all you need is to fridrihc on opposite colors. The national championship took place in May by which time Fridrich was averaging about 25 seconds.

I would advice you to get one of those, best speed cubes on Amazon. Length moves will appear here Algorithm. With a bit of practice, you left and right hands can solve cases equally as fast.

But if you want to solve the cube under 20 seconds, that’s a very important step. Thankfully, you do not need to learn everything at once and each of metthod two steps can be separated in two sub-steps. First, the”cross” is made on the first layer, consisting jeesica the center piece and four edges.

Once you are at that level, you should be able to solve every cross in under 1. From these 3 cases, you should be able to deduce the entire solve. To find the pattern on the corners, just focus on the side colors of the corners. Every PLL formula has a name based on a letter. If on one face the two corners have the same color, then they can be considered as solved and the other two will methov to be permuted.
