Using Ortega as a 2x2x2 method first involves solving one face intuitively; don’t worry about solving an entire layer, because. Specifically, the Ortega method and the Guimond method, perhaps the two most popular advanced 2x2x2 methods, both finish with a PBL step.

I think I got most of these algorithms from Erik’s 2x2x2 pages – they seem to be down at odtega moment as he rebuilds his site: I received a white EastSheen 2x2x2 from puzl.

If you are not color neutral for solving the 2×2, you should make it a priority. The method is broken into three steps. Face 1 The first step is to just solve any face. Page actions View View source History More.

PBL – Wiki

I’m terrible with algorithms so my 2x2x2 technique is a simplified 3x3x3 layer-by-layer method. Too bad 2x2x more or less quit cubing. Even though two layers are being permuted at once, though, solvers conventionally refer to the steps as simply CP and EP.


TecSpy — Michael Erskine’s home domain. You can check them out below or you can go to my website: The mid-layer edges are then oriented during placement of the final U-layer edge, and finally the mid-layer edges are permuted.

In total, there are 12 algorithms to learn 11 without reflections. The first two algorithms Y perm and A perm only affect the top layer, and because of that, they can be used in LBL methods. If you can already orient corners in one step on the 3×3, you will already have an alg for this step, but since you can ignore edges and centers there are nonewe can use some shorter algs than usual.

However, the naming change did not stick and the majority still call it “Ortega”, although “Varasano-Ortega” is sometimes ogtega.

The Ortega Methodalso known as the Varasano Methodis a 2×2 and 3×3 speedsolving method. In terms of the 22×2 level of breitling replica sophistication, compared with movement chronometer certification COSC precision timepieces than twice.


DcF Member Apr 14, It is actually possible, in theory, to do PBL in one step for 3x3x3 or Square-1 – in this case we would be permuting not only corners but the whole layers. Learning to solve the 2×2 using the Ortega method requires very few algorithms and you probably already know most of them. The case shown in the picture in the method information box is known as Suneone of the OLL cases.

Ortega Method

The 3×3 is sadly not really useful for me any more, orfega the printable beginners method will be useful so I don’t have to teach people! The thing is, his lines are parallel for the two opposite edge switcher.

Victor Ortega is often credited for creating the method.

It suffers from the same annoyance of having pink opposite red instead of orange which can cause problems wih colour recognition. It is a great method if you’re looking to improve your ogtega times. Lol, sounds like those useless facts in advertisements.
