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.

The popularity of the method dates from December when Josef Jelinek added Ortega’s Corners First method as a solution for 3x3x3 cubes to his website.

I recommend replacing the stickers with the proper colours from Cubesmith.

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. Hey everybody, I just remade my webpage and moved it over to its own domain.

Even though two layers are being permuted at once, though, solvers conventionally refer to the steps as simply CP and EP.

This led to Chris creating a video to rename the Ortega method to the Varasano method.

It suffers from the same annoyance of having pink opposite red instead of orange which can cause problems wih colour recognition. You do not need to solve a layer–just the face.


The mid-layer edges are then oriented during placement of the final U-layer edge, and finally the mid-layer edges are permuted. PBL In the third and final step, you’ll permute both layers. The Ortega Method is an intermediate 2×2 method. For two of them, you can use PLLs that work on the 3×3.

It is more efficient than 22×2 a 3×3 method but not as advanced as methods like CLL or EG that require a large number of algorithms. Speedsolving The Ortega Methodalso known as the Varasano Methodis a 2×2 and 3×3 speedsolving method.

The Ortega Methodalso known as the Varasano Methodis a 2×2 and 3×3 speedsolving method. Chuberchuckee Member Apr 14, A third case is only three moves long.

The method is broken into three steps. Feel free to copy them, change them, whatever you like! However, the naming change did not stick and the majority ortwga call it “Ortega”, although “Varasano-Ortega” is sometimes used.

This would have been useful a few months ago, because I had to turn on my computer just to 2x22x to a few algorithms that I just can’t memorize.

Retrieved from ” https: The two cubes sharing a corner made this a bit too fiddly to get serious with so I decided to wait ’til Xmas! AndyK Premium Member Apr 14, Using Ortega as a 3x3x3 method involves first solving the corners completely, followed by insertion of the D layer edgesand 3 of the U-layer edges.

A fascinating mechanism – there are only corner cubies! Any ideas for that? In terms of the overall level of breitling replica sophistication, compared with movement chronometer certification COSC precision timepieces than twice.


In total, there are 12 algorithms to learn 11 without reflections. Lol, sounds like those useless facts in advertisements.

The 3×3 is sadly not really useful for me any more, but irtega printable beginners method will be useful so I don’t have to teach people!

Wow, first post and already contributing so much to the speedcubing community!

His was a Corners-first method similar to the method used by Minh Thai to win the World Championship 22xx2 only 2 layers it takes the form of:
