## How long will it take to learn f2l?

It takes 1 month to fully understand this method. Once you get the heck of it you start to learn and discover new intuitive moves and how it actually works.

**Is intuitive f2l faster?**

Member. Intuitive F2L is slower when you’re first learning, but after a couple of weeks your fingers will get used to the different cases and it will become much faster, even without the algs for the difficult cases.

**Why am I slow at F2L?**

Member. It takes the typical person about a month, practicing 1-2 hours a day, to get f2l down to where you feel better at it than with your beginner method. From there you just gotta continue to practice at least 1-2 hours every day and you’ll work your way down. At some point you will decide to learn 2-look oll/pll.

### How many moves should f2l take?

F2L should be around 6 moves for cross, and then 7-8 moves per pair. So thats about 36 on average, so you are not doing too bad. The most important thing with f2l is your lookahead, try turning a bit slower and putting all of your effort into trying to find your next pair. It’s hard at first, but really pays off later.

**Why do I get stuck with the Rubik’s cube second layer?**

Until this point we could work intuitively without any algorithm to memorize, but in this stage when we’re solving the second layer (first two layers – F2L) of the Rubik’s Cube people usually get stuck because there are too many moves to foresee in order to complete this step.

**What is the beginner’s method for solving Rubik’s cube?**

A Rubik’s Cube algorithm presented in the Beginner’s method is U R U’ L’ U R’ U’ L, used to cycle the three corner pieces on the upper layer, when the first two layers (F2L) are solved. Every algorithm or permutation has a degree which is a finite number that shows how many times we have to execute the operation to return to the initial state.

#### How many F2L algorithms are there?

F2L Algorithms Page. There are 41 different variations for solving the corner-edge pieces in the F2L step. Many of these cases are very similar to each other (mirrors) and therefore use similar solutions. The variations are divided into groups according to where the corner & edge pieces are located in the Rubik’s cube.

**How many layers of the Rubik’s cube are solved simultaneously?**

The first two layers (F2L) of the Rubik’s Cube are solved simultaneously rather than individually, reducing the solve time considerably.
