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.

It is named after Victor Ortegaand is mostly popular today for being an intermediate 2×2 solving method.

PBL In the third and final step, you’ll permute both layers. Recently I’ve been trying to improve my 2x2x2 times by using the Ortega Method. 2z2x2 is pretty easy to do and makes this step even more efficient.

JohnnyA Member Apr 14, Ortega method Information about the method Proposer s: I’m looking foward to sq. Face 1 The first step is to just solve any face. Lol, sounds like those useless facts in advertisements.

From the screen shots it looks like you put a whole lot of time and effort into making them. The method 2x2xx2 broken into three steps.

This is a tiny keychain of two 2x2x2 cubes that share a corner. AndyK Premium Member Apr 14, With only 2 layers it takes the form of: 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.

There are a bunch of new printable Rubik’s cube guides and quite a few updates to my old ones. Speedsolving The Ortega Methodalso known as the Varasano Methodis a 2×2 and 3×3 speedsolving method. This is the same step as on the 3×3 except there are only 8 cases. Kidstardust Member Apr 14, It’s not too hard to learn as it is basically the layer-by-layer method with one major shortcut and a few extra algorithms: Retrieved from ” https: Kit Clement Premium Member Apr 14, Not logged in Create account Log in.

Using Ortega as a 2x2x2 method first involves solving one face intuitively; don’t worry about solving an entire layerbecause the face will be permuted later.

Victor Ortega is often credited for creating the method. Neroflux Member Apr 14, It is actually possible, in theory, to do PBL in one step for 3x3x3 or Square-1 – in ortegaa case we would be permuting not only corners but the whole layers. The Ortega Method is an intermediate 2×2 method. TecSpy — Michael Erskine’s home domain.


I received a white EastSheen 2x2x2 from puzl. A fascinating mechanism – there are only corner cubies! It is more efficient than using a 3×3 method but not as advanced as methods like CLL or EG that require a large number of algorithms.

Chuberchuckee Member Apr 14, 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. There are only five distinct cases. DcF Member Apr 14, For the first face, without colour neutralitythe average move count in HTM is a surprisingly lrtega 3.

I recommend replacing the stickers with the proper colours from Cubesmith. While it is true that Victor popularized the method, he cannot be said to have created it, similar to the naming dispute with the CFOP method.
