About This Class

      In this course, I will teach you the 6th set of OLL's. This is a continuation of a previously recorded course. I will be making more courses in order to cover all OLL cases so don't forget to follow me for future content. Here I will only be covering 8 OLL's out of the 57 available. Because 57 is such a daunting number, I decided to piece it up into multiple courses so those of you which are learning OLL's can digest the myriad of algorithms more easily. As long as you stick to this course, the previous ones, and the ones to follow, you will hopefully learn full OLL faster than you think and with highly efficient algorithms.

1. Introduction: What's going on, guys, my name is Byron and welcome to the sixth set of all else. Real quick before we get started, let me just give you guys a little bit of a background about myself. I've been solving Rubik's Cube since 2008 competitively. I've entered two competitions, one in Arizona and one in Las Vegas. And I have been a tutor for higher as well. During my years solving cubes, I've taught well over 300 people how to solve various types of twisty puzzles. If you guys have been keeping up with videos, I've been putting out, this is kind of an extension of a road to full OLS series that I'm putting together. I'm going to be covering a bunch of different alleles, but I'm not going to throw them all at you at once. This one's going to be specifically covering a lot of the little lightning bolt signs, as well as some of the big L 1s or what they call the knight move shapes. The algorithms are gonna be showing you guys here are the same ones that I use when I go to competition with optimized finger tricks and a very easy to follow setup. I'll be showing you guys the cube notation, the finger tricks involved, as well as the most up-to-date efficient algorithms I can get my hands on. And I think you guys are really going to enjoy this course, is going to have a ton of useful information in here for you. So with that being said, let's get started. 2. OLL #7 & #12: So the first four I'm gonna be showing you are going to have a similar shape to this right here. I like to call this a lightning bolt. But yet again, call it whichever way you'd like. This one is going to have to write here, two over here, and that's going to have one dot re back there. This is a relatively easy algorithm that does not require to regroup, which is fortunate. And it's going to start off just like this. You're going to hold it and this home Grip, you're gonna do a are what we're gonna do. A lowercase r, u, like that, which deal with your pointer finger are prime. You can either use this finger to do the you or you could use good le, left finger to do the push for the u. Either one works. Are u2, lowercase r prime. So not too bad, very quick, and can be done regret plus. I actually like this one a lot because anytime I see it, I know it's just a really, really fast algorithm. So done quickly. It looks like this. So this one will kinda look similar. You know, these, all four of these ones I'm gonna be showing you guys are going to look kind of similar. But you're gonna have that same little lightning bolt except instead of two here. This time you only have one. The T2 has actually moved over to the side. And then of course you're gonna have your dot here and your dot there. Now this one is ridiculous yet again, this is another really good algorithm. However, the finger tricks involved you may not be familiar with that first, but let's just see how it goes. So you're going to start off by holding and just like this, we're gonna do a are like a lowercase r and then an R2. We're going to keep holding it like this. Or I can go straight into a u prime, u prime, r prime, u2, r u prime are, and then you're going to grab this center layer and bring it down for a lowercase r prime. So seems like a lot, but it's actually not bad, is pretty fluid. It's not my fastest all L, but it is the one that I find to be pretty easy to do and done quickly. It looks like this. 3. OLL #8 & #11 : All right, now this time lightning bolts going to be on the other side. You're gonna have the two here and you're gonna have to here. So this one, you're actually going to hold over here just like this. There is a regroup involved with this one, at least the way I like to do it. But it does seem to pan out pretty well because it is a pretty fast algorithm and is very easy to learn. So we're gonna start off here. Put your thumb on top. We're gonna do a lowercase, r prime, u prime, r prime, r prime. And you'll have these two fingers setup for a U2. And then you're going to basically use your ring finger back here to just lift that lowercase r. So not too bad. One of the easiest ones you're probably going to learn in this entire set. Now done quickly, it looks like this. So this one is not too bad. It's gonna seem kinda complicated at first, but once you get it down, it flows very well. So you're gonna start off here and we're going to hold it like this. The lightning bolt just like that too in the back. And you have dot, dot, dot, just like that. So this one's going to start off just like this. We're gonna do a lowercase r prime. And then we're gonna do a R2. And we're gonna set up for a u here. And then we're going to bring the right side down for an r prime, setting up for another you. Then we're gonna do a R and we're going to have these two yellow bars. We're going to bring this F20 pair all the way back. So we're gonna do a U2. Then as we bring this white side down, we're going to line up the center like this. And then you can either do the M or you can do what I like to do. And at the same time that I line up this one where the u, i come down with a R prime and I pick up both layers and come back with a lowercase r. Now it sounded a little confusing because it was, it was kinda all over the place, but I'll go over it again. We're gonna start off just like this and do a lowercase, r prime, R2, u r prime. You are u2 r prime, u r prime. Pick up the layer for a lowercase r. And that's how you do that algorithm. It sounds like a lot, but it does flow well, just like a lot of the other ones in this set, but done quickly, it looks like this. 4. OLL #13 & #16 : Alright, so we're gonna get into the, what I call big L, all else. So it looks like just a big L. Now this one in particular, you're going to have two dots on the left, two dots on the right. We're going to hold it just like this. And this algorithm is going to be a little bit on the wonky side, but just follow along. Alright, so we're going to start off real quick. We're gonna be doing a regret. We're going to start by doing a lowercase l this time. And then we're gonna do a u-prime, r prime. We're gonna do an f prime and go straight into an r, u, r prime, u prime. And we're gonna do an F. And we're going to use a push right here for you. Now and everything is very, very fluid. It is not too difficult to learn for the most part, it is a lot of fun. And as long as you practice it, I have a feeling it's going to be one of your favorite algorithms. Now done quickly, it looks like this. So this is going to have a pretty cool algorithm. It's going to be starting off just like that. And you got your same long L as before. You're going to have to hear. And you have just dot, dot, dot. So not too bad. So we're going to start off just like this. And we're going to start by doing a lowercase r. And we're gonna have this pointer finger ready for a u. And another lowercase. We're gonna go lowercase r prime this time. And then we're going to basically do the same thing we just did, but with normal moves. So we're gonna do a are you are prime. And we're going to finish that off with a u prime. So that's a whole trigger. Then I'll lowercase r are going to bring this line right over here with a u prime. And then we're going to bring that down to the lowercase r prime. So it's kind of a repetitive algorithm. So it should be a little bit on the easier side to learn. So it's not too bad. But done fast. It looks like this. 5. OLL #14 & #15 : So this one is going to have a couple of interesting finger tricks. So we're going to have the same big L. And just so you guys know, these are also considered knight move. All else, this pattern of like a long bar with little dot next to it. So this is called a knight move. Basically all four of these. So you have two dots here, two dots there, a dot here. And then you've got your corner obviously sitting right there. So this one is easy algorithm but pretty finger trick intensive, I guess. So we're going to start off just like this. We're gonna do a r prime. Are you? We're gonna get our pointer finger ready here. We're gonna do an R prime. F prime. Are, use your pointer finger here. Get your pinky right there underneath the center. So that way you can use your pointer finger to do an f. You're gonna use this pointer finger for a u prime. And then you're going to pinch for your F prime. I know that seems kind of interesting, but I'll do it again for you so you can follow. So a r prime f r u. Now we're gonna do a r prime, f prime r. Remember it got your pinky. F u prime. F prime. So like I said, is a little finger trick intensive, but getting your pinky under the center is important. So that way when you're trying to do your movement, it's not going to move two layers. So that's just in order to keep it stable. That's really all it is. But it is pretty quick. I personally just learned these finger tricks not that long ago. So I'm still a little new to it, but I'm already able to pick it up kind of quickly. So done quickly. It looks like this. Or I, this is the last one of this set. This is another night move or long L, or big oil or whatever you want to call it. So we have a bar here, dot there. You're going to have a single dot here this time. And then in the back you're going to have those two side-by-side. So this one is going to be done in the back, right over here, at least what I would consider the back. And not too bad. It's actually a pretty fun algorithm, but we're going to start here. You're gonna do a r prime and you're gonna get your pointer finger ready to do an f prime. Are. And you're gonna do a l prime u, u for u prime, I'm sorry, L u. And now you're gonna take these and you're gonna do it r prime f r to complete the algorithm. So not too bad. And it just flows pretty well. Not, not a bad algorithm. Personally. I like this one a lot and it can't be done very quickly, although I'm not always the fastest added, but it is a very efficient algorithm, but done quickly. It looks like this. All right, you guys, that was it. That was the end of this course are in this set. And if you guys have been keeping up with the other ones I've been posting, I've been constantly putting out new videos and new sets so you guys can slowly learn full OL and make you guys just that much faster. But I hope you enjoyed the course. Don't forget to review this course. Let me know what you guys think I did good. What do you think I did bad? Maybe there's something you would want to add or any suggestions that you'd want to make in order to make your experience a little bit better. But it's been a pleasure making the course. Go ahead and follow me so that way you guys can see the new videos I'm gonna be posting. So you can stay on top of things and hopefully get faster by the end of it. But I'll see you guys in the next course. Good job.
