About This Class

    In this course, I will teach you the 7th and last set of OLL's in my series. This is a continuation of  previously recorded courses. I have made more courses in order to cover all OLL cases so don't forget to take a look at my previous courses and follow me for future content. Here I will only be covering 12 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, 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 final set of OLS. For those that are new to my courses. Let me give you a brief history about myself. Like I said, my name is Byron and I've been solving Rubik's cubes on and off for about 11 or 12 years or so, I've entered to competitions. And I have been teaching well over 300 people how to solve Rubik's cubes have various different shapes and sizes. I've been a tutor for higher as well. This course is specifically targeting those that are looking to learn full 0.0.0. And for those of you that don't know what full LLL is or what oil is in general, it stands for orientation of the last layer. For instance, here I have a yellow pattern and an O L is going to solve that yellow pattern in just a few moves, allowing you to do a permutation on the side, which is PLL, which will be the last step. I will be teaching you guys the finger tricks and the algorithms that I use when I go to competition. Here I'm going to be teaching you the p cases, the eye cases, and the awkward shape cases. There's going to be 12 and total. So with that being said, let's get into it. 2. OLL's #44, #43, #32 & #31 : So this first one that we have going on is all l number 44. It's very easy to tell. You. See, it looks like you have a giant p right there, and then a whole bar on this side, one dot. And then you're going to hold it just like this. Whenever you run into this, you should be pretty happy. It's a pretty fast algorithm. So it's gonna be really, really simple. It's basically going to be the same algorithm that you use in order to go from the line to the cross when you're doing your last layer, except you're gonna do a fat move in the beginning and a fat move in the end. So it's going to look just like this. You're going to do a lowercase f. And just like that, we're gonna move both layers at same time. Are you R prime, U prime, lowercase f prime? And I'm just gonna do that pinch with your thumb. And that's how you end up ending it is a very fast algorithm. It's very, very easy. I think you guys are gonna like this one a lot. Done quickly. It looks like this. So this is going to be all 043. It's a pretty easy algorithm to learn, except it does require a little bit of an interesting finger trick that you may not have seen before. You're going to start by holding it just like this. It's going to look like a backwards p when it's aligned here. This is essentially the mirror of the last one that I taught you. You're going to start by doing a f prime with your thumb like that. Then you're gonna do a u-prime L prime u l. And then you're gonna pinch for the f with your left hand. This may come off as a little awkward at first, but just give it some practice. And I'm sure you'll come around to it quickly. It looks like this. So this is going to be old El 32. Oh, 32 is another p1. We have one more after this. But instead of a line, you're just going to have a dot on this side with two right there and one over there. To perform this one. I hold it just like this. And you're going to perform this algorithm. You're gonna start by doing a l u, f u prime. And this time you're going to push what that finger, L prime u l. And get ready here for your f. And then bring it up with an L prime. So not too bad of an algorithm has some interesting finger tricks. This is more of a left-handed algorithm, but from what I've seen, it seems to be the most efficient way to handle this case. So it may be awkward at first, but like I always say, practice, practice, practice, the speed will come in time and done quickly. It looks like this. So this is 0031. You have the design right here to hear this time. No bar, just a dot. And then of course you've got your dot over there. The typical way I am able to recognize this case as I see the shape and a dot up there and no line, that's basically how I'm able to identify it. This is going to be the mirror algorithm of the other case I just taught you. So it's going to be very similar. You just gonna do mainly the finger tricks with your right hand. So it's gonna start just like this. You're gonna do a R prime, U prime, f. You, and you're going to use this pointer finger to push for the u r, u prime, r prime. Use this pointer finger to do the f-prime and bring it up with an R. It's very, very smooth. Regroup lists and eat because it's kinda more primarily right-handed. It's going to be a little bit more fluid since left-handed algorithms, not everyone's a big fan of. So done quickly, it looks like this. 3. OLL's #51, #52, #56 & #55 : Alright, so this is o ALL 51. It's going to have a line to here, to there, and then headlights on the side. There's actually two algorithms for this. I'm going to show you. One that I typically do in another one that is considered better, But I am currently working on getting faster at it. So the first one I'm going to show you is the one that is significantly better apparently. And it requires that thumb finger trick in order to perform an F. And that's really the only creepy trick that is involved in this don't think creep diesel world for the word but you get what I'm saying. So we're gonna start just like this. And you're gonna be doing your thumb. You're gonna do a f u r u prime, r prime. Then you're going to repeat those moves. U r, u prime, r prime. And you're going to pinch for the f prime. It's done very, very quickly. But there is an alternative algorithm if you want. And fortunately, this one I just showed you does not require a regret, which is why it's considered better than the other option. The other option looks like this. So we still have the same shape. Instead of holding it like this. This time we're going to hold it like this. And maybe this is better. It'll probably cut down time instead of doing the U2 and then going into the algorithm, this one being from this position, does require regrouped, but it's up to you to decide if that's faster than doing the U2 and then using your thumb. So at the end of the day, it's good to know both cases just in case something just happens to be better for you. So starting off with this one, I'm gonna do a regrouped first. And we're gonna do a lower-case F, or do a R U, R prime, U prime. And we're just gonna repeat it again, R U, R prime U prime. Then we're going to pinch to layers for lowercase f prime. And that will complete that algorithm and done quickly, it looks like this. Now we're looking at O L 52 with 052, you have a line and then you have a line there. And then this one is all broken up in different directions. You're gonna hold it just like this with a line on the left. And you're going to start and I'm gonna show you an interesting finger trick. We're going to hold it just like this. We're going to start by doing a r prime thing and use your pointer finger here to push for an f prime. So that way you can set this finger up to do a u prime. Then this one's ready for an f. This will do another u-prime. And then you're gonna do a r, u, r prime. Ring finger drag for you and an R. So a couple of interesting finger tricks in that one. Now keep in mind, these finger tricks may be difficult when you're first learning. However, they are extremely beneficial in the future when you're learning other ELLs. So keep that in mind. You may not like them now, but you're gonna love them later. So force yourself to use them and you'll be happy in the end. This algorithm is something I've learned were somewhat recently. I have a different algorithm for this case, but I've been trying to optimize my algorithms to more efficient algorithms as I've been going through the times. So this one's still relatively new to me, but I'll show you as fast as I can do it currently quickly. It looks like this. Now this is all l number 56. It seems like it's all over the place and it is, but the algorithm is not as bad as you may think. You're gonna start off with just a line down the middle and nothing else on top. And then everything on the sides is all facing different directions except you're gonna have headlights here, had lights there. You can hold it pretty much here. Or you can hold it there, whichever one you prefer. We're going to start by doing a re grip unfortunately. But this does translate into a relatively quick algorithm. Now don't be intimidated by the size of the algorithm. This is a relatively easy case. So starting off with that regret, we're gonna do it lowercase R prime, U prime r, and little lowercase r. And I like to look at these two to keep track of for the rest of the algorithm. But basically we're going to do a repeat of this first sequence. We're going to do a u prime, r prime. You are. And we're just going to repeat that u prime, r prime, you are. And then we're going to do the same thing we did in the beginning of the algorithm, except this time we're going to do a U instead. So a lowercase r prime u and a lowercase r. I'm gonna go through with it with you one more time. So we're going to start by doing a lowercase r, u prime r, lowercase r. And this is going to set us up so we can do the next set, which is u prime r prime. You are and repeated again. U prime, r prime view are. And then we're going to basically redo what we did. We're going to put this white back where it belongs and fix what we did. So not too bad of an algorithm. Just takes a quick second for you to get the finger tricks down for it and then it'll flow really well. Now done quickly, it looks like this. Alright, so now we have a low 55. With old 55, you're going to have a line right there, nothing else on top. A solid bar here and a solid bar there. You have two different places that you can hold this. You can hold it from here, or you can hold it from here. Either way, just make sure you don't have it going away from you, like this towards you and away. So hand-to-hand. Now this one is probably my favorite algorithm to teach because it has so many different finger tricks that are great for training. It's regret plus, but it does have a lot of moves, so it's not the fastest one in the world, but it is fun to do once you get it down. And it's a great way to practice. So we're going to start off just like this and home Grip. We're gonna do a r prime, f. Are you are you prime R2? Get this finger ready for an f prime R2 again, u prime r prime, u r u r prime. So it seems really complicated. I'm gonna give you a little bit of a breakdown. So there's only, the only way I would say is that it's easy to learn. This one is on the tail end. You're going to have to figure out how to memorize the whole beginning of it. But because it flows so well, I don't think it'll be too much of a problem. So near the end, you're going to have this pin, this one back here. You're going to be doing in an R2. And basically you're going to move this one over there. I'm assuming you know F2 L for this. And then when you bring it back up, you have a three move insert for these two. So you're going to move the corner over here and I'm just going to do your three move insert for the final end, so we'll walk through it. But again, r prime f r u r u prime, R2, f prime R2 u prime. And I watch it. Three move insert. We're just going to insert those. So not too bad, but like I said, it's a great training eight. And I highly recommend that you practice this algorithm because it will really help you with finger tricks for other algorithms. So keep that in mind and done quickly. It looks like this. 4. OLL's #41, #30, #42 & #29 : Now this is all l number 41. This is one of the awkward shape O alleles that I'm about to show you. So it looks like a chair, almost a little dot there. And then everything else is pretty much all over the place. But the way I like to look at these as look at the chair and then see that there's headlights in the back. So that will be a good indicator for you here. And notice that you only see dots there. So these ones are going to be kind of hard to differentiate when you're first learning because they all look so similar, but enough practice and you'll start to differentiate. So before I teach you the algorithm for this, I'm going to make it easier on you. And I'm going to show you the two different algorithms that make up this algorithm that you should already know at this point. So let's start with the first one. The soon algorithm goes just like this, holding it with a dot there and this fish looking shape facing towards your left hand. There's like that. It's going to be our u r prime. You are u2 r prime. You should already know that one. That is the first step of this algorithm is that entire algorithm. Now, let me show you the next step. Now when you're going for the backwards l, going to the line, like in beginners method. You hold it like this. And then you perform the algorithm f r u r prime, u prime, f prime. And that gets you to the line. And then you perform the algorithm again. And that gets you to your across a being an oldest was by coincidence. So that f RU R prime U prime, f prime is the other part of the algorithm in order to do this case. So they're very, very simple, basic algorithms that you should most likely already know. And all you have to do is combine the two into one algorithm in order to knock out this case. Let me show you. So here we go. We're back with our old l that we started in the beginning and we're going to start doing those in sequence. Like I said, first was the soon algorithm. So we're going to start using this pointer finger, finger trick. I'm about to show you with a r u r prime. You, or you could use this finger to push for that other YouTube. Are u2, r prime. Now you're left with this t o ILL, which you may or may not know, but you're about to learn it either way. So now you're going to either regroup and do your F Ru or you're going to use your thumb. But I like to do the regroup since it just kinda flows that way for me. So you're gonna do an F R U R prime, U prime, f prime. And that will knock that entire thing out. So done quickly, it looks like this. We are looking at a willow number 30. You have the Chair. No head lights this time. This time they are opposing. But you have to. On this side, this one takes the place of a lot of different PLL algorithms such as J prime and t prime, and even in some cases the firm as well. So it really depends on what your knowledge is of ELLs. But there is a lot of similar algorithms such as sledgehammer and others in this one that you may recognize. So I'm not the biggest fan of this algorithm. There are other algorithms, however, they have not necessarily worked for me. So this is the algorithm that I run with when I go to competition. You're gonna start by holding it just like this. And your first finger trick is going to be your thumb performing and F, like this. Next thing, you're going to do, a r prime, f R2, u prime, R prime, U prime, r u r prime. And I do a read grip for an F2. Seems kind of awkward, but that's just how the algorithm goes. And that's why I'm not the biggest fan of this one, but I have yet to have found another one that works better for me. So hopefully that's the same case for you. And you may find some value in this algorithm and done quickly, it looks like this. Now we're looking at a willow number 42. It's another awkward shape. However, at this time we have the chair that I call that is up there. This time. We're going to hold it just like this. We have headlights on the left and we only have those edge dots right there. So what we're gonna do is a regroup. And I'd like to perform this algorithm. I haven't found any that are better in my opinion. So to each their own, but this May 1 help you. So a r prime, u2, r u r prime. You are now, as you use your pointer finger here to push you do a regroup with this hand. So that way you can get yourself in position to knock out this ole L, which is the uneven T0, at least what I, what I like to call it, simply solved with a F R U R prime, U prime, f prime. So not too bad. It's not too bad. Especially the final end of it should be an algorithm that you already know. So it does move somewhat quickly. And because we have that additional push, that gives us a little free time with our right hand in order to do a regret in order to get that algorithm finished. So although it may not be ideal, it is efficient, to my opinion at least. But I think you guys will like that one and done quickly. It looks like this. All right. This is one of my favorites. Ill 29. With all little 29, you still have your chair that's up there this time. But you have a whole two bars right in front of you or two dots right in front of you, just like that. And everything else is kinda all over the place. So this one is a fun one. It's may not be the fastest algorithm that I know. However, it is a very good trainer algorithm similar to the other one I showed you earlier. So for this algorithm, you don't even have to necessarily look the cube notation for this because all you're gonna do is keep track of this F20 pair. So starting out, we're going to hold it just like this. We're going to do a RU R prime, U prime, just yet that F20 pair there. So now we're going to split this F20 pair up, keeping the wide on top by doing a r, u prime, r prime, and now they're split. So now we're going to pair them backup doing an f prime, u prime, f. Now there's setup for a three move insert just like that. And that will handle your polo. So all you gotta do is follow the pair so it's not too bad. So done again, just a little bit more fluid is just like this. And this is the finger tricks that I use. R U R prime, U prime, r prime, r prime, f prime u prime. And I regrouped here, f r u r prime. So pretty fun algorithm, very good for training if you are working on some finger tricks. This one and the one I recommended earlier, would be great for you to learn and practice. So done quickly, it looks like this. All right, you guys, that's the end of the course. Congratulations. I hope I was able to give you guys some valuable information. The good news is if you guys have been following along or for those that haven't. This is a course that is one of many courses where I cover a bunch of different alleles. And my goal was to make it so that at the end, you would know full LLL. So if you haven't seen any of my other courses that show you the different oils. Go ahead and take a look at the courses that I offer and you'll probably find something that you like. And for those that have been sticking with me through all of my old El courses. Thank you so, so much, it's been a pleasure teaching you and I hope I hear you guys in the reviews. So don't forget to go down in the bottom or at the top or wherever it's located and give this course review, let me know if you think I was doing something good, if I was doing something bad, and that way I can give you some better feedback, some better results later on. So I appreciate the help. Congratulations, and I'll see you guys in the next course and keep in mind, and we'll also be posting all of these algorithms as one video. Just give me a few weeks or so and I'll be able to put that out for you. But go ahead and follow me. So that way anytime I post a video, you'll be notified and you'll get to see the latest content that I post, but I'll see you guys in the next one. Good job.
