      I'm a little confused about your step 6. If you have already placed
      three of the left edges, how could you place two left edges in step
      6 ?

        my bad . . . I meant it to be like this:

        1. Solve two adjacent corners(with center I always use red)0-2s

        two right edges at the same time. 2-3s(recognition kills me here and
        now it takes me 3-7s)
