Hi, my name is Adam, and I'm a cubaholic. Anyway,

I recently picked up a cube, looked up Jiri and

Lars' sites, and started cubing. By the time I could do

it without looking at the instructions, I was at 5

minutes. Before I knew it, I was down to 3:30, and now I'm

stuck at 2:00. I now use Jiri's method, except I have a

few legacy sequences still from Lars, and I place the

bottom corners/middle edges separately.<br><br>This is

using Meffert's assembly cube (it looked kosher on the

web page) which is the only one I have for now.

<br><br>It takes me 15 seconds to form a cross, a minute to

finish the F2L, and 30 seconds to: orient to cross,

position corners, flip corners, move sides. I've tried to

think out the F2L logically, but recognition is killing

me! Anyone have any secrets for recognizing where two

cubies are and putting them together? Does Jiri's sheet

work for you? <br><br>I tried thinking:<br> 1. Is the

face color on the corner:<br> a. down<br> b. in a

straight line with the connected cubie<br> c. in an 'L'

with the connected cubie<br> 2. Are the bottom

facelets the same color<br> 3. Do I know this one, or do I

need to reflect it?<br><br>But by the time I narrow it

down, I've forgotten which one I was doing.<br><br>Any

help would be great. Sorry for redundancy,

Dan.<br><br>Adam
