How To: Use the ZBF2L algorithms to solve the Rubik's Cube

Use the ZBF2L algorithms to solve the Rubik's Cube

This video tutorial is for beginner puzzlers who are getting more advanced in their speedsolving of the Rubik's Cube. When solving the Rubiks Cube, there are these mathematical equations called algorithms, which I'm sure you already know. With an endless supply of them out there for this puzzle, how can you possibly remember them all? By watching videos, that's how. This one will help teach you how to use the ZBF2L algorithms to solve the Rubik's Cube. What is the ZBF2L? It's the ZB Method of solving the First Two Layers or Mr. Rubiks. That's right.

This F2L method involves the corner and edges connected in the top layer, the corner and edge separated in the top layer, the insert edge of the first two layers, the insert corner of the first two layers, and the corner and edge connected in the first two layers.
