# Advanced tricks for F2L

### A contribution by Dave Orser

In the table below you can find some advanced tricks for solving corner/edge pairs of F2L.

Each lower case letter means that you have to move two layers at the same time. So a small u would mean that you need to move the upper two layers clockwise, and a small r' would mean that you need to move the right two layers counterclockwise.

Moves of two layers sometimes enable a very elegant and easy solution to the tougher cases of F2L.
