Tula kollel is the technique of

correctly orienting all of your last

layer pieces in two steps or looks the

first step is to orient all of your edge

pieces using an algorithm and the second

step is to orient all of your corner

pieces using a second algorithm because

you're using two algorithms instead of

one it's slower than full o ll but to

look o ll cuts down the number of

algorithms that you have to learn from

57 to just 10 making it great for

beginners leave the comment down below

telling me what you have John 3x3 and

once you do that we can get started so

like I mentioned the first step of to

look ll is to orient all of your edges

and doing this takes up three of the ten

algorithms you'll have to learn in Tula

Colo there are four possible situations

you could have for your edges and for

this we're going to ignore the corners

altogether you can either have just a

dot so none of your four edges are

oriented you can have this L shape where

you have two edges oriented that are

next to each other you can have a line

where you have two edges oriented that

are across from each other and last but

not least you can have your full cross

already which is basically a skip of

this first step and in a case like this

you'd only have to do one algorithm even

with Tula Colo so I'm actually going to

start by showing you how to deal with

the line case and you'll see why in a

minute so when you get a line case you

want to make the line go horizontally

across the cube like this

and then you can do this algorithm to

orient all of your edges F R u R prime u

prime F prime basically this algorithm

is you start with an F then you do sexy

move which is R u R prime u prime and

then you do an F Prime and that will

take you from a line case to having all

of your edges oriented next we have the

L case and there are two different good

algorithms for this you could just learn

one or the other but learning both isn't

a bad idea either so first when you have

the L you can put it in the back left

like this

and then knew this algorithm f u R u

prime R prime F Prime

so that's F and then inverse of sexy

move and then an F Prime at the end and

the other way of dealing with your L

case is by putting it in the front right

like this and then doing this algorithm

why def R u R prime u prime wide F Prime

now if you're observant you will notice

that this is the exact same as the

algorithm I showed for the line case

except instead of doing just an F move

you'll do a wide F move and then end

with a wide F Prime

so that's a little bit easier to

memorize but the other ones still easy

as well and both of them are about the

same speed and last but not least we

have the dot case and the reason I save

this for last is because this algorithm

is actually just a combination of the

ones I've already shown so for this you

can hold it from any angle because it's

symmetrical in terms of your edges and

then you do this you do F R u R prime u

prime F prime Y def R u R prime u prime

Y def front so again this is just

combining the two algorithms that I've

shown you or you can remember it as f

sexy move F prime Y def sexy move F

prime and that will take you from a dot

case to having your cross solved so now

that you know how to orient your edges

you're on to the orienting of your

corners the second step of Toula kollel

and this has seven cases which means

seven more algorithms to learn let's go

through them in order so here is the

first case that I'm going to show you

and this one is called it soon you can

recognize soon because you only have one

corner oriented

and when you put this oriented corner in

the front left like this you will have a

yellow sticker right here on the front

of this corner when you have those

things you have soon and then you can do

this algorithm are you are prime u R u2

R prime so if I were trying to remember

this by what's happening I would notice

that the R u R prime takes out this pair

u moves it over and then you do R u2 R

prime to insert it again so just one

more time you have one oriented corner

and when it's in the front left you have

a yellow sticker right here on the front

of this corner and then you do R u R

prime u R u2 R Prime now this case is

called anti soon it looks a lot like

soon because it has one oriented corner

but in this case you'll notice that if

we put the oriented corner in the front

left we don't have that yellow sticker

here it's actually on this side right

here which is how we know it's anti soon

so when we have it anti soon we can put

this oriented corner in the back right

like this and then do this algorithm R

u2 R prime u prime R u prime R prime so

again this is basically the reverse of

soon in terms of the algorithm so you'll

notice once again we have one oriented

corner we don't have that one sticker

that we talked about for soon so what we

do is we put the oriented corner in the

back right and then how I'd remember

this is that you're taking out the pair

doing a u2 this time and then moving it

over and inserting it

there is another algorithm for anti soon

that some people like better and people

call this one back soon for this one you

will put your oriented corner in the

back left

and then the algorithm is our prime u

prime R u prime R prime u 2 R so

basically what you're doing is putting

your oriented corner in the top left and

then doing soon from the back which some

people think is better I think they're

about the same I actually use both

albums depending on the situation and as

you get faster that's probably what

you're going to end up doing but it's

okay if you choose a favorite now and

stick to that for a little while okay

next we have this case which is called T

for this case we have two oriented

corners that are next to each other like

this and then we notice these two other

corners they're facing out away from

each other or at least the yellow

stickers are facing away from each other

like this and so that's how we tell that

we have T there is another case with two

oriented corners but the other corners

will have a yellow pointing right here

which is how you tell them apart so for

T what you want to do is hold your two

oriented corners on the right side and

then do this algorithm wide R u R prime

u prime wide R prime F R F Prime

so what you're basically doing for this

algorithm is once again you're putting

your oriented stickers on the right side

like this then you're doing a sexy move

except starting with a wide R and then

you're doing a sledgehammer except

starting with a wide R Prime and that's

how I remember what the T algorithm is

okay next up we have the u case which is

the one I was just mentioning it has two

oriented corners next to each other just

like the T case except instead of having

your yellow stickers facing away from

each other this one facing up and this

one facing down you have them facing in

the same direction which in most

circumstances is called headlights so

for this you're going to want to put

your oriented corners in

back and then your headlights are facing

you and then you will do this algorithm

are 2d r prime u2 r d prime R prime u2 R

prime so just once more you put your

oriented corners in the back so then

your headlights are facing towards you

and the way that I'd remember this is

that you start off with R 2 D and then

your next moves are basically taking out

this pair and moving it over twice like

that then your D prime is putting the D

layer back into place and then you do R

prime u 2 R prime to insert that pair

once more ok next we have this case

which is called the L case so the L case

is the only case where you have two

oriented corners that are diagonal from

each other like this and when you have

this what you want to do is line it up

so that you have your oriented corners

in the front left and back right and

then you have this sticker pointing

towards you right here if you do a

YouTube from this angle you'll still

have your oriented corners in the right

position but you won't have this sticker

and then the algorithm won't work from

this angle so it's very important that

you're careful and you have this angle

with the sticker pointing towards you

here so for this one you're going to

want to do F prime wide R u R prime u

prime wide R prime F R so the way that I

remember this one is that you do an F

prime to start off then you do sexy

moves except you start with a wide arm

move instead and then you end off just

by doing wide R prime F R that one's a

little bit harder to remember in that

way but you can sort of see what all the

pieces are doing and where they're going

which makes it easier to remember what

it is and there is one other decent

algorithm for the L case that you can

use instead if you like it better for

this one you're going to hold it so that

you're oriented corners are in the front

right and back left and then you have a

sticker facing towards you in the front

left like this and for this one you're

going to want to do F R prime F prime

wide are you our new prime wide R prime

so you can remember this one because

once again you have the oriented corners

in the front right and back left and

your sticker pointing at you right here

and you start off with the inverse of a

sledgehammer except you end off with a

wide R instead of a regular R and then

you can basically act like you're

inserting this f2l pair except on the

last move you're going to have to do a

wide R prime to fix this layer and

that's how I remember that algorithm so

now we're on to our last two cases and

these are the ones where you have no

oriented corners to start this one is

called the H case and so for this one of

course you have no oriented corners and

then here you can see we have headlights

and then on the opposite side we also

have headlights it's important that you

check for both of these sets of

headlights in order to tell that it's

the H case so then you want to align it

so that you have headlights facing

towards you it can be either set that's

the one cool thing about H is that it's

symmetrical this way so you can do it

from this angle or this angle and then

you do this algorithm R u2 R prime u

Prime

are you our prime u prime are u prime R

prime so once again you just want a set

of headlights facing towards you and

then the way I remember it is that

you're taking out this front pair with a

u2 then you move it over do sexy move

and then insert this pair and that will

do your hola

there is one other algorithm that some

people like 4-h where instead of doing

it with headlights facing towards you

you have the headlights on either side

and then you do this algorithm which

goes R u R prime u R u prime R prime u R

u2 R prime that's actually just the

inverse of the first H algorithm but if

you want to learn this one the way I

remember it is that you take out this

front pair 2 right here then you do an

inverse sexy move move over the pair 2

right here and then insert the f2l pair

from there and that will do your Ola and

here is the last case of the two look

Ola algorithms and this one is called

the PI case now once again you have no

oriented corners and we have one set of

headlights here but here's why you need

to be careful instead of having a second

set of headlights like H did you have

two stickers facing away from each other

like we did for the T case so you need

to be really careful so you don't

mistake this for an H case but when you

have this what you want to do is hold it

just like this so you have your

headlights on your left and then you'll

have a one sticker facing towards you in

the front right and then that will be

facing away from you and your algorithm

for this will be R u2 R - u prime R - u

prime

our two you two are so here's how you

remember this one

once again you hold your headlights on

the left and then you take out this pair

with are you two and then instead of

just doing our prime you do an are two

to take out this pair as well move

everything over then you're going to re

insert that pair and then you're going

to cancel into doing a you to insert to

re-enter that pair and just as one final

piece of advice for the pie case

specifically this one has a lot of

arches and u2's and arches and you twos

are the same whether you do them as a

YouTube or a YouTube Prime for example

but this alga is easier if you do it in

a specific way where you do all of your

youtubes as YouTube Prime's with a

double flick like this and you alternate

between doing our two forward and our

two backward so I'll show you that our

YouTube prime then you're gonna do our

two down like that you prime our two up

you prime our tube down YouTube prime

double flick and then our and that's how

I execute the pie case so those are all

the algorithms you need to know to

always be able to solve ll in only two

algorithms so I hope this was really
