EG-1 three side view.gif

What is EG-1?

EG-1 is just like CLL, but you have two adjacently solved pieces, and two unsolved pieces. (Also shown in the picture above)

How do I hold the bottom?

The adjacent solved pieces are almost always held in the back, but in some cases it's held on the left. If the algorithm has an [L] At the beginning of it, that means you hold the bar on your left.

Should I learn EG-1?

I would only recommend learning it if you plan to start taking 2x2 fairly serious. If not, then CLL will be just fine for you.

How fast can I get with EG-1? 

EG-1 combined with CLL should be able to easily get you to a 2.50-2.60 average.
