5x5 Last 2 Centers (L2C)

Okay, so you've managed to solve 4 of the 6 centers on your 5x5. The next step is going to be solving the last 2 centers (L2C) without destroying the other centers. This guide has been written by KewbzUK and we have taken different algorithms for each case from different places online and by speaking to some of the fastest 5x5 speed solvers in the U.K to bring the best of the best algorithms for solving the last 2 centers of the 5x5 Rubik's Cube.

We are using standard WCA notation in this guide. If you think you know a better algorithm please do reach out and let us know.
