I've gone from thinking that a pinky count is impossible for any human to perform to the point where I can do it pretty well.
The key to learning this was the following: 1. Someone suggested that I start with a packet of 10 cards and learn to PC with that packet. Then add a few cards each day. This was by far the most important ingredient to my success. 2. I also made sure I practiced almost every day. Fire up Netflix and sit yourself in front of a Cheers re-run with your deck of cards and start your pinky counting! 3. I made sure I wasn't just trying to PC two cards and then starting over. I'd instead count 10 or 15 cards, and then "actually count" them to make sure I popped off the right number of cards. In other words, I might think I PC-ed 10 cards but in fact ended up with 12. 4. Someone in a Saturday Session recommended getting a Gripmaster Pro Edition. This seemed to help a little, but I think I got one that was too difficult. I bought the "Extra Heavy" one, which I can indeed squeeze closed, but that's with all my fingers working at once. I think I should've gotten a much easier one so I could just work my pinky instead. This should make my DL much better... Are there other uses for the PC that you guys find important?
