From what i am aware of about the move, the "pinky count" is a successful method to secure a break, preferably two cards, in preparation of executing a dL.

i am trying to find sources where i can learn this simple sleight which i am not yet fully familiar with. thank you to any replies to this thread.

i learned it from card college volume 1. But darwin might teach it better. I don't know. But if you were thinking about getting card college and this is the tipping point then i suggest that you do get it. Its a great book.

Very true. I only mentioned Darwin because of the amount of work he has on the move. He uses it quite a bit and popularized the move. Giobbi's teaching is second to none, though.

Darwin Ortiz probably uses it more than any other magician and I learn it from his book At The Card Table.

Without a doubt one of the best sleights (?) I have ever taken the time to learn

I learned it from Oz Pearlman's Born To Perform DVD
It's one of those moves that there's not really much to learn, just takes practice.
It's done the way you think it's done.
