It's much more interesting to count in terms of how many cards remain in the deck. Some people have fat fingers, others have slower CPUs.
Well I did say it was just for fun after playing it hundreds of times. But I find the remaining card count no more than mildly interesting.
And slower CPUs? Ha. I'll give you a few microseconds head start. Fat fingers? Do other competitors complain Usain Bolt has longer legs? It's all part of the competition.
I think you're just scared you can't beat my time.
