I actually prefer "finger choking" when possible. On my cowled airplanes, which is most of them, I use the normal routine: crack open the throttle, choke and flip 'till it starts and then quits, then choke open and flip until it runs. But with my un-cowled engines, I just slowly turn the engine over with my finger choking the carb. When I feel my finger get wet, I stop. Then it is throttle just above idle, turn on the ignition, and they nearly always start with only one flip.
