Abstract: Answering a question of Sakai, we show that the minimal cardinality of a set of reals $ X$ such that $ C_p(X)$ does not have the Pytkeev property is equal to the pseudo-intersection number $ \mathfrak{p}$. Our approach leads to a natural characterization of the Pytkeev property of $ C_p(X)$ by means of a covering property of $ X$, and to a similar result for the Reznichenko property of $ C_p(X)$.
