The Thumb Fan is a fancy way to display a deck of cards. Try to make the fan as big and consistent as possible. At the end of the video I teach a slick way of closing the fan with one hand.

Does the deck have to be new to do the fan? I’m using an oldish deck and the fan looks terrible.
Also, for me the one-handed close is easier than the fan itself, lol.
If the deck is sticky, then you won’t be able to get a good fan. The cards don’t have to be new, but they do have to be smooth.
Any tips on if your hands sweat and stick for a ‘terrible’ fan? I’ve heard to use baby powder but that really makes things a little slippery…
I have smaller hands and struggle to complete the fan fully. Do you have any pointers or tips to help me?
I also have small hands. I learn new flourishes with a Bicycle bridge deck then transition to poker size.
Perfect! Just in time too, I’ve been practicing it (it seems I can do it better with the traditionally cut Bicycles, but it may be just my own preference).
When I do the one handed close all it does is move the bottom card are my cards too slippery?
Always EXCELLENT instructions and video quality. The thumb fan works great with a “stripper deck”. Thank you
