So I've been having this problem for some time now, without much luck in fixing it by myself. I do a pretty good thumb fan, nice and even - and have no problem closing it with a flick of the wrist. Except for one card. For some reason, the card that is touching my middle (pivot) finger sticks up like a cowlick, no matter what I seem to do.

For reference, I do my thumb fan with the deck in my left hand, holding the lower left corner of the deck between my middle finger and thumb.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. But not nearly so dangerous as no knowledge at all.

I meant to respond to this post earlier.
You don't mention whether you treat the cards with fanning powder. If you do, it may be because the fanning powder on that one card has worn off a little. If so, re-apply some fanning powder to that one card and it may help solve the problem.

When closing the fan, insure that it's the nail of the middle finger not the pad that has contact with deck.

You could use this to your advantage if you do a brae reversal (did I spell that right?), then fan the cards so you cant see the flipped card, and finally close the fan to reveal their card.
Reality is a real killjoy.
