Your right fingers come over the top of the deck and push the top card forward about three-quarters of an inch (Fig.5). The amount isn't critical.

With the fingers underneath the bottom card, and the thumb on top of the top card, pull both outwards, then lever them face-up, endover-end on top of the deck (Fig.6). There is even less need to worry about alignment here than with the Straddle method, as the right fingers cover everything during the process. The only bad angle is dead left.
