if it doesn't then keep practicing
A good thing that helps is to use your whole finger, instead of just the tip to fan it. otherwise you are left with a pack of unfanned cards to the right.

 Thanks for posting this!
Awesome! Thanks for the Instructable! I've been practicing this for the past couple days, and I think I've finally got it down. Found out that it helps me to put the pressure from my thumb closer to the middle of the deck, or sometimes the near side, unlike in your step one and two pictures. I think I just have smaller thumbs. Thanks again!
