Hrm... your method doesn't seem to be that different, other than where the index finger and thumb grip the card. "My" method just grips it a little further down from the corner.
Do they pitch the cards face up and spinning clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere?

"My" method just grips it a little further down from the corner.Well, the point of gripping the card with only thumb and one finger is that you get a fixed rotating point. I also think pitching it with the ring finger is hard because that finger is shorter than the middle finger (but I see now that you wrote middle finger as an alternative).If I recall correct the book also says you shall NOT flick your wrist. The pitch is done entirely with your fingers. This is beacuse for the seats closest to the dealer you will need turn your wrist sligthly (you always pitch the cards straight forward, you aim by moving your arms).
Slide top card is right, the rest is wrong:-)Pinch the corner of the card with your thumb and index finger, your middle finger should rest against the edge (long side) of the card.Pitch the card by straightening your middle finger (and when needed, open your hand). When the card leaves your hand the hand is more or less lying on the table, palm up.The stub is used as a "ramp" for the pitch.
