I've seen a few guys start their card routine by, opening the card case and then removing the deck, all with one hand.

I would love to learn this flourish - does anyone know of any sources which explain it please.

Many thanks,

I have it on a DVD somewhere. It is not explained but you can follow it very good and reconstruct the moves yourself. It is not difficult.
If I knew only which DVD... I will search.
If I am not mistaken you begin with the deck in your hand and the flap is pointed to the audiance and the "moon" in on the underside. With you first finger you pusch the flap open and up. Then you turn the whole deck over with your thump and push the cards out.

The concept is known as an opener and there's many ways to do it.

some simple openers are explained if you just youtube "XCM opener" :

really you can figure it out yourself. here's a video where I start with a one handed opener, all it is is a straddle grip (but lengthwise on the pack) and use your thumb to open the flap and (still using your thumb) push the box up, off the pack. you don't have to flick it into the air I just did that to continue the opener sequence. (at about 8 seconds in)

"Just Call Me Mr. Wonderful" from Paul Harris is a good one... it's in the AoA series along with the Close-up Fantasies books.

Check out cradle to grave from Devo. The first sequence is an awesome one-handed removal.
