No tricks, just good technique.
Light pressure, alternating sides of the blade every stroke, edge leading strokes, LIGHT pressure, ensuring you're hitting the apex on both side.
It helps if you avoid raising a large burr in the first place.
I also remove the burr with the stone that created it. If I raised a burr reprofiling a knife, I remove it with my reprofiling stone. If I raise a burr with my medium bench stone, I remove it with that stone. Regardless of how polished I plan to go with the edge, I never progress grits until I can't detect a burr by hand.
