I usually will leave the bleeder cracked open, top off, while filling master, keep pumping pushing the air out. When I get a pretty good stream out of the bleeder, I hold the lever down and shut the bleeder. Then bleed normally. If I still feel there is air in there, I leave the top off, squeeze the lever, release lever really slowly (like a sun dial) and watch it pull the bubbles out, back into the reservoir. Works every time.
