Has anyone ever offered any improvements or touches to the Cross of India? There are some tips in the original manuscript that are left out of later presentations (e.g., Ammar) but I'm wondering whether there was anything our there that improves on the original work in the manuscript.

Don't ask me what kind of improvements I'm looking for. If I knew, I wouldn't ask.

Hi Alex,
The original write up in secrets of a puerto rican gambler gives you all the information you require.
Pay particular attention to the presentational details that steve minch highlights.

Regards
john :)

I have an (unpublished) version that uses a shell.

Play with the routine (+the gaff) & you should be able to connect the dots (the shell allows you to show a coin's arrival.)

I suppose I'll be 'offering' it somewhere, sometime... will post here if/when I do.
