I have just unexpectedly acquired a chop cup. Can someone advise on the best teaching resource(s) for routines with it?

Look up RSVP Magic's , Martin Sanderson "Corporate Close Up " Vol. #1 Dvd. Available at Penguin and other dealers.
Great Dvd. Well worth the price including a super chop cup routine.

One classic work is "The 'How To' Book of the Chop Cup" by Merlyn T. Shute (printed by Morrissey Magic).

You might check out Lybrary.com. They have Jim Sisti's book on the chop cup for $8, and Will Ayling's book for $7.
It's still magic even if you know how it's done.

Thanks again for all the further replies. I shall check them out.

Meanwhile, I downloaded the Martin Sanderson and I can fully concur with davidpaul$'s comments. It has some great walk-around close-up effects and Martin is one polished performer.

The Don Alan book by John Racherbaumer is a good place to start.
