I am sure Guy Hollingworth discussed this and does a vertical count at chest height
Where do you recall Guy discussing the how-to of vertical false counts? He discusses how to spread the cards for his alignment procedure and the sleight which happens during the "wave" yet I'm missing where he discusses the basic block transfer needed to do Elmsley (even) and Hamman (odd) counts.

This is probably not the answere your are looking for, but it works for me. If I am sitting, I simply extend my hands so they are closer to the viewers. Naturally, I must keep keep the hands fairly close to table top so they can be seen. However, the easiest for me is to stand in a crouch position.

Thanks, bobmag56. Crouch position wouldn't work for me due to back problems, but I'm glad it works for you! I think I have a pretty good solution, though, which is just to turn my wrist and forearm a bit after each take, so that the taking hand is horizontal with its palm facing spectators.
