Explains blackjack expert Richard Harvey's unique system, which posted a win rate of nearly 90% in casino field tests. Full of illustrations and easy to understand, the book was written for the average player, who does not have a huge amount of money to risk, and is not a mathematical genius with an elephantine memory. Contains concepts you will not find anywhere else: a card strategy based on a new mathetical understanding of which dealer up cards are REALLY in the player's favor; the author's method for picking a good table; Richard Harvey's X Factor, which tells the player when to leave a table-either up or down; the unique 3-Unit, Notch-Up, Notch-Down Money Management Method, which minimizes downside risk dramatically while maximizing upside gain potential; and the author's creation Card Observation, which is simpler and more revealing in some ways than card counting. Also contains a new card counting system and a method to detect and avoid casino countermeasures and dirty tricks.

This book is really different from most of the other offerings on the market. It's aimed at the everyday blackjack player (not would-be professionals, although they would benefit from it, too). Its card strategy is an eye-opener: it reveals that some dealer up cards traditionally thought favorable to the player are actually NOT, and that some dealer up cards traditionally thought favorable to the dealer are actually NOT. That changes things a lot, and allows the player to take advantage of opportunities they probably don't realize they have. Really, there is so much that is new and unique to this book that, hopefully, it will achieve due recognition for the insights it adds to the pantheon of great blackjack literature.From the Author:
I wrote this book because of the urging of my friends, who had witnessed my great success at the casino, and wanted to learn my secrets. The more I wrote, the more I realized how much went into my success -- from my technique of choosing a good table (which is apparently a skill few realize they must have), to my method of deciding when to leave a table or casino (which is one of the keys to winning), and, then, my many innovations in card strategy, money management, card tracking and table "monitoring" (keeping track of how favorable the action is over time). My method for detecting casino countermeasures (while playing) and casino dirty tricks (especially, before sitting down to play) has kept me away from trouble, and contributed to my high win rate. The more I realized how novel my system was, the more proud I became as I set it down in writing. The illustrations also greatly add to this book -- helping to explain concepts not found in any other book, in a simple fashion.
