I recently came across two books, "Blackjack The Smart Way", and "New Ways To Win More At Blackjack" by Richard Harvey in which he claims he can teach you to predict the dealer's hole card by using what he calls card observation, the ducks and bucks method, and card counting in conjuntion with card observation. I found some not so nice comments about him on the web so I'm not looking for personal opinions about the man, just the cold hard facts. Has anyone ever tried any of his methods, if so which ones, and did they work for you? How do experts like Wong, Snyder, Scoblete etc. feel about his methods?
