He Broke The Blackjack Code
How amazing are Richard Harvey's blackjack methods? One player sued to try to get into one of his seminars, telling a local newspaper that only Richard Harvey could teach him what he desperately needed to know in order to win to the max - namely the world's most effective strategies, creations of Richard Harvey's 10+ years of blackjack research and decades of blackjack playing experience.
What is the Richard Harvey system all about?
Predictability and scientific precision. Those terms have never before been used to describe a blackjack game strategy. But those are exactly the terms being used to describe the breakthrough historic innovations of Richard Harvey. And if you're not yet aware of blackjack innovator Richard Harvey or his contributions to the game, you're not playing state-of-the-art blackjack. His new methods are the most state-of-the-art strategies on the planet today.
University-trained in theoretical math, statistics, computer science and scientific research methods, this math whiz and expert blackjack player devoted more than 10 years of his life to blackjack R&D, exploring better ways to beat the game. And it certainly paid off because his research discoveries and the methods that they produced have significantly raised the bar on what can be called state-of-the-art blackjack. Plus, after years of doing theoretical math models, card behavior studies, blackjack research, shuffling studies, computer analysis of three years of real casino-style blackjack card data, producing historic discoveries, and then the creation of killer new card strategy and betting methods, no one knows more about the ins and outs of the game than Richard Harvey. And no one has contributed more to blackjack progress in 50 years.
And he's proved his prowess time and time again; at the blackjack table and at his book events and seminars. At a recent seminar, for instance, before many witnesses, he accurately predicted the players' and dealers' outcomes in 100% of the rounds played at that event! And his methods can empower you to make stunningly accurate predictions, pull off incredibly precise card moves and bets, and raise your winning rate to the max, too!
This type of accuracy and power was not considered possible before Richard Harvey's books were first published in the late 1990s, revealing scientific breakthroughs in blackjack strategies that provided players with unheard of and unimagined precision and success. And if you don't know his methods, your approach is nowhere near as effective as it can be. You're not winning as much as you should.
If you're not able to tell, through state-of-the-art card analysis, what the dealer's hole card and hit cards are likely to be and therefore the dealer's likely outcome, you're not playing state-of-the-art precision blackjack!
If, based on this powerful information, you're not able to assess your hand versus the dealer's, you're not playing state-of-the-art precision blackjack!
If you don't know how to identify the players' facedown cards at single and double deck tables, you're not playing state-of-the-art precision blackjack!
If you don't know how to determine your likelihood of winning in the next round (and therefore, how to bet precisely)...If you don't know, scientifically, when you should leave (whether up or down)...If you don't know how to tell whether the cards are good or bad...you're not playing state-of-the-art precision blackjack!
(And that's just scratching the surface.)
The truth is, there's just one state-of-the-art system on the market today. Blackjack hasn't been the same since Richard Harvey's blackjack breakthroughs were first revealed in his bestseller Blackjack The SMART Way. The result of more than 10 years of intensive research into card behavior, blackjack realities and casino shuffling, Harvey's system was unknown to the world for quite some time - used only by him, as an expert player.
Praised by Kansas City Star gambling columnist Rick Alm as "a blackjack guru" and Denver talk show host Irv Brown as "The Blackjack KING," Richard Harvey has been acclaimed worldwide for creating the first new and better way to play the game in more than 40 years. No wonder Las Vegas gaming expert Howard Schwartz exclaimed: "He's (blazing) new territory!"
Nationally-syndicated radio host Erskine of Erskine Overnight has summed it up succinctly: "Richard Harvey is THE blackjack expert! He's the MASTER! "
In fact, the casino industry itself has in a way acknowledged and endorsed Richard Harvey's breakthroughs in the changes they've made to the game because of the revelations and new methods in his books. (Fortunately what they've done primarily is to hurt those who use older methods.) Nothing is more telling or a higher honor than that.
And there have been other honors. The producers of the short-lived World Series of Blackjack TV show certainly knew about Richard Harvey. They invited him on the show as an expert player (an invitation he reluctantly declined, for fear he'd get barred from every casino once his face became known). That's an invitation most players would have given their eye teeth for!
But blackjack and casino industry insiders know Richard Harvey. He's shaken the very foundations of the game. (And, predictably, some are not so happy about that, namely the casinos and the authors whose books are now obsolete.)
And his contributions to blackjack strategy have been many. Richard Harvey's discovery of variable dealer busting rates (that is, the fact that dealer up cards do not bust at constant, predictable rates, but vary dramatically over time) led to an Epiphany that a whole new approach to the game was required, to respond to the realities of the moment. This was also made clear by his discovery of the many mistakes past blackjack researchers had made in devising the methods that came before his (the methods dating back to the 1950s and '60s; the one-size-fits-all basic strategy approach and the card counting methods, which vainly attempted to deal with the reality of skewed results due to card imbalances).
Richard Harvey's more than one decade worth of grueling and exacting research then resulted in many huge historic breakthroughs, including the first-ever method allowing players to identify players' facedown cards at single and double deck tables. In 1962, the casino industry thought they'd thwarted players' abilities to analyze the cards by forcing them to place their first two cards facedown on the table when standing. With Richard Harvey's new methods, these cards are now easily identifiable, and accurate card analysis easily done. (See Cutting Edge Blackjack.)
One of his many other powerful inventions include the Precision Betting Method (introduced in the new Third Edition of Cutting Edge Blackjack), which enables players to predict, with a great deal of precision, the likelihood of their winning or losing in the next round, which empowers players to bet with unheard of accuracy. Jaws drop at Richard Harvey's seminars when he demonstrates this.
Then there is his:
- Ducks & Bucks method of identifying when the dealer is likely to bust or score - an entry-level method giving you the ability to make more precise card moves
- Win/Loss Margin Units method of determining correct betting levels and the scientific determination of when you should leave (up or down)
- Method that enables you to identify the dealer's hole card (a crucial card totally ignored by the others' books), which empowers you to make much more accurate card moves
And it goes on and on from there.
World-renowned as an expert player, bestselling author, blackjack columnist, talk show guest, public speaker and teacher, industry insiders and blackjack players alike have proclaimed Richard Harvey to be the world's top blackjack innovator and authority. Computer-tested and proven unusually successful, his methods rock.
Dramatically increase your winning rate, understanding of the game, gains and satisfaction with Richard Harvey's bestselling books, audio books, seminars, products and free blackjack advice. Make card moves and bets with unheard of precision.
...Here's how On The River (Memphis, TN) casino columnist Rudi Schiffer put it:
"RICHARD HARVEY...shakes up the foundation we have been standing on for years. Cutting Edge Blackjack is the result of three years of computer studies that provide food for thought if you are a serious player.
"Get this...Harvey, who is an accomplished player and very erudite on his favorite subject, has come up with a method that can uncover the identity of the dealer's hole card! Without using my secret X-ray vision glasses, this is quite an accomplishment.
"He also delves into how dealer shuffling affects your play, and how to make money off this. The book also dispels some long-held assumptions such as that there is one perfect Basic Strategy that is all a player needs to become a big winner and a great player. This book is well worth reading."
Were it not for his friends, who saw him winning more than not at casino blackjack and urged him to write them a book on his methods so they could become winners too, players would still be in the dark about Richard Harvey's powerful innovations. But fortunately his once-secret leading-edge methods and research discoveries are now yours, in three best-selling books and one CD audio book, to be had for the less than the price of a night at the movies!

*Many Vegas casinos, for instance, have gone to five-player tables, because Cutting Edge Blackjack revealed that basic strategy players at tables with five or fewer players cannot win, over the long term. But, fortunately, players using Richard Harvey's methods do not have this disadvantage. Casinos have also introduced shuffling machines and continuously-shuffled cards tables in a direct attempt to thwart the power of Richard Harvey's breakthroughs, including the discovery of repeating phenomena. (A game called Digital 21, much like online blackjack, with video screens at each betting spot and computer-generated action, was a part of this, too. This game, however, did not catch on.) The timing of these casino countermeasures is unmistakable. After all, no other books in the past 47 years introduced anything truly new, as did Richard Harvey's. The good news, though, is that whatever variant you play, Richard Harvey's system is still your best approach.

Blackjack For Fun & Profit
Although Richard Harvey cautions those considering blackjack as a profession that it takes a unique combination of talent, skills and devotion to learning as well as the right personality to deal with a demanding career with an unstructured schedule, it can't be argued that blackjack is worth considering not just as a source of fun but also of profit, especially in these tough economic times, for those capable of mastering Richard Harvey's system.
He did, after all, begin his blackjack career in a time of economic need.
"I started playing blackjack as a profession when I was laid off from a job and couldn't find another job in my chosen profession. I'd already spent a year and a half devising my own blackjack system, primarily at that time through theoretical math models and statistical studies, and my system had proven to be a winner, in computer tests.
"So it was a no-brainer. Needing a source of income, I went straight down to Atlantic City and seemlessly went to work, as it were, as a blackjack player. And my system worked great, just as it had in tests and practice rounds at home.
"I realized early on, however, that I needed to do more research to develop answers to questions and problems that became evident only at the casino. I noticed repeating patterns and I wanted to know: were they truly occurring and could I find a way to profit from them? I needed to devise scientific loss-limits that enabled me to identify when the cards were bad and get me out without huge losses. I also wanted to develop scientific methods to determine my likelihood of winning in the next round, bot make more precise bets. And so on. And so that led to my next multi-year research project, based upon real blackjack card data, that resulted in a whole new way of playing the game, from top to bottom. And that made winning that much easier.
"Now, even with all that, I also learned over that years that being a professional entails not a little on-the-job training. Blackjack players, for instance, can unfortunately get barred (except in New Jersey and one other Western state, where state law forbids casinos from barring players). So I needed to adjust my approach to limit my risk of getting barred. As readers of Blackjack The Smart Way can see, in fact, I realized there were a lot of non-strategy issues that needed to be addressed in order to win to the max.
"So, yes, if players are truly devoted to learning their craft and suited to playing the game as a profession, or as a means of making some money, then why not? I went that route and it's a viable option, for those who love the game as much as I do and are capable of mastering it."
And, in fact, many of Richard's loyal fans have told us they use his books as roadmaps for financial success. Some of the late great Ken Uston's blackjack team members and their children, in fact, have said they're now using Richard Harvey's system.
Seminar-goers often report going right out and going on a tear. One, in fact, who calls himself "the Black Richard Harvey," kept telling everyone at a recent seminar how many thousands of dollars he'd made with Richard Harvey's methods.
Their experience can be yours, of course, if you have the same passion for blackjack and ability to learn Richard Harvey's system as those who have excitedly reported their success using it.
The proof is in the great feedback we've gotten from readers and seminar-goers.
We mention this because Richard Harvey's books do not specifically mention making a career out of blackjack. He wanted to err on the side of caution, because everyone comes to the table with differing talent levels, abilities and seriousness.
Yet he does talk about making players consistent winners. And so perhaps that will motivate you even more (the opportunity to profit financially from a game worth playing) if you're still on the fence about whether or not Richard Harvey's books are for you.
"You cannot be a great player if you don't have a passion for blackjack, though," Richard cautions. "You can't be in this for the money. That's a secondary consideration.
"But if you love the game as much as I do, and get as a big an adrenaline rush as I do when I beat the house, then, yeah, it's definitely worth consideration."*
*"(That being said, discipline is an essential component to winning. So you have to be honest with yourself. If you tend to be obsessive and cannot bring yourself to stop playing when you know you should, I'd recommend you not attempt this. You cannot win if you don't know when to stop playing. I give you the guidelines but you yourself are the one who must be strong enough to get up and leave when it's time. If you cannot do that, please don't even consider blackjack as an avocation much less as a profession. Like anything else that involves money, you must be capable of being responsible if you want to make a go of it.)"
