It says you can get an edge over the casino "in less than one hour."

Avoid.

Sorry to say this, but the exact same words can be used to describe thousands of bad books. The fact is, claims about the Speed Count are false. Efforts to halt independent analysis were disturbing. The claims that they welcomed independent analysis were duplicitous. The refusal of his teachers to accept independent review from multiple researchers is embarrassing, to put it kindly.

Default Henry Tamburin too

QFIT: Thanks for the information. I just heard an interview done by Steve Bourie of American Casino Guide with Henry Tamburin. It was a general interview and at its end Tamburin plugs Speed Count. He doesn't say it's as powerful as traditional card-counting methods, but he says it's a viable method for a basic strategy player who wants to take the next step toward mastery of the game. After listening, I went to Tamburin's website where he advertises Speed Count courses taught with Frank Scoblete that were sold for eight-hundred dollars.

Isn't Speed Count the same as OPP? (Is it exactly the same?)
