Daniel Negreanu uses the "astrologer's fallacy". He calls out people's hands semi-randomly based on good guesses just like anyone would. Each time has maybe a 1/4 or 1/10 chance of being correct. When he's wrong you just forget it, but when he's right it's very memorable and seems amazing. You wind up remembering that he seems to name people's hands very often. Of course TV helps him because they show hands where he gets it right.
