About the Author

My name is Pat Filice. I am a barrister and solicitor in Ontario and an attorney at law in New York. I completed my legal training in the United States and am a partner in the law firm Gatto, Filice & Associates.

Prior to attending law school, I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Economics at McMaster University in Hamilton. My first undergraduate degree was an Honours Bachelor of Science in Statistics, also at McMaster University where I graduated Summa Cum Laude.

I first became interested in the game of Blackjack from a mathematical point of view during my statistics studies at McMaster. Heavily influenced by one of my professors teaching Probability Theory, who happened to use Blackjack teaching examples at every available opportunity, I became quite versed in all of the probability and odds calculations associated with the game of Blackjack.

Later, with the aid of both statistical and computer simulations and my own experiences at the casinos, I began to put this knowledge down on paper. This marked the beginning of BLACKJACK: The Complete Strategy. Since the first drafts of this system back in 1994, this system has been re-written and refined several times resulting in this latest version.

I currently live in Hamilton, Ontario with my family and am completing a Masters in Law graduate degree in e-Business from Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto.
