But he decides to use his mathematical knowledge and skill to beat the casinos of the USA and Canada, particularly in Ontario and Quebec, from 1959 to 1961 years. After all, he sets a goal to beat a casino one day.

To achieve this, he recruits a couple of his best students, and together they apply card counting schemes at various casinos. As a result, they break several banks, thereby helping to solve a lot of problems for the professor, including his concerns about the mafia.
