Along with Linda Scherzer, Tony was primary author of Bebe, a chess program and machine build around their company's SYS-10, Inc., custom mini- and mainframe processors based on bit slice technology. Bebe played almost all major tournaments in the 80s, and was one of the strongest chess machines of its time.
