about me

A 'rocket' scientist in my previous life, working for Northrop Grumman on Long Island for 33 years after receiving PhD from Columbia University. During that time also taught, lectured, invented, consulted, authored nearly 100 refereed publications, on loan for one year to NASA as a visiting scholar and a short time to Cambridge University, England, as a visiting professor.  Retired in 1998 soon after being elected to the ACBL Board of Directors, representing NYC and Long Island (District 24).

 

Unit Board member (Nassau-Suffolk Bridge Association) and District Board member for as long as I can remember...maybe 40 years.  Past President and Tournament Chair.  ACBL Board of Directors, 1996-present, president 2003; WBF Executive Council 2004-present, currently Executive VP and IT chair.  On ACBL I serve as online-bridge coordinator (since 1998).  Trustee of ACBL 401(k) since 2000.

 

Originated the World Computer-Bridge Championship in 1997 and have run it annually at a major human championship ever since.  See the official website which I maintain, www.computerbridge.com

 

With an eye toward promoting bridge, I published a page of bridge links, titled 'explore the world of bridge on the Internet’ at www.allevybridge.com/allevy/worldofbridge.html/ See the June 2012 Bridge Bulletin and previous Bridge Winners article.

 

Member of ACBL Laws Commission and WBF Laws Committee. Edited the Laws of Rubber Bridge 2014 version in coordination with the Portland Club.

@Randy The sanction fees ae the same as for live clubs. Sanction fees are $1.00 per table for 18- boards and $0.55 per table for 12-17 boards. A table is four players, so in a robot game where there is one human at a table, that table is ...

@Jeff. “However, online bridge decreased at a 5.5% clip. If players stopped playing at clubs and tournaments, and they clearly didn't turn to online play, what is going on? “ Recent figures are misleading. When BBO raised its card fee to $1.25 from $1.00 play decreased by ...
