Nothing exemplifies the keen competitive spirit of tournament bridge better than the penalty double. Anytime a final contract is doubled, the stakes are raised not just the score but the implied mano a mano challenge. When you acquire a feel for opportunistic penalty doubles, you have added a potent weapon to your arsenal. Your courage to double freely and wisely will make you a respected and feared opponent. And if the opponents occasionally make a doubled contract against you, be consoled by what a mentor taught me: if they never make a doubled contract, you aren t doubling often enough. This book, like my books on demon doubling and 3NT, is intended for the intermediate and advanced intermediate club and tournament player.

August W. (Augie) Boehm played his first duplicate session at age nine, sitting on a phone book because he was small for his age. In 1961, at the age of 14, he became the youngest player ever to win a national championship. By then, he had played in many tournaments with bridge greats Alfred Sheinwold, Egar Kaplan, and Tobias Stone. Today, his numerous successes have placed him among the top ranks in the United States. The Bridge World magazine calls him, "one of America's premier players and professional players." He writes the popular monthly column Boehm on Bridge for The Bridge Bulletin and is a regular contributor to The Bridge World. He serves on bidding panels for both publications. Augie teaches bridge in New York City, where he is also a concert pianist.
