Demon Defense And Demon Doubling: Defend With Skill And Double For Keeps

If you want to get better at Bridge, and since you are reading this article you most likely want to, you have to work hard on the level of your game. I enjoy many games and as a former professional poker player I might have some insights that can help you. There is so much literature available on the game it's hard to select a best book. There is also the danger of buying many books each only adding a little bit to your existing knowledge. August Boehm offers a solution; he writes books that are mainly about their prime subject. In this case penalty doubles in Bridge.
