About the Author

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.
