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 feel and wisely will make you a respected and feared opponent. And if the opponents occasionally make a double contract against you, be consoled by what a mentor taught me: if they never make a doubled contract, you aren't doubling often enough.
