We prove a boundary comparison principle for positive infinity-harmonic functions for smooth boundaries. As consequences, we obtain (a) a doubling property for certain positive infinity-harmonic functions in smooth bounded domains and the half-space, and (b) the optimality of blowup rates of Aronsson's examples of singular solutions in cones.
