Where The Fun Is!

Mentor-Mentee

The Houston Bridge Studio holds two monthly Mentor-Mentee games.

The games are held on

  • The second Wednesday of the month at 10:30 am and
  • the fourth Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm.

The purpose of these games is to give our newer players an opportunity, that they would otherwise not have, to play with a more advanced player against other mentee/mentor pairs and receive some important tips at the end of the game.

Here’s how it works:

  • The mentee will pay 1 1/2 times the normal entry fee ($12.00).
  • The mentor will play free.
  • Mentee-Mentor pairings will be the same every month unless one of you asks for a change.  Please ask for a change if you are not comfortable with your mentor/novice!  You can work better with someone if you are comfortable with that person!
  • The mentor will play the mentee’s convention card. The novice should bring a copy of their current convention card to the game.
  • After the game the mentor will sit down with the mentee and go over some things they did well in the game and give no more than 2 or 3 suggestions for improvement.  Hand records will help in the review session.  Critiques at the table are forbidden.
