Education at BHBC

Every week, the Beverly Hills Bridge Club offers classes for beginners, 99ers, 199ers and 299ers.

FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS

Lessons

If you are an absolute beginner, have played a little but would like to start over “from scratch”, or just need a tune-up on various points, John Ramos and Sharon Beynon will be holding several series of classes starting in May.

  • Beginner 1, instructor: Sharon Beynon - Saturday morning, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.
  • Beginner 2, instructor: John Ramos - Sunday morning, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

    Click here for the Beginner 2 schedule and syllabus.

  • Beginner 3, instructor: John Ramos  - Saturday morning, from 8:45 am to 10:45 am.

The cost is $20 per lesson. These are playing lessons, so you will practice what you learn.

Supervised Play

We also have supervised play sessions. Each session begins with a short lesson on a narrowly focused topic (e.g., Stayman, suit combinations, etc.). For the remainder of the time, the students bid and play hands that illustrate that topic. These sessions review and reinforce what has been covered in the Beginner classes and provide students with an excellent opportunity to practice what they have learned. The cost per session is $12. Saturdays from 10:45 am to 12:45 pm

John Ramos

John Ramos learned bridge as a child and has been an active tournament player since 1991. He is an ACBL Sapphire Life Master whose best finishes in Open National Events were 8th in the 2009 Roth Open Swiss Teams and 13th in the 2016 Kay Platinum Pairs, widely regarded as the best pair event in the United States. He also won back-to-back national titles in the Flight A Grand National Teams in 2008 (representing New York City) and 2009 (representing Los Angeles). His teaching philosophy recognizes that different people learn at different speeds and in different ways, and focuses on making the game fun at all levels. John is available for questions at couchbaron@gmail.com
