Mentor Game Information

DO YOU WANT TO HELP A LESS EXPERIENCED BRIDGE PLAYER IMPROVE?  Consider what a tremendous contribution you will be making on several levels!

Do you have at least 300 masterpoints [or, better yet, more than 500]?




PLEASE JOIN US!  We want to grow this program!

Bridge Club of Houston proudly hosts three (3) Mentor Games per month.

  • The F2F Mentor Game of the Club occurs on the second Tuesday of each month at 10:30 a.m.

The Mentor plays for free.   The player utilizing the Mentor pays $10.

The partnership will work together to develop a convention card.

If you need a mentor OR want to be a mentor, contact Judy Cupps at 713.320.5592, who will attempt to arrange partnerships.  Please confirm your attendance with Judy.

  • The online Mentor Game is held on BBO [Bridge Base Online] at 7:00 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of the month.   The game will still be held on holidays unless notice is posted on the website.

The less experienced player issues an invitation on BBO to the mentor and pays $10 for both players.  

No pre-registration is required.  Simply sign-on and register by 6:40 p.m.

A convention card must be posted on BBO.

If you require a mentor, want to mentor and need a partner, or have questions, please contact mlinkins@swbell.net.   We are likewise looking for a regular substitute mentor pair to play for free if an odd number of pairs is registered:  then we can avoid robots.

And guess what?  You can play in BOTH Online and F2F mentor games if you wish!

Congrats to our Players with recent Big Games!
