FOR BEGINNERS AND NEWER PLAYERS

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, Dawn Lee will be teaching classes starting in September, 2019.

  • *Beginner 1, instructor: Dawn Lee - Saturday morning, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS or people who want to start over from scratch. New Class starts on January 18th.
  • Beginner 2, instructor John Ramos - Tuesday morning, from 10:15 am to 12:15 pm. Continues where Beginner 1 left off.
  • Beginner 2+, instructor: John Ramos - Wednesday morning, from 10:15 am to 12:15 pm. For students who have learned constructive bidding and are ready to move on to competitive bidding.
  • *Beginner 2, instructor: Dawn Lee  - Sunday morning, from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. A "continuing education" series on a wide variety of bidding and play topics.

*The cost is $15 per lesson. These are playing lessons, so you will practice what you learn.

Supervised Play

We also have supervised play sessions. You can come on your own or with a partner or foursome and play hands with other new players in a non-competitive environment. With the help of volunteers who can give you real-time advice, it's your opportunity to practice and see practical examples of what you've learned. The cost per session is $12. This is held on Saturdays from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.

John Ramos

John Ramos learned bridge as a child and has been an active tournament player since 1991. He is an ACBL Diamond Life Master whose best finishes in Open National Events were 5th in the 2017 Keohane Open Swiss Teams, 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.
