Lee Jones (author)

Lee Jones is an online poker executive and the author of Winning Low-Limit Hold 'em.[1] He also contributes a monthly column to Bluff Magazine.[2]

Jones earned his B.S. in Computer Science from Duke University in North Carolina in 1978, and his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland in 1983.

From October 2003 to April 2007, Jones worked as the cardroom manager of the commentary for EPT events, while also still serving as a consultant for PokerStars.[5]

In April 2008 Jones announced he was leaving EPT to become COO of CardRunners, a poker instructional website.[6] He left Cardrunners in 2009.

In May 2009 Jones signed on with the Cake Poker Network's flagship member Cake Poker as the Card Room Manager.[7] He was also acting as a player advocate at Cake Poker.[8] He resigned from Cake Poker in December 2010 citing "strategic decisions with which I'm not comfortable" [9]

In 2012, Jones returned to work with PokerStars when they acquired FullTiltPoker.

In 2006 Jones and a former math lecturer named James Kittock (now at Google) developed a system for playing heads-up that they called the Sit and Go Endgame System (SAGE). This drew a mention in the New York Times poker column.[10]
