Everyone’s favorite poker room manager, Lee Jones, resigned from his position at pokerstars today.
Lee has been with PokerStars since 2003 hosting final tables with his corny one liners, dealing with countless poker players, bringing player friendly features to pokerstars, like the VIP club and higher stakes tables. His shoes will be hard to fill.
Lee Jones is still with pokerstars, but in a much less demanding position as a consultant. He’ll be representing them in major events, playing a part in the PCA, and making the occasional appearance hosting major final tables.
This is Lee’s going away speech from twoplustwo:
Hi all â€“
It is with great delight and profound regret that I announce that, effective April 1st, 2007, I will no longer be the poker room manager at PokerStars. 
The good news is that I am still going to be part of the PokerStars family. I will be working for John Duthie in the EPT, doing organization, hosting, and TV commentary. Furthermore, I will still be working as a consultant for PokerStars, helping with some PokerStars events, such as the PCA at the Atlantis and the World Cup of Poker. And I will show up sometimes at Sunday Million and WCOOP final tables.
Why the change? Well, itâ€™s a wonderful opportunity for me to expand my horizons and stretch some new muscles. I will be at all the EPT events, doing final table announcing, and commentary on the TV shows and webcasts.  I love meeting and hanging out with the players so this will be great fun for me. And it will give me time to do some other projects, including actually playing a little poker!
Of course, the regret comes from leaving a job that Iâ€™ve had, and loved, for three and a half years. Iâ€™ve gotten to watch PokerStars go from a promising enterprise in third place on the online poker ladder to the clear market leader. And working hard daily to stay there. The people at PokerStars are an extraordinary bunch and Iâ€™ve been honored to be part of that team. Iâ€™m not going to start naming names for two reasons: (1) Iâ€™d be sure to leave out a really important name, and (2) there are simply too many of them. But from the senior management to the customer service representatives, these people have become not only colleagues but friends. I will miss acutely the day-to-day interaction with them.
I will also miss the day-to-day contact with the thousands of PokerStars players that Iâ€™ve come to know via email. The support youâ€™ve given me these past years has been overwhelming and I am quite humbled by it. Furthermore, youâ€™ve been quick to provide constructive criticism when Iâ€™ve made a wrong turn, and thatâ€™s just as important. I trust that you will provide my successor  with the same support and constructive criticism that youâ€™ve given me.
But as I said, Iâ€™ll still be around. Iâ€™ll be at plenty of live events (particularly in Europe), and Iâ€™ll be occasionally posting here. Most of my posts will be signed â€œRegards, Leeâ€, indicating itâ€™s my personal opinion. If I have cause to post representing the EPT, Iâ€™ll be sure to note that.
But for now, Iâ€™ll sign off as I have since October of 2003, proud to sayâ€¦
