Lee Jones has announced that he is leaving his position as Executive Host for the European Poker Tour to take on a job as Chief Operating Officer of CardRunners.com. CardRunners.com is a poker instructional site that uses video of online play to help train new poker players, as well as offering a myriad variety of other poker tools to help out the young and aspiring poker player.
Lee Jones leaves his job as Executive host of the EPT after one year, having taken on the position in April 2007. Before that, he had spent four years as the online poker room manager for Poker Stars, his work that he is most famous for. Lee Jones made the move to CardRunners as he himself is planning a move back to the United States after his time in Europe.
