"Don't read this book! If everyone followed the instructions in this book I'd have to find a new line of work. P.S. If you see a long haired homeless guy sleeping on a park bench, please give him a dollar."

With the surge of interest in poker, Lee Jones finally left the Silicon Valley computer world and joined the poker industry. At this writing, he is the poker room manager for PokerStars.com, a leading online poker site. His favorite part of that job is talking with and meeting PokerStars customers. His other interests include writing, scuba diving, trout fishing, and performing music. He has been trying to master the resophonic guitar (also known as the “Dobro”) for the past four years. He and his wife, Lisa, live in San Jose. At the time of publication, their older son David is a college senior and younger son John is a high school senior. Lisa teaches voice in their home, and all four of them play music and scuba dive together.
