Lamont Jones - The Gist of Bid Whist

We talk with Lamont Jones about his upcoming book, "The Gist of Bid Whist." A boxing business attorney and executive, Lamont Jones maintains that the deals most meaningful to him are not those he’s negotiated or litigated on behalf of boxing managers, promoters, or champions. Instead, the contracts that most make his heart sing are those he enters and defends against at the card table, playing Bid Whist. Jones believes that card games connect people and that the rich story of Bid Whist is one that deserves to be widely known.
