EPT founder leaves PokerStars

Tags: John Duthie, leaves, part ways, pokerstars, team pokerstars pro
Posted on Wednesday, January 04, 2012 by "T".
Last Sunday, rumors that John Duthie, the man who created European Poker Tour and has $2,7 million in career tournament winnings, was no longer part of Team PokerStars Pro started circulating in different poker forums. It didn't take long before Duthie confirmed that he didn't sign a new contract after the last one expired in December 31, 2011.

or maybe there was something fishy behind his decision, but don't expect to hear this from him. as always if there is something cooking up behind the scenes- only interested parties know the info, and the rest of dudes are just left on themselves, just remember full tilt- lot's of players left with a serious tilt- full tilt that is...

So, he just said what wasn’t the reason of not renewing contract, but he “forgot” to tell everybody what was the reason. Can this have something to be with his $2,7 million career tournament winnings? This looks a lot of money, but it would be possible that it would be expected a bigger value coming from him. Ben Lamb did $5 million in one year and it is now on the top, Duthie has only made hald in his entire career. It’s a matter of perspective…

I think he is leaving in a time that, although world is submersed in crisis, is a phase of big growth in poker, which means EPT can become bigger. I truly believe this. The game is each time more recognized as skill game, with lots of factors that can turn it into a pro game all around the world. I believe EPT will not suffer a bit with John Duthie’s abandon, he is the one who will miss it.

more a jumping off, probably have their reasons and feeding stuffs not renew the contract, on the plus side there will probably be a renewal in pro team players, the chance for everybody who is showing its full potential by there
