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.
