John Duthie no longer part of Team PokerStars

I've heard from a source close to John Duthie, one of the main people behind the creation of the European Poker Tour, that he is no longer part of Team PokerStars.

More information as it becomes available?

Does this mean now that the EPT will not be affiliated with Pokerstars?

He sold the EPT to Pokerstars a couple of years ago!

Re: John Duthie no longer part of Team PokerStars

Is this because he's unhappy with the new way Stars is now distributing its VPPS?

He's still the CEO of the EPT, no?

and to add to the original post: he's already deleted from the team overviews on the site

kinda sucks, he was a likeable character

yea love how pokerstars enforces the under age limit every chance they get. Only 18 and older, but when you use foul language you are chat ban for life...

pokerstars biggest hypocrites ever. In trouble with DOJ, but don't you dare say a cuss word in the chat box.

fk pokerstars up the anus

Wow is this a joke, John Duthie I salute you, takes a lot to speak out when you know there's a good chance it will cause you personal loss.

The EPT has no doubt had a maybe huge part in PS becoming so big in Europe, and is this for real, he protests (didn't realise there had been one, any link please?) and gets dumped, are PS having a bad day, not thinking straight?

If I was Barnard Tapie i'd be on the phone to him now!
