Hey guys,

Welcome to 2016 and we don't have to wait long for a HUUUGGGEEE story.

As the thread title suggests, Ike Haxton has decided not to renew his contract with PokerStars citing the changes in the VIP system as the reason.

You can read about his announcement at this 2+2 thread.

The thread has already received a wide variety of responses with most supporting his decision. However, other questions have been raised.

So what do you think? Is it as straightforward as it seems or could there be other reasons?
