PokerStars Meets With Player Representatives

Player representatives traveled to Amaya headquarters for a meeting with PokerStars executives on Monday, according to posts on social media.

The topic at hand will undoubtedly be the recent changes to the PokerStars VIP Rewards program that have sparked controversy and prompted players to stage multiple boycotts of the site.

Players traveling to Montreal include vocal leader Dani Stern and former PokerStars sponsored Pro Isaac Haxton. Haxton resigned his position as a player ambassador after learning of the changes that would reduce benefits for high volume players were being implemented in the middle of a two-year promotional scheme.
