Phil Gordon leaving Celebrity Poker Showdown

A link from a link from a link says that Phil Gordon's contract with Celebrity Poker Showdown is up, and he won't be back for another season. He's quoted in All In as saying:

I no longer have any contracted obligations to the producers of Celebrity Poker Showdown, so I am ready to move on… After 42 episodes of Celebrity Poker, I just want to see people play in turn, bet more than $200 into a $5K pot, and know when they have the nuts. Nothing would give me greater pleasure than saying ‘Phil Hellmuth loses another big pot, and it looks like he’s ready to implode!’ on national television.

CardSquad.com is pushing for Wil Wheaton to replace him. That'd be hawesome.
