    I really hope it is to protect Ruben's name from the press, and not the other reason.

    He deserved that win, I would be so disappointed with TPCi if they did what I think they did.

    The Pokémon Company International expects its players to maintain high standards of behaviour conducive to the family-friendly environment that we foster. The Pokémon Company International conducts full investigations into any matters where we believe that a player has failed to maintain these standards, and take appropriate action when necessary. In this case, we have found that unacceptable behaviour did take place, and have taken the appropriate steps in response.

    Thank you,

    Pretty sure if they did disqualify him he wouldn't be able to play for the entire season. I can see this happening even in the case they have what people here are reporting is the real story. You don't conduct yourself in the way he did as a tournament winner.
