Being a marketing type myself I surmise that Points Breaks is to boost recognition of new or under performing IHG properties. With that being said I am happy to report that the IHG properties in my neck of the woods (Texas) must be doing great. There are only four properties offering a Points Break here.

Not sure what the "points break" idea is actually for. I agree with you, the IHG properties must be doing well.
Looking at the lists from a couple of years ago, there were way more hotels on the list. Also the locations for the hotels were way better. Over the years the quarterly list has shrunk down to maybe a 100 hotels worldwide and dropping down to half after the first day.
