Kessler vs. the Playground Club

Kessler vs. the Playground Club

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Allen Kessler isn't afraid to speak his mind when it comes to his grievances with the poker world, but last night he received an unexpected reply from one of his latest targets.

After raising a concern about the level of rake the Playground Poker Club was taking for its $3,000 tournaments, the American pro soon became embroiled in a back-and-forth tweeting war with the venue's social media team.

The response from Playground was not only direct, but somewhat sharp:

The unexpected retort not only left Kessler reeling, but many members of the community wondering if the Canadian poker venue had lost all sense of customer service.

Sensing that its tweet had caused an adverse reaction, Playground Poker Club moved to offer an apology to Kessler and the community, but reiterated that the former had held a personal vendetta against them for that past two years.
