Tweet Relief: Blocking Allen Kessler
A feud between legendary structure-fanatic Allen Kessler and respected tournament director Matt Savage is reaching new levels on Twitter.
It all started with a lengthy Facebook post by Allen Kessler yesterday critiquing World Poker Tour Montreal.
You can check out the complete post here but it centered around U.S. players having to pay a 4% currency exchange fee, problems with the structure (guess that was a given) and racing off chips without players present.
Keep in mind, this is all about one of the most well-attended WPT events in years, which seemed to be deemed a success by almost everyone involved.
Matt Savage referenced the post in a Tweet, Kessler called him unprofessional and the rest is history.
Here’s a collection of the most incendiary and funny Tweets surrounding the argument.
For @savagepoker to insult me directly on twitter and then block my account rather than respond to legitimate concerns, is unprofessional— Allen Kessler (@AllenKessler) November 28, 2012
A guy at my table just thanked me for all the good I do for the poker community. I really appreciate that.— Allen Kessler (@AllenKessler) November 28, 2012
@allenkessler It was a first event, and the host casino and the WPT listened to ALL complaints. You’ve been heard. Wait until next year.— BJ Nemeth (@BJNemeth) November 28, 2012
@allenkessler I think I speak for a lot of us -- NOT EVERY TOURNAMENT CAN BE AN ETERNAL F'ING NIT FEST BUILT TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS.— Matt Waldron (@MattCWaldron) November 27, 2012
Allen is a poker genius
Matt can't take constructive criticism.
Matt should be relived of duties.
Allen knows poker
Matt is a getting bad at running poker tournaments anymore.
Jesus christ Allen give it up for a second for christ's sake
complainsaw is the worst
