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.

Allen is a poker genius
Matt can't take constructive criticism.
Matt should be relived of duties.
