This past weekend, Team Ivey Pro, Allen Kessler, clinched the Heartland Poker Tour (HPT) Player of the Year. The man known as “Chainsaw” or “Complainsaw” grinded his way to six cashes and three final tables in 2013. Kessler will enjoy the spoils of his title in 2014 where he gets 6 free HPT Main Event buy-ins and 5 nights stay at each stop. No word if there are buffet coupons included.
As a result, Kessler and his sometime nemesis, tournament director Matt Savage, exchanged messages which confirms that Kessler will likely be a Shooting Star at the 2014 Bay 101 World Poker Tour stop.
