Playground Poker Club to Allen Kessler: Don’t Like Us, Don’t Play Here

Kessler gets the Canadian cold shoulder.

Kessler gunna Kessler, you know?

What that means that if there’s a leak in a structure or he thinks your poker room is charging too much vig – Kessler is going to call that out as he sees fit. It’s rarely tactful, often times crude – but it’s what he does. The poker world just kind of accepts it, maybe cracks a joke and moves on.

This time though, when he called out Canada’s Playground Poker Club, which is hosting the upcoming stop of the World Poker Tour, he didn’t exactly get the standard customer service response.

Don’t like it, don’t play here. Boom. Not exactly the stereotypical Canadian good guy reply one might expect. Also, pretty terse for public response.

Kessler goes on to claim that the Playground Poker Room is “stealing hundreds of thousands in extra fees” from poker players.

As it turns out though, the Playground Poker Club has a bit of a feud with Chainsaw and they feel like they’ve just had enough of getting Kessled (™).

And it ended right there.

Oh wait, no it didn’t – Kessler took to snap clicking the RT button and the Playground heard an earful from Kessler’s supporters:

And the hits just keep coming.

So, what do you think? Is Kessler out of line here by making a big deal about fees or does Playground Poker owe “The Chainsaw” an apology? Let us know!

The partypoker WPT Montreal event starts on November 20th with the first of 3 starting flights.
