His career earnings exceed $3.87 million with an excess of $1.97 million in earnings at the WSOP and WSOP Circuit combined.
Kessler started playing poker in college and in the 1980s he spent time in Atlantic City playing slot machines. When the casinos offered poker in the 1990s, Kessler played high-stakes games with players like John Hennigan, Cyndy Violette, Nick Frangos, and Phil Ivey.
After years of experience at the cash tables he started playing tournament poker and in 2001 finished 16th in the 2001 WSOP 5K Omaha Hi-Lo Split 8 or Better. His first final table at the WSOP came in 2005 where he finished 2nd to Todd Brunson in the $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo.
At the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP), Kessler had a total of 9 cashes, setting the record for most cashes in that year’s series. This included his biggest career cash of $276,485 when he finished 2nd to Frank Kassela in the $10K Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 Championship.

As of January 2020, his total live tournament winnings are $3,875,189.
Nickname and other activities
Kessler was given the nickname ‘The Chainsaw’ at a 2007 WPT Foxwoods Casino event because of his intimidating playing style. The badge is quite the contradiction considering that Allen is generally considered one of the biggest nits in the game of poker and is always looking to increase his equity as a tournament grinder.
He is a fan of playing penny slots and video poker often tweeting out photos of his notable wins. Rumor has it that he once played penny slots for 37 hours straight. 
The Mid-State Poker Tour’s Main Event tournament structure was designed by Allen Kessler and is identified as ‘Chainsaw Approved’.
The term ‘Chainsaw Approved’ is now commonly used in the tournament poker community to refer to an event whose blind structure and fees are a good value for the player.
Kessler’s complaints, along with other players, actually effected a change in the blind structure for some of the 2015 WSOP events according to an interview with Tournament Director Jack Effel.

Slot Machine Private Ownership in Oregon
It is legal to own a slot machine privately in the state of Oregon if it is 25 years old or older.
Gaming Control Board in Oregon
The Oregon Lottery regulates VLT-style gaming machines at non-tribal retailers. The Lottery’s 1992 video poker lottery terminal network was the first centrally controlled gaming system in the U.S. In 2005, the VLT network added Class III Vegas-style line games for slots.
Eight out of Oregon’s nine federally-recognized American Indian tribes have negotiated tribal-state gaming compacts. Regulation of tribal gaming in Oregon is by the Oregon State Police and the Tribal Gaming Commissions of each individual tribe.
The Oregon Tribal Gaming Alliance (OTGA) is a coalition of these tribes which own and operate casinos in Oregon. In 2015, tribal gaming accounted for less than 32% of all gaming conducted in Oregon. Nearly two-thirds of gaming takes place at 2,550 commercial sites.
