Chainsaw Wins The Battle At The Bayou
December 21, 2021

Tournament poker rounder and PokerRoad favorite, Allen "Chainsaw" Kessler, showed all the doubters recently when he took down the 2009, $3,000 buy-in, Harrah's Bayou Poker Challenge Championship- A World Series of Poker Satellite Event.

For the victory over 79 other competitors, Kessler earned a gold circuit ring, entry into the $10,000 buy-in WSOP Main Event (plus a $1,000 for expenses), over $70,000 in cash and maybe- just possibly- that elusive "red pro" status on the PokerRoad Forums.

The final table finish positions for Event #11, The Bayou Poker Challenge Championship, were as follows:

1st.  Allen "Chainsaw" Kessler- $70,976

2nd.  Ed Corrado- $44,360

3rd.  Moutray McLaren- $28,279

4th.  Jim McBride- $19,262

5th.  Michael "Car Wash" Schneider- $16,080

6th.  Justin "Lockdowntex" Allen- $13,308

7th.  Ben "the Destroyer" Mintz- $11,090

8th.  Will "the Monkey" Souther- $9,426

9th.  Phil Hall- $8,317
