IveyPoker's Team Ivey announced on Monday, March 18th, 2013, that Allen Kessler is on the team and that brings the number of the team up to 30 members — Phil Ivey makes it 31.

Kessler's live career tournament earnings rack up to more than $2.6 million with 29 World Series of Poker cashes and 18 World Poker Tour Championship event cashes. Kessler's biggest single score, to date, was at the 2010 WSOP when he took home $276,485 after placing runner-up to Frank Kassela in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo Championship.

Before Kessler took to making poker his full-time job, he earned a dual degree in marketing and management, and was a marketing researcher. Kessler's analytical and mathematical mind had to have given him a huge edge when the Pennsylvania native began frequenting Atlantic City card rooms where he worked his way up through the cash games and then went to the tournament circuit. Kessler's live tournament cashes ring up at almost 200.
