The poker world was rocked to its core when Stud legend, and arguably the best mixed game player of all time, Chip Reese, passed away from complications following pneumonia in 2007.
His son Casey, a skilled baseball pitcher who cheered his father to victory in the inaugural $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event, took his father’s untimely death very badly. He began to experiment with drugs and this tragically led to his death last week.Daniel Negreanu, a friend of the Reese family, said: "I was at Bellagio last night when we all got the news. Very sad. Everyone took it pretty hard. Kid was 20 years old, an incredible baseball pitcher, super smart, good looking kid... very sad. Chau [Giang] was a very good friend of both Chip and Casey and while he came down to play poker he just couldn't do it. It was a shock. People were both sad, and also pretty angry at the same time."
