Chad wasn't one of the nicest guys in poker. He was the nicest guy in poker."Poker author Nolan Dalla added, "Is there anybody who has had a better 52 years or given more in 52 years than Chad Brown?" Dalla said. "Chad lived to a 100."The tournament itself raised over $71,000 which was donated to the TJ Martell Foundation, a cancer research charity.
