Wow,Chip was awsome. One of the best shows of the Circuit (back in the day when they were on Card Player) was with Chip Reese right after he won the 50K event last year. His stories were so fascinating, they were cool. Here they are if anybody wants to listen to them.Part 1 - Part 2 - RIP Chip

RIP ChipMy condolences to family and friends.

Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you is determinism; the way you play it is free will.

From PokernewsDavid 'Chip' Reese, 1951-2007Reports are quickly circulating about the sudden and untimely passing of poker legend David 'Chip' Reese overnight. Details are still emerging on Reese's shocking passing, and a complete obituary on one of poker's all-time greats will be published in the near future. Reese was a feared cash-game legend and a regular member of the 'Big Game' at the Bellagio, who focused less on tournaments than other players. Still, Reese demonstrated his poker mastery by winning the first-ever $50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event at the WSOP in 2006, his third career WSOP bracelet.

I agree with this. Chip was a great interview and definitely the best they ever did.This is a big shock... a true true poker legend, still seemingly going very strong... now suddenly dead.RIP Chip Reese

Who the hell would have added this last part on Wikipedia? Seems so tasteless even if it wasn't meant to be.Reese passed away on December 4, 2007. Close friend and fellow professional poker player Daniel Negreanu reported the news on his forum, Full Contact Poker. He did not list the cause of Reese's death. Although it is beleived by many to just be a prop bet between the two on how long it takes for someone to find Chip alive. Chip thinks he can stay under wraps for 2 years, Daniel thinks less than 6 months
