Poker Legend ‘Chip’ Reese Dies At 56

Poker Hall of Fame David “Chip” Reese, who has built a reputation as one of the greatest cash game players of all time, died on Tuesday at the age of 56. Liz, who has a career-high prize money of nearly $3 million, died in her sleep and was found by her son early Tuesday at her Las Vegas home. Liz was suffering from pneumonia, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Reece was born in Dayton, Ohio, and graduated from Dartmouth College. In a chapter dedicated to him in the legendary book Doyle Brunson’s Super System, Brunson recounts how Liz worked as a manufacturer’s representative for a year after graduating from college, and then he and a friend visited a Las Vegas poker room with $800 one weekend. They doubled their bank loans in one day and Liz found a permanent home in Las Vegas.

Brunson wrote in his book, “[Chip] is not only a fundamentally sound player, but he also has the best natural instinct for what to do in the difficult situations of any card player I’ve ever sat at the table with,” Leith helped with the chapter of Seven Card Stud. 온라인카지노

Reese went on to win three World Series championship bracelets. In the 2006 World Series of Poker, Reese outlasted 143 players and won a total of $1.716 million in the 50,000 H.O.R.S.E. event. In 1991, at the age of 40, he became the youngest player to be inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame.

“Many people think of Chip as the greatest cash player to ever live, but he was also a legendary World Series player in poker,” said WSOP commissioner Jeffrey Pollock. “A victory in the first $50,000 Purchase Championship in 2006 earned him a third WSOP bracelet and made him a part of WSOP’s legend forever.”
