    Default Poker legend Chip Reese dies at 56

    Lots of poker outlets reporting the news that Chip Reese died earlier today at age 56. Reese was an outstanding player, winning the inaugural $50,000 HORSE event at the WSOP last year.

    Buzzy hasn't seen any cause of death other than "a brief illness," but will be back with more details as they become available.

    The World Series of Poker e-mailed this statement to me:

    WSOP’s Statement on Passing of Poker Legend ‘Chip’ Reese


    LAS VEGAS – December 4, 2007 – Harrah’s Entertainment, Inc. and the World Series of PokerŪ issued the following statement today to express condolences to the family, friends and fans of poker great David “Chip” Reese, who died today following a brief illness.

    “Many consider Chip the greatest cash-game player who ever lived, but he was also a World Series of Poker legend,” said WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack. “His victory in the inaugural $50,000 buy-in HORSE championship in 2006 won him his third WSOP bracelet.and made him a part of WSOP lore forever.

    “On behalf of the WSOP and Harrah’s Entertainment, I want to extend to his family our deepest sympathies,” Pollack said.
