Casey Reese, the 20-year-old son of late poker legend Chip Reese, was found dead Monday as a result of an apparent drug overdose.

Poker pro Daniel Negreanu had this to say on the Full Contact Poker forums:

I was at Bellaagio 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 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.
Doyle Brunson said on his blog that Casey's death may have been from an overdose on prescription drugs.
