Casey Reese Dies of Medication Overdose

by Poker Team

Casey Reese, son of the late, great poker player Chip Reese, has tragically passed away. Close friend of the Reese family, Doyle Brunson, was the first to publish the news on his Facebook / blog page. Phil Hellmuth also alluded to the ‘bad news from Vegas’, on his Twitter page. It is believed he died of an accidental prescription medication overdose.

This will no doubt spark greater controversy concerning the widespread availability of prescription drugs in America, following the death of actor Heath Ledger. Legendary cash game player Chip Reese, who Brunson described as, “certainly the best poker player that ever lived”, died on December 4th 2007 of pneumonia. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends.
