Funeral Services Set for Chip Reese

by Lou on December 6, 2007

Funeral services for Chip Reese will be held at the Palms Northwest Mortuary & Cemetery, located at 6701 N. Jones in Las Vegas, on Friday, December 7, at 2 p.m.
David “Chip” Reese was born March 28, 1951, in Dayton. He died early Tuesday morning, December 4, 2007 in Las Vegas. Reese showed signs of walking pneumonia and complained the night before of having flu like symptoms. Reese was admitted to the hospital and died during the night in his sleep.
A regular player in the “The Big Game,” Reese competed at the world’s highest limits. He flew below the general public’s radar, however, because he tended to eschew poker tournaments. But he entered and won the inaugural $50,000 buy-in HORSE tournament at the 2006 World Series of Poker, following a six-hour heads-up final match against Andy Bloch.
After the event, his close friend Doyle Brunson stated,” There’s really no one more deserving of this title. He’s got to be one of the best all around poker players I’ve ever known.” Brunson added, “He’s also just a good man.”
