Todd Brunson and Doyle Brunson have issued official statements on the passing of Chip Reese.

"I have lost one of my oldest and dearest friends today," said Doyle Brunson. "He was one of the most unique individuals I have ever known, and poker has lost one of the greats today."

"I have lost a mentor and friend today," said Todd Brunson. "He was like a family member to me."

The members of the Brunson family request that they be allowed to grieve the passing of their dear friend in private. Funeral arrangement and charity donation information will be released, along with an official statement, in the next couple of days.

Todd Brunson has asked that all media requests be sent to lara.miller@cardplayer.com.

I am very sorry to hear about the death of Chip Reese but does his family really need donations. I thought he was a big cash game winner.

you callous bastards. Perhaps the donations are to charity.
I hope others are a bit kinder to you when someone in your family or friends dies.

asking for donations from a high profittable magazine company and "one of the greatest high stake poker players" is the classless most disturbing thing i have ever heard

It Is so Heartless and COLD on some of the post I've read UNREAL. It plainly stated (Funeral arrangement and donation information will be released, along with an official statement, in the next couple of days.) I'll go out and say now that the donations I'm SURE will be to a Charity, and I'll Gladly Donate. HEARTLESS People how some can look yourself In the mirror after some of the post Is beyond Me...

I know you folks are a bunch of degenerates, but really, this is a new low.

Donations are common upon a death. This is not about Chip's family needing money. In most cases the family designates a charity to receive the funds. Donations are made as a memorium to honor the deceased.

If you do not feel moved to honor Chip, then please at least have the courtesy to not display your ignorance in public.

You guys are a bunch of clowns and know nothing about Chip or death in general. People who pass on usually have donations set up usually if the wanted to honor them in some way like in the form of putting their name on a book at the library...that costs money, but most caring people do things like that in their honor, I wouldn't expect any of you clowns to know anythinng about Chip or courtesy...get a life man. CardPlayer is a great source of poker news and does a great job of following players and respecting their lives. You really think someone's trying to profit from his death? Grow up. Chip was a great human being and great for the game....something that is missing in general for the poker world. He had all the elements.
