RE: Casey Reese, Son of Chip, Dies

While the cause of death is being investigated, Doyle Brunson wrote in a blog post today that it was a prescription drug overdose.

It seems like yesterday when my nephew called and gave me a message that made my blood run cold, “I think Chip just died” he told me.

It happened again yesterday, only this time it was Chip’s only son, Casey Reese. Casey was found in his apartment from an apparent overdose of prescription drugs. I had seen Casey a few days ago and he looked great. He was very handsome and extremely personable. I will always remember the closeness between Chip and Casey.

My deepest condolences to the Reese family. I feel like I’ve let Chip down but I don’t know what I could have done to help Casey.

    I knew Casey Reese. He was a close friend of mine and my brother. We played ball together and hung out together. I couldn’t believe it when I found out that he had died by drug overdose.I had also been good friends with Chip as well to. They were both wonderful people, and were very fun to be around.

    Chip was the greatest player and I played against them all. More importantly, he was a good man.
