Drawing Dead, Reese Forced to Fold

Poker legend David "Chip" Reese, who won three World Series of Poker bracelets, has died from symptoms of pneumonia. He was 56.

"I knew him for 35 years, I never saw him get mad or raise his voice," Doyle Brunson said. "He had the most even disposition of anyone I've ever met. He's certainly the best poker player that ever lived."

"We went to look for the Titanic. We went to look for Noah's Ark. We were two of the biggest suckers whenever it came to business, but we both had poker to fall back on," Brunson said. "Thank God we could play, so we always survived."
