    An appropriate dedication for a legendary poker player

    Only days after the tragic news that legendary poker player Chip Reese (56) had been found dead in his home from as yet undisclosed causes, the World Series of Poker organisers, Harrah's, has decided to honour the memory of a great player. To do this, a trophy for the $50 000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. event will in future be named after him.

    The $50 000 event was first added to the WSOP schedule in 2006. It was won by Reese, making him a three-time bracelet winner and securing his place in the WSOP history books.

    "A true gentleman and the youngest person admitted to the Poker Hall of Fame, Chip Reese was recognized by his peers as the most successful player in the biggest mixed cash games of all time," said WSOP commissioner Jeffrey Pollack in announcing the trophy.

    "But he was also a great tournament player with three WSOP bracelets, including one for his historic victory in the inaugural $50 000 buy-in H.O.R.S.E. tournament.

    "As a tribute to this great player who embodied the very best of our game, next year's $50 000 H.O.R.S.E World Championship will be played in Chip's honour and memory," Pollack said. "And the winner will receive the 'David "Chip" Reese Award,' as well as a WSOP bracelet, to commemorate the achievement."
