Sad story, after so many glories. I am sure he would have much more to give and receive from the poker community. Nice results, third in WCOP isn't easy. Let's just remember the good things he left!

i didn't really knew his poker career or never heard of him but anyone who is making a living out of poker and he is called professional , he gotta be good and skillful
may he rest in peace and may his family get past this sad time

Chad Batista is not a player I had seen before and I think all of his tournament play was in the US but 35 is such a young age and I feel very sad for his family.He had some great results and winning close to million is not easy.

"RIP Chad Batista, one of my first friends in poker. He was a troubled soul, but had a big heart. A natural talent!"

"I met Chad at the 2007 WSOP we smoked a J together, very friendly. He threatened to murder me in the chat box a few months later."

Matt Savage @SavagePoker said:
"Chad Batista and I texted often about things that bothered him in poker. Always seemed to have a lot of pain but also a ton of passion!"


RIP
Chad Batista
