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!

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.

"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!"
