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.

Does anybody knows what is the reason of death? Some say drugs, some say alcohol, some say he fall in depresion and kill himself... I realy want to know because he was so young... 35 years... he could got at least 35 more... RIP
