Danny Ryan (the_d__ry) might want to contribute. I'm not in touch with him but afaik he was one of Chad's closer friends.

Hey guys, we will be conducting interviews in LV from the beginning of July, up until the start of the Main Event. To all of those who have contacted me, or expressed interest, I will send you more details within the next week or two. If you feel like you can help us tell Chad's story, and we have not yet spoken, please post in here or drop me a PM. If you know of anyone who might be helpful, but is not on 2+2, please put us in touch. Thank to all of you who have already referred friends to us, or helped us make connections; this thread has been invaluable.

Re: In search of friends and Family of Chad Batista (lilholdem954)

Having the 954 in common and battling in online tournaments, Chad and I casually knew of each other. When we both lived in Vegas and even after he moved back to FL, I would occasionally send him a helpful message regarding a variety of things. Clearly from the beginning he was a man with a lot of demons.

Just as many say is true with drugs, coming down from the high of once being an online crusher was painful for Chad. He had a $7k/mo minimum nut and after moving back to FL things never stabilized. He had to sell the Lexus he had in Vegas, and he simply wasn't rebounding.

The last I heard from Chad, he out of the blue called me a Jew bagel repeatedly on FB. I have no idea what prompted that. Maybe seeing my name on FB reminded him of the way things used to be with Bluff and Gamble and his gf in his new, luxury apartment near South Point.
