Because it involves Chip Reese playing quarter slots for 24hrs. I would have believed it if he had paid someone to play them for him. As told < 1% chance it's true IMO.

In that case, sounds like you'll be happy to offer 100:1 for confirmation?

I think this went on for a few months before someone said something.

I prolly butchered the story a bit, feel free to fix it.

Bag was still there when he got to his destination iirc
Ehhh, great stories but I'm going to need confirmation from a 2nd source before I believe them. Let's wait a bit and maybe another poster can confirm hearing these stories.

Moot. Chip is the only one that could confirm it.

He is the person that I always wanted to be like in poker. A pleasure to have someone to look up to in the world of poker. A class act and one of the greatest ever.

RIP Chip.

The Biggest Game In Town - A. Alvarez (pg. 40-41)

The degree to which Reese fails to think about these things is famous around town. He is rumored to have lost in his own house, every piece of jewelry he has ever owned, and for a period to have paid without question a monthly water bill of two thousand dollars. After some time, the water company discovered the pipe supplying his house had broken and was flooding the area for acres around. Reese himself had not noticed.
Gambling Wizards Rirchard W. Munchkin (pg. 56)

I came home for a day or two, and now I was going to the airport and I had $200,000 cash in a briefcase. I was running late. I left my house and raced to the airport. I was almost there when I realized I'd left the money at the house. I wasn't that concerned because there were other planes, but I thought, ah, maybe I can make it. I raced back to my house and pulled into the driveway. I jumped out and saw the briefcase sitting on top of my car.

Chip is someone I think we should all look to as an example of how to conduct yourselves at and away from the table. A real gentleman and professional. RIP Chip.

Re: Your favorite Chip Reese story?

I played comp. Baseball with Chips son Casey. Don't remember too much about Chip except he had an awesome house was always really nice. He treated the other parents on the team as equals and would buy everyone lunch or dinner when we were traveling.

I do remember at a tourny in Orem,_Utah we went into his room to get Casey and Chip and another person were playing some card game and there was a lot of money on the table.

RIP CHIP
RIP CASEY

Hadn't seen this thread before, and though I'm not shocked given his performance elsewhere, it's really disheartening to see Parlay Slow's efforts here. Very consistent with his complete lack of self-awareness in OOT.
