Friends and Family Remember The Life & Times Of “Downtown” Chad Brown

Yesterday, the friends and family of well-liked poker professional Chad Brown gathered at Binions in Las Vegas for a memorial service that remembered Chad on the felt, on the field and how he lived his life on his own terms.

Vanessa Russo, Nolan Dalla, Todd Brunson and Phil Hellmuth are but a few who shared kind words about Chad and pointed out that, at age 52, Chad was a man who lived with no regrets and was a man of such merit that the WSOP graced him with an honorary bracelet, the first and only time they have done that in 45 years.
