Chad Brown Passes Away Aged 52

RIP on cross

We all knew it was just a matter of time since news spread of Chad Browns’ condition deteriorating massively last week due to his three year long battle with cancer, and now sadly it has been confirmed that he has in fact passed away.

His death was recorded at 1.15am this morning in New York at the Calvary Hospital Hospice at the age of 52.

Chad Brown was born in New York back in 1961 and had an early career in minor league baseball and worked as an actor and model before turning to the love of his life in poker back in 1993 when he turned professional.

That career saw him cash a monstrous 38 times at the WSOP and a number of times on the other big tours such as the WPT and EPT. This brought him career earnings at the felt of $3.6 million though ne never won the WSOP bracelet he had always dreamed of.

Despite not winning one, the WSOP last week awarded him an honouree bracelet, the first time this has ever been done, in recognition of what he had done for the poker industry as a whole.

As you can imagine, there was an outpouring of sadness, respect and love given to Brown and his family through Twitter.
