And somewhere in the darkness, the gambler he broke even; But in his final words. I found an ace that I could keep. Chad Batista folds at 34 after long struggle with alcohol; sometimes the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep.
What Chad Batista actually died from was liver and kidney failure. Chad fell and passed out and had bleeding in the brain. It was from an over-consumption of alcohol. Chad drank to a degree that his body just shut down on him. He was so small in size, so there wasn’t a lot there to work with. He kind of threw in the towel and gave in. He didn’t want to seek professional help. We fought for years about getting help. He would never take a prescription drug. He lived life on his own terms until the end. He struggled and alcohol was his escape. In the end, the alcohol won… He was special to a lot of people, and so if this wakes up one person to stop drinking excessively, then this wasn’t all for nothing.
Card Player : What do you think the poker community should and will remember about him?
Louise Batista: For me, and my family, we would like for them to remember Chad as that young man with a sharp tongue, aggressive play and a heart of gold. You either loved him or you hated him, there was no in between.
*From August 22, 2007 to July 2, 2008, Chad was the #1-ranked tournament player at PocketFives.com.*
