Vanessa Pays Tribute to her Ex-Husband #BB17

Vanessa has talked about her ex-husband, Chad Brown, on the live feeds a number of times.  She has brought him up in several conversations, quoting advice he gave her, and the positive impact he had on her life.

(On one occasion, she described how Chad taught her to be a better loser, an important skill for a poker professional.)

According to Wikipedia, Vanessa met Chad at the finals table at a 2006 poker tournament, and they were married in 2009, and amicably divorced in 2012.  Chad passed away in July 2014 from a rare form of cancer that impacted fat cells in his abdominal area.  In August 2014, Vanessa helped organize a poker tournament benefit in Chad's honor, and hoped to have a similar event annually, in conjunction with the kick-off of the annual World Series of Poker.

(Will she miss the event this year?  Maybe she can tape a message from the DR to pay tribute.)

The video below shows footage from the event, and features Vanessa from beginning to end.
