Gavin Smith had a fun-loving personality and was always pleasant with the poker media. On Monday night, the Canadian poker pro passed away unexpectedly in his sleep. He was 50-years-old. The cause of death is currently unknown.
I have not seen much about him but that´s not what is important. He has done many incredible things in life as probably everybody in the world does. Nevertheless I wish all the best for him and his relatives. The world won´t forget him! He has done his share for humanity!

Gavin used to play with us in West Virginia at Jim Boyd's place before he blew up and became famous. He wrote an amazing article called 'In defense of the call' which I will never forget as I agreed with his poker philosophy. He was always a gentleman and will be missed.

That's very sad news... he seems like a fun and nice guy..fir poker... it's very sad for his children I think he had two young children also............ ....i saw on facebook i think,,, they started a go fund me for his children...
RIP Gavin. Way too young. Prayers go out too his children, family and friends. I enjoyed watching Gavin play poker. He always seemed to be having a great time, and certainly made the table fun. His spirit will be missed.
Being away from poker for awhile, I still recognize some of the older
poker pro's that I used to watch on tv from time to time. Gavin Smith
is one of them. Not knowing Gavin personally I always got the impression
that he was one of the good guys, and watching some of the Youtube
videos out there, I reinforce my statement. I feel for his friends and family,
and hope they are coping well with his sudden loss. A sad day indeed for
poker. Gone but not forgotten......
Yes this was a sad story he left behind kids to which is always sad. It look like Gvain always had fun while playing poker atleast when he played on TV when he played on WPT and some of the poker shows on TV seem like a good guy to me. So hope you RIP Gavin .
first time when i seen Gavin was video poker after dark, where hi won Ivey! It really impressed me. and only i decided to join the community and in the first branch I was met with such news...my compassion for friends and familie
It is a pity that this happened. Let the earth rest in peace. We all go to the next world, which I do not wish to all my relatives and members of the forum. I love everyone very much and I am very sorry to lose my acquaintance or friend.
I wish everyone happiness and good luck to everyone on this forum, I love and respect everyone.
Live happily ever after.
JESUS im 49, RIP GAVIN, something missing from poker these days are recognizable names on the TV, (I guess cause there is no tv LOL) but this is one of them. A time I totally missed in poker but seems like a great place in time
