David Y. "Chino" Rheem (born April 15, 1980) is a poker player from Los Angeles, California.[1] In November 2008, Rheem finished in seventh place at the 2008 World Series of Poker Main Event,[2][3] cashing for $1,772,650. He went out of this event on A K to Peter Eastgate's A Q with Eastgate flopping a pair of queens on a board of Q 5 7 9 4. He is also the winner of the World Poker Tour's Season VII Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic, earning $1,538,730.[4] Rheem had five previous WSOP cashes, his best result being a runner-up finish to Allen Cunningham in a $1,000 no limit Texas hold 'em with rebuys event in 2006. He cashed in the 2005 World Series of Poker Main Event, finishing 193rd place. He also made a final table earlier in 2008, finishing in fifth place in the $5,000 Mixed Hold'em event.[5]

In August 2011, Rheem won the $20,000 buy-in 6-Max No Limit Hold'em tournament at the inaugural Epic Poker League earning $1,000,000.[6][7] One week later his membership in the league was placed on probation.[8] Admittingly owing several "fellow" poker pros considerable debts, he has since made payments on said debts.[9]

He won the 2013 World Poker Tour Championship event, beating Erick Lindgren heads up, to win $1,150,297.

As of 2013, his total lifetime live poker tournament winnings exceed $7,100,000.[10]
