Biography

David "Chino" Rheem is an American poker player from Los Angeles who has amassed $12.3 million in career tournament earnings, putting him fourth on California's all-time money list.

Rheem, whose first cash dates back to 2004, earned his biggest career score at the 2008 World Series of Poker (WSOP) when he finished seventh in the $10,000 World Championship No-Limit Hold'em event for $1.8 million. Two years earlier, Rheem finished runner-up in the WSOP's $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em for $327,981 to be denied his first bracelet.

Rheem has also had tremendous success at the World Poker Tour (WPT), having earned three WPT titles throughout his career.

Rheem's first WPT was earned at the 2008 Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic, where he took down the $15,000 event for $1.5 million. In 2013, Rheem won the $20,000 WPT World Championship in Las Vegas for $1.1 million.

Rheem got his third WPT title in 2016 when he took down the $10,000 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown for $705,885.

More recently, in April 2022, Rheem took down a $15,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event at the US Poker Open for $271,350 after finishing runner-up in a $15,000 No-Limit Hold'em event on the same tour for $210,000. The next month, Rheem won the PokerGO Tour $25,000 Heads-Up Championship for $400,000.
