Epic Poker League: A new rule will exclude unethical players

David "Chino" Rheem has just been awarded the title of the best American player after his performance at the Main Event of the Epic Poker League 2011. During this major tournament held in the "city that never sleeps," Chino won the championship ring and a nice sum of $ 1 million. Behind this impressive performance, however, Chino is involved in a case of scam and bad faith that tarnish his reputation. According to the exchange of discussion on, this poker player of Asian origin has multiple loans since 2009 and he hasn't yet repaid them. Chino indeed ripped off Will Molson and Joseph "sublime" Cheong of $ 40 000 each. There is also the story of the bet not paid to Ben Lamb at the WSOP 2011. During the encasement of his gains at the last EPL, David "Chino" Rheem honored his bet with Lamb and paid his creditors but only 10% of the total amount borrowed.

But even if this action showed the willingness of Chino to repay his debts, the organizers of the Epic Poker League does consider this cases as solved. The case of David "Chino" Rheem was taken as a jurisprudence for players who want to participate later in the Epic Poker League. Indeed, the Standards of Conduct Committee of the EPL militates for ethics of the tournament and especially of poker. So from now, the behavior and the history of each players will be considered case by case. Players who are soaked in a case of cheating, scam or considered as not playing in a professional manner will be therefore excluded publicly from now.
