The American poker pro David "Chino" Rheem became a part of history when he won the first ever Epic Poker League Main Event last week and took home $1 million, thus taking his career earning to impressive $5,37 million. But the notable win quickly fell into the shade of the "news" that Rheem owes a lot of money to different poker players. Yesterday, the Epic Poker League crew sent out a press release where they write that Rheem has violated their rules of behavior - even though his gambling debts arose before the league started.

In the press release one can also read that EPL has formed a behavior committee that will monitor Rheem and make sure that he pays off his debts with tournament and cash game winnings - regardless from which part of the world the winnings come from. The monitoring will stop as soon as Rheem has paid back all the money.
