It's been a great year for poker player David "Chino" Rheem.  Having finished 7th at this year's World Series of Poker and cashing out with $1.8 million, the 28-year old poker pro from Los Angeles, California, just won the 2008 WPT Doyle Brunson Classic Championship held at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

The reward:  A cool $1.5 mil.

Ryan Lucches of CardPlayer.com writes that Rheem had to fight his way through a field of 497 players over six days of poker to claim the top prize in the tournament.

"But it was his final opponent that proved to be the most difficult. It took Rheem 151 hands of heads-up play to emerge with the championship title.

 

"The field was stacked with a rich array of professionals that gathered in Vegas to participate in the last major poker tournament of 2008. It was also during this tournament that John Phan clinched the 2008 Card Player Player of the Year title. When Michael Binger busted on day 3 Phan became the seventh player in history to win the award."

The finishing positions were as follows:

Seat 1: Chino Rheem -- 4,240,000

Seat 2: Amnon Filippi -- 2,750,000

Seat 3: Hoyt Corkins -- 2,295,000

Seat 4: Steve Sung -- 5,885,000

Seat 5: Justin Young -- 2,410,000

Seat 6: Evan McNiff -- 4,805,000

As of 2008, his total lifetime live poker tournament winnings exceed $4,000,000
