Chino Rheem, who made it to the 2009 World Series of Poker final table, has won the inaugural Epic Poker League Main Event.

Rheem walked off with $1 million for his efforts and now has over $5.6 million in lifetime winnings. 

The controversial poker pro has come under fire for failure to honor debts related to various prop bets.  Fellow poker players have proclaimed Rheem “SCUM” on various forums across the Net.

From PokerForum.net:

A year ago, Chino asked Will Molson for $20k to play a live event, Molson accidentally shipped him $40k, Chino cashed for $150k in the event and a year later has yet to pay back saying he's broke.

Chino made some prop bets with Ben Lamb of two HU matches they were watching, he lost both but never paid.

It seems that Michael Mizrachi has covered for him lots in the past but is tired of covering for him with all his "moves." Many players actually refer to being "chino'd"

"You owe the whole city of Las Vegas money"
