One player with a rich history of crushing the WSOP Main Event has been moved to Amazon Tan with a pile. Chino Rheem is sitting with around 450,000, and he's in a familiar position as his record in this event is quite strong: a seventh-place finish for a career- best $1.77 million in 2008, as well as three runs into the top 250 in 2005, 2017 and 2018.
Rheem is already up to his usual tricks, talking up his tablemates and walking around to other tables handing out daps and hugs in between pots.
He just played a pot in true Rheem fashion wherein he bet 3,000 from the button on and was called by a player in the small blind. Both players checked the with Rheem saying he "wanted to see what he got called by."
"Seven!" the small blind shouted.
"You called me with a seven?!" Rheem said incredulously. "Seven's good."
