David Rheem, the WSOP Main Event finalist, is being listed by Bodog as a 19-to-2 underdog to win the whole thing on Nov. 9. Despite being the most experienced player at the final table his "short stack" of 10.2 million chips likely is the reason for the long odds. Rheem, a member of Team PokerStars who was at the WSOP’s mixed-hold’em final table which aired this week on ESPN, may live in Los Angeles now, but the Cooper City native learned to play poker with his good friend and fellow pro Robert Mizrachi in the Miami area.

Also, don’t forget to tune in Nov. 11 to ESPN to watch the final table "live" and be sure to pick up this month’s copy of Ante Up, which features 10 pages of WSOP coverage, all related to Florida poker players, including Rheem.
