David Rheem, one of the "November Nine" who will return to the Rio in Las Vegas in November to finish the World Series of Poker’s Main Event, got plenty of publicity after his achievement in July, and some of it had to do with some legal trouble in his past.
Nick Sortal of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel has completed his look into those charges, and his <a href="http://blogs.trb.com/entertainment/news/gambling/blog/2008/09/no_more_legal_issues_for_david.html">Action blog entry</a> shows that the transgressions were realtively minor. And Sortal says a check on Rheem since he moved to California from Cooper City comes up clean.
Ante Up is working to get an interview with Rheem for its podcast and magazine. If you have questions for him, please let us know.
