Dan Schreiber (born June 30, 1985) is a pro gamer and poker player from Troy, OH.[citation needed] He currently resides in South Korea.

In the 2007 WSOP Heads-Up Event, Schreiber swept Las Vegas poker pro Mark Muchnik in the best two out of three matches at the final table. The first match lasted 79 hands while the second lasted only 11 hands. At the time Schreiber was the fifth youngest player ever to win a World Series of Poker bracelet having done so 8 days prior to his 22nd birthday.

Two months after his WSOP win, he finished 8th at the Asia Pacific Poker Tour Seoul event.

As of 2008, his live tournament winnings exceed $440,000.
