Alec Torelli is a professional poker player who also offers poker coaching. Torelli hails from Orange County, California, United States.

Torelli discovered poker as a fresh-faced 17-year-old in 2004 when a friend invited him to a home game. He may have only won $12, but playing poker lit something inside of Torelli, and he began studying the game, and putting what he learned into practice at the tables.

Although initially concentrating on online cash games when he turned 18, Torelli discovered he had a penchant for tournament poker, and headed to the 2006 $5,000 Aruba Poker Classic, finishing in 8th place for $39,730. He followed it up by winning first place in the FTOPS on Full Tilt Poker, then the biggest online poker tournament in history for $288,000.

Torelli headed to the 2008 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, where he entered the $10,000 World Championship Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em event. He navigated his way to the final confrontation, where Kenny Tran defeated him. Although Torelli missed out on a coveted WSOP bracelet, he did reel in a $336,896 score for his efforts.

Later that year, Torelli won back-to-back events at the 6th Annual Festa Al Lago Classic in Las Vegas for prizes totaling more than $200,000.

At the 2009 WSOP, Torelli finished sixth in the $40,000 buy-in 40th Anniversary Event, a result that came with an impressive $329,730. Torelli was full of confidence and took that fell good factor into the $15,400 Bellagio Cup V, part of the World Poker Tour, in July 2009. He banked $271,165 for a fourth-place finish.

In 2011, Alec moved to Macau to compete in the high-stakes nosebleed games out there and called this special region of China his home for the next few years. In 2013 he was among the first pros to open a YouTube channel, where he shares his knowledge with his viewers. He also founded the popular training site, Conscious Poker.

His interests range from business to investing, in particular, crypto, real estate, and venture capital.

"At the 2023 WSOP, Torelli entered the record-breaking $10,000 WSOP Main Event. He progressed to Day 8, where he finished 11th and cashed for $700,000.
