Alec in Poker
With over $1,500,000 in tournament winnings and millions more in both live and online cash games, Alec Torelli is one of the most respected poker players in the industry today.
Known for competing in the biggest cash games in the world while living in Macau, Alec would regularly play in games where you bet a car and get raised a house, and the buy in alone was $1,000,000.
In his 14-year career, Alec has traveled to over 45 countries and been featured on ESPN, CBS Sports, Travel Channel, Fox Sports, Cigar Aficionado, Poker News and many more.
Compelled by his passion to share the lesson he’s learned and help others on their journey, Alec has coached players from all over the world. In 2017 he founded Conscious Poker, a poker training site dedicated to transforming good players into great ones.
Why Optimal Decision Making?
The game of poker mimics life in the sense that it forces you to make decisions without having complete information. After playing millions of hands over the past 14 years, and mastering the art of taking calculated risks, Alec has developed an unparalleled ability to apply the skills he learned in poker to evaluate situations in life and business.
Alec uses a combination of logic, intuition and self-awareness to help others make better, more informed choices, and determine the optimal course of action when you can’t ‘see all the cards’.
Why Marketing and Entrepreneurship?
Poker and entrepreneurship have always gone hand in hand for Alec. Soon after he started playing poker professionally, he began running a large affiliate operation for the world’s largest poker room at the time, PartyPoker, and took what he learned in this marketing venture to start his own digital company specialized in lead generation.
While running his company together with his wife, and traveling the world full time to play poker, Alec crafted his own tactics to optimize outsourcing and productivity, and applied the teachings he learned in poker about evaluating risk and decision making to managing a profitable business.
After seven years in affiliate marketing, Alec made a pivotal shift and decided to leverage the skills he learned in that space to create his own brand (10,000,000 views on YouTube) and poker training site, Conscious Poker, which has helped transform thousands of players from good to great.
Today, he manages an all-virtual team of 6 employees from 5 countries, typically from his favorite local coffee shop.
