Alec Torelli’s Reddit AMA
In early 2015, Torelli participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on the website, Reddit.

So how does all of this impact Torelli’s net worth?
Alec Torelli’s Angle Shoot Controversy
While playing in a cash game, Torelli was embroiled in controversy when some of his chips were ‘hidden’ behind his stack. As a general etiquette rule in poker, your biggest chips need to be visible to all players at all times. For most players, this means placing them at the front of your stack.
In this particular hand, Torelli had two $5,000 chips hiding behind his stack. This ended up playing into his hands as the controversial pot unfolded.

Alec Torelli’s Biggest Poker Wins

– $336,896 in the 2008 WSOP Head-up Championship (2nd place)

Is Alec Torelli Broke?
In recent years, he has fallen off the tournament scene with his biggest win since 2009 being just over $28,000. This does not mean Torelli is broke by any means.
With his two marketing companies, he is able to make a stable income regardless of how the poker tables treat him.
Torelli’s most recent tournament cash was in a very small (€400) event in Austria. This isn’t a great sign for Torelli, but his focus on cash games takes him away from regular tournament play.
Even with some of these signs pointing to him being broke, it is very unlikely that Torelli is broke.
So what is Alec Torelli worth?
While it’s almost impossible to know exactly what it is due to his business ventures, it is estimated that Alec Torelli’s net worth is $1 million.
