Joey Alegria

Primarily a cash game player, Joey Alegria burst on the Tampa tournament scene back in August of 2016. From there, he laid low for a few months before recording two big cashes during this series last year. First, he final tabled the $570, finishing sixth for $23,000. From there, he ran deep in the Main Event gracing the final table before bowing out eighth for just over $12,000.

Alegria’s early tournament career was littered with success, but he’s had a more difficult go of it as of late. He’s in the Flight A action here in the Main Event and hopes to earn himself a couple off days between now and Sunday’s Day 2.
