Joey Alegria

After busting his first entry, Tampa’s Joey Alegria is among the newest re-entry here in Flight C. Alegria, primarily a cash grinder, is one of a handful of players who made the journey from the west side of the state over to the east side for a shot a World Series of Poker Circuit gold ring. Others around from that area include the aforementioned Mike Laake, Event 1 runner-up Bryce McVay and Wally Maddah.

Alegria’s tournament career started hot as he racked up a number of cashes and multiple five-figure scores in his first year on the felt. With his last in-the-money finish occurring in September of last year, it’s been a bit since he’s found a tournament payday, but he’s off to a good start here on entry number two having recently picked up a set and sent an opponent to the rail.
