Alan Goehring (* February 21, 1962 ) is a retired junk bond analyst and entrepreneur from Henderson. At the age of 37 he changed his profession and became a professional poker player.
In the World Series of Poker in 1997 in a $ 3,000 tournament he achieved his first success by taking third place and won $ 61,845. Definitively it could be attributed to the professional status when he only Noel Furlong had to defer to 1999 in the main event.
His first title at the World Poker Tour, he was able to celebrate at the Bellagio in 2003. At the season finale of the first WPT he could triumph over Kirill Gerasimov in the heads-up. The tournament had a buy-in of $ 25,000 and he won $ 1 million in prize money. With him at the final table were, among others, Phil Ivey, Doyle Brunson, and Ted Forrest.
In the LA Poker Classic in 2006, he won his second WPT title and won a hitherto unequaled high record prize money of $ 2,391,550.
Overall, he has won more than 5.2 million U.S. dollars in poker tournaments.
